The Old Spring – Richard Francis

I am afraid I have given this book up. It looked like an interesting premise, characters in and out of the pub, the owners, and the man from the brewery, the cleaner and the array of different customers. None of them jumped off the page for me and I did not have any faith in the. But I did try to become absorbed in it. The book was just not my cup of tea and therefore it will remain unfinished.

Nevertheless I respect other people’s reviews and that they enjoyed it and therefore my review is just to say that for me this book had no atmosphere and was rather bland.

Thank you to Amazon Vine to allowing me the opportunity to read this book. It was just not for me and I have learnt not to punish myself reading books which I do not enjoy. I read for pleasure not pain. I would be interested to hear if anyone else has read it and what they thought.
