Canarino is a portrait of intimate relationships set in a world of privilege and achievement. They were all written with great feeling, that much was obvious, they just weren't that likeable in my opinion. Katherine Bucknell captures the tragedy of a marriage on the brink with extraordinary delicacy and insight and draws us into a compelling world glittering with wealth and social prestige. David is an American investment banker living in London; Elizabeth, his wife, is a woman of peerless beauty and refinement. I began to realise little over 6 chapters in, that I didn't like the writing style of the author. So I give this a rating which is as high as I have given any book, and without reservation. While, yes, there seems to be too much rumination from all the characters, the plot was very interesting and I loved the way she foreshadowed many of the events that were important.

Just as you are beginning to understand what they are thinking you forget why you needed know in the first place. My friend offered to lend me a book by an author that I had never heard of. This quiet book evolved into a real grabber. The characters are believable; I have known people like them, particularly Elizabeth. She is the editor of W. Canarino is a novel that lingers in the mind, a remarkable debut. Out of curiosity I looked up this author on Amazon thinking there may be a follow up, but there wasn't.

But because this was a Goodreads giveaway, I felt obligated to give it a chance. They have two children; their marriage seems perfect. The front cover is not exactly the most enticing and the jacket gives little away as to the sort of book it is. Considering the way it just stopped, I'm assuming a sequel is in the works. Its characters possess personal gifts in dazzling abundance, yet their appetites to succeed, to be exceptional, tempt them to risk everything. It is very difficult to give too many details as it would spoil the book but essentially the basis for the story is okay.

And am I ever glad I did. Like the drink of the title — boiling water over a twist of lemon peel — the prose has a sharp, delicate clarity.

David is an investment banker; Elizabeth, his wife, is a woman of peerless beauty and refinement. What is the cost for the heart of seeking perfection? For that alone, the book is worth reading. To be honest if I was in a bookshop and saw this I wouldn't do more than glance at it.

I also wondered about the title of the book. The first chapter is kind of a head scratcher. Like I said, I persevered and once I adjusted my mindset to the author's way of thinking I found it easier to read. So begins a tale about friendship, marriage and betrayal that is filled with unexpected reversals. However, the story itself revolves around 5 or 6 main characters and I didn't like one of them! Why does she want him to retire and move home to America? After a while I got past that and didn't notice as much, but I think the book would be improved a bit by reducing some of the descriptions.

Beneath its polished surface lie psychological depths both uncanny and haunting. They always seem to get too much involved in what a character is thinking, how they are feeling, and get way too much into depth on the character's motivation.
