      When I started reading this book, I liked it immediately. A romantic mystery, set in the inter-war years.what's not to like? Then, I must say, that I found myself a little lost.d I never quite found myself again. There are a lot of characters in this book, and even after finishing it, I still couldn't figure out how or where half of the characters came from. Somewhere around the middle of the book, they just didn't hold my attention long enough to concentrate. I think the problem lies within the [...]

      I started this book with some trepidation, based on the poor reviews it received from my fellow GoodReaders, but it turns out that I needn't of worried. The Woman in the Picture was exactly my kind of book, and I couldn't wait to find out what would happen next. Henry Whitaker is an aspiring filmmaker. Something happened when he was a child that has colored the rest of his life's experiences, for good or ill. A second thread in the story, interspersed with his own, is that of his daughter, Miran [...]

      I'd read James Wilson's two earlier books, set in the 18th and 19th centuries - and imagined him to be a writer whose natural bent was for turnpikes and gaslamps. But this book could not be more 20th century in its themes, its characters and its style. It paints a wide-eyed, innocent picture of the British film industry between the Wars. The way that the narrative suggests the darker side of this world, and presents the growing poverty & desperation that surrounds it, is masterly. But what f [...]

      I'm afraid I found this book extremely tedious and irritating. there were several strands to the plot which were never brought together and a host of minor characters who seemed to add nothing to the story. I kept thinking that all will be revealed at the end but I was just left with a lot of unanswered questions. Maybe I missed the point. I also think the narration didn't help as I found it very flat and monotone.

    5. Derek on said:

      In this very striking novel, James Wilson explores the boundaries between fiction and fact, feature and documentary. In doing so, he questions every aspect of our perception, both in terms of history and of the novel itself. Set in the inter-war period, the story concerns the career of Henry Whitaker in the largely unexamined world of the British film industry. Even as we think we have the measure of the book, it tricks us! Wilson is a very good writer.

      I'm finished as in, I'm finished with bothering with this book. I read 50 pages and just could not get into it. I can't say I don't recommend this as it is all down to taste but definately not for me. It did not seem well written or of any interest, in my opinion.

    7. Lisa on said:

      I really couldn't get on with this book. It seemed disjointed and slow. I gave up in the end.

      The story is quite slow yet somehow drags you in, especially towards the end when all the pieces of the two timelines start coming together.
