I really liked the Fifth Business, the first book of the trilogy. It was intriguing and maintained my interest very well and I liked the way the three boyhood characters reunited in an inexplicable encounter at the end of the tale.

As he goes through life as "Fifth Business", the reader becomes more fascinated by and sympathetic to his character.

The deptford trilogy. What’s Bred in the Bone. He managed all the business, but was not simply a man of business, because he brooded, in a well-bred, don’t-think-I’m-interfering-but manner, over the whole venture, including its artistic side. He was a sixtyish, fattish, bald Englishman who always wore gold-rimmed half-glasses, which gave him something of the air of Mr Pickwick.
