(2,5) I’m sorry, I love these books but I made a mistake watching the tv series before reading the books, and this book was just ok to me. I still love you Patrick

On rereading this series I found myself consistently a little disappointed, it's just not quite as engaging as I once found it. I find this book particularly lacking in the treatment of Mary, who I feel is left feeling two dimensional next to the other characters. In all the books of the series there are some shockingly moving and beautiful passages, and this book provides a satisfying ending to Patrick's story, it is definitely still a beautiful series well worth reading

At last indeed. Not necessarily as dazzling as some of its predecessors, but realistically satisfying. The references to psychology and philosophy are as deep as the literary ones and help to turn Patrick's character fully inside out, to him and the reader simultaneously. From the beginning of the series I had wanted to see Patrick finally swim instead of sinking (which recalls the horror of one early formative experience) and by the end, his experience dissipates at last into something approaching the ordinary. A quiet victory.

so yea, it's now about 2 hours before I have to get up for work, and it's going to be a long day, but the lack of sleep is worth it, as St Aubyn just could not be put down. Will write a proper review of all 5 once I get proper sleep. Too hyped up from Patrick Melrose to sleep or write coherently.
