Good Behaviour

Book: Good Behaviour, by Molly Keane

Genre: Fiction

Where I got it: Bought second-hand via Amazon

Briefly, it’s: the story of Aroon St Charles, daughter of an Anglo-Irish family, set in a “big house” in Ireland in the early years of the 20th century.

What I liked: Wonderful writing, it drew me in utterly.  Loved it.  Deserves its “classic” reputation.

What I didn’t like so much: The spoilers in the Introduction by Marian Keyes!  (Virago Modern Classics edition)

Challenges: Molly Keane lived most of her life in Ardmore, Co. Waterford, so this counts as my Waterford book in the Munster section of my Read Around Ireland personal challenge.
