    PDF Beryl Bainbridge ☆ ☆ The Dressmaker Kindle ¼ dressmaker kindle, The Dressmaker PDFThis was a strange book by modern day readers standards A short novel at under two hundred pages there is little that can be said in terms of the synopsis as its pretty clear cut from the first letter I understand the author was the recipient of the Man Booker Prize of 1973 which is to be commended however I felt disconnected from the characters almost instantly when I began to read this book The writing tone is old fashioned which is to be expected I admit to picking up this book on a whim from my library's World War Two collection Being a fan of historical fiction and having read some amazing books of the genre perhaps I expected too muchReadable but uite dull and without much sustenance to captivate the modern day reader Disappointing

    PDF Beryl Bainbridge ☆ ☆ The Dressmaker Kindle ¼ dressmaker kindle, The Dressmaker PDFAfter reading several novels by Bainbridge I've come to the conclusion that I will never be a huge fan I didn't outright dislike them; they just didn't do much for me Aside from a few moments this one was pretty miluetoast until the very end when something unexpected occurs and then it just stops with no satisfying conclusion I guess the point she is making is simply to show how insular this particular family is Nellie the dressmaker of the title though perhaps not the main character is in a lovehate relationship with h
