Well, it is a relief to find an assuring story about aspects of social norms in the aristocratic universe. The explanations are defined with acuity and the nuance supporting the life of an upper middle class family is captivating and mindful. I was worried to get into the usual class indifference perhaps relieved by the contradictory happenings. Moreover the relationships of Ellen and Archer is presented in less lustful details with subtle proceeding which is commendable and unforeseen. This further demonstrates how romanticism can be looked upon which unfortunately isn’t the case in today’s modern society. When I started to read was expecting the sentimental elements leading towards the sad ending thankfully that’s not how it travels. By this you all must wondered the summary of this book?

Wonder where to start about this playwright and what to offer to justify the true shades of life. After all everything down to how well the living was and the difference it made to serve some purpose. Well, It is about Ekdal ideology that required its countenance and account of his existence which was challenged, tested and dusted by his idealist friend Gregers Werle, who enters his home to tarnish the lie that embroiled within the Ekdal family. Apart from few re known classic mysteries never tried books that deliver the flow of intended meaning through plays of such caliber which is astounding in my honest opinion. My favorite line is “Oh, life wouldn’t be so bad in spite of everything all we poor wretches need is to be left in peace by those damned bailiffs who turn up on our doorsteps brandishing the demands of idealism”. Thoroughly promising fare and highly recommended read for sure.

After Arthur Conan Doyle and few Agatha Christie series, this is the old detective novel that infatuated me. Being a fan of mysteries I tend to read any books that fall upon me; although most of the recent ones keep you on the edge, it is the old ones that deserve the credibility for its vernacular usage and lexicon nuances. There isn’t a rush for character introductions, but will hold your attention to the story till the end. Professor Stub’s character reminds me of Sherlock Holmes and his nephew Andrew to Watson! Totally loved the verbosity and amusing exchanges between the characters. 😊
