An Ocean Apart


Linda assured me that An Ocean Apart would have a “proper” ending, so finding it in Oxfam in Aberdeen, I decided to give Robin Pilcher another chance. It ends well, I can affirm that, on the other hand I didn’t find this story anywhere near as engaging as Starting Over, despite the fact that the main characters are involved in the whisky industry. It reads well, and kept me occupied on various trains and buses, but it lacks a certain something to make it really good. So, still not entirely happy. I seem to be in the mood for disapproving of books at the moment. Well, I hope whoever picks it up from where I left it in London will enjoy it more than I did.
