Quill and Quire Review of Be Good

Posted By Tightrope Books On January 29, 2008 @ 10:35 pm In Reviews | No Comments

[1]From Quill and Quire: [2]
“Fowles’ prose is polished, her coming-of-age characters authentically self-absorbed. The novel is told from the alternating points of view of the women and their interchanging paramours. In lieu of straightforward plot development, each character comments upon the actions of all the others, exposing pride and lies all around. This device adds a layered, meditative feel and enlivens Be Good’s central ideas – that all narrators are unreliable and that memory itself is a form of dishonesty.”
