    1. Sometimes I wonder is most reviews are just confessions of the reviewer s hand me down moral code Peoplejust couldn t handle a book about poly lovers, incest, falling in love with 15 year olds, lesbianism, a very unchristian view of life and death hand me the wine and the dice For me, leaving all those preconceptions aside, I believe like Jenny in that childlike conviction that most like to believe they grow out love leads Too bad Alex couldn t hear Jenny s pure and abject cry outside of the sup [...]

    2. An interesting story, considering Bunny Garnett and Angelica Garnett s history An interesting love triangle that moves through and various parts of France I ve never seen the musical that this loosely based on but I d imagine it has to be very loosely based As usual Garnett s prose is easy to read and enjoyable This book was a page turner One s for Bloomsbury fans as will as fans of a good yarn.

    3. I felt this book was a synopsis to a book not a book itself but I thought the story itself was ok so I give this book 2 stars.Rose takes advantage of the younger Alexis trading in her looks and feminine charm for board and lodging at Alexis uncle s place Because Rose gives him sexual peace that he has never known before and Alexis gives her the security that she has desired, they both feel a spirit of contentment in their present life His uncle George came and interrupted the couple rehearsing H [...]

    4. This is not a novel for everyone Garnett s novel is somewhat outdated in its style, the writing is at times quaint, despite the subject matter Aspects of Love, the novel which inspired the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical, follows the coming of age of Alexis, a young soldier in love with an actress, Rose Alexis pursuit of Rose becomes intertwined with his uncle, her daugther, his uncle s lover, Rose s lover, and an assortment of other bit players The book was originally released in Britain in 1955, a [...]

    5. So, I finished this pretty fast.Never judge a book by its cover This book kinda deceived me, you see, I saw this beautiful picture of young British people dancing in a harbor in the early 50s and a couple kissing passionately, and I just thought I d love it.So, okay, it wasn t that bad in fact, it s got some great lines on it, and it s pretty witty , but it definitely wasn t what I was expecting It was some kind of light story full of ironies and tragedies in life that are taken lightly, and the [...]

    6. This is such an odd, European little book, and I have an absurd fascination with it that is probably the greater for the weakness of the writing Flaw or feature I can t give it a star rating It s never inspired me to read anything else Bloomsbury, sadly, or to pick up any of the books the characters talk about, both of which would probably enrich my life I guess I ve read some Turgenev and Ibsen Have I read Ibsen, or just read The Sanctuary Tree Unclear.

    7. I thought this was beautifully written and very interesting I haven t ever listened to ALW s musical, and now I think I will But the characters were horribly immoral It disgusted me so see how Rose just slept around with men even though she was married, and it was considered normal Alexis wasn t much better, and Jenny shocked me.

    8. This is the novella that the Andrew Lloyd Weber musical is based from It s so short, though, there really wasn t much depth to the story than what I got from reading the liberetto in the CD cover for the musical A very twisted love polygon story I think it s interesting.

    9. Garnett was a very minor Bloomsbury writer, son in law to Vanessa Bell I love d the musical and read and reread this book when I was about fifteen years old and continually pining after older men.

    10. Huh So that s why my copy of this out of print novel a super cool 1955 edition from the Olson Library in Marquette, Michigan was only checked out once I m glad it was a fast read

    11. Quick read, and really lovely I ve been a longtime fan of this musical, and was interested to see how it compared to the book I really enjoyed it.
