This entry in the Children of Violence series has Martha fed up with her life in Africa and desiring an escape to England. As she is "Landlocked," she cannot get true independence and is left with friends she is growing distant from and a Communist ideology she is becoming disenchanted with. She spends the majority of the book feeling mentally and spiritually stifled and taking up with various lovers. It is an enjoyable book, just as solid as A Proper Marriage but nothing akin to the masterpiece The Four Gated City. However it sets Martha up well for that final novel, and makes her later transformation believable. It also gives the reader a very stark view of life in WWII South Africa, an area too remote for warfare but always full of the sadness of the time. The Children of Violence novels are a great achievement and should be enjoyed in their entirety, so although this is one of Lessing's less well-known works it would benefit any fan to read it.
I was not certain what this book was about. I decided it was a character study and a picture of the time. I read it as something of an anthropogenic treatise, giving the reader an insight to a terrible time in our world's history. It took some patience to keep at it. But the writing was good, very descriptive. I don't know who I would recommend this book to. I suppose if one likes Doris Lessing, and enjoys history, one might find this a worthy read.
It's a rare book I quit after one chapter. And the only one, having quit, I'd think of reviewing! I just couldn't make myself struggle any further. To be fair, it's entirely possible that, had I been able to force my self to continue, I would have learned to like this book more. But I felt like I would suffocate if I read one more word.
A heart wrenching book detailing the loss of ideals in the yet young persons in mid-twenties. Best read as a part of the 5 volume "Children of Violence" series.
Younger activists would do well to read this series, as it illustrates the earlier history of socialist movements usefully, and Lessing is a superlative writer.
Excellent! A fine writer! All books are superior
Continuing the tale of Martha Quest, in this volume Lessing explores post-World War II Africa and the social movements that ultimately led to a post-colonial world.
Doris Lessing is a first class writer.
