Book Review: The Night Watch

The Night WatchThe Night Watch by Sarah Waters

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The Night Watch is entirely character driven, an intriguing story set in 1947.It begins in the present and unravels as Sarah Water takes you back into time (till 1941) for you to to truly understand the storyline.
There is a certain amount of suspense that drives the story, but it does not grip you enough to make this a page turner.
There is a lot of time spent in detailing the characters out in the first section, making you wonder what entwines them together, by the time you get to know you might have lost some interest in continuing reading. Yes, the book could have been paced a but faster but once you get to the events which tie it all together it does not feel like it was a bad read..
On concluding, you appreciate the Author for the well thought of story line but the journey of reading does not please you as much.
