This is not the easiest Forster to get into, not that that will deter her fans. When you do catch up with the characters, a problem we share with the local police, one will be rewarded in as least as big a way as is customary in a Forster.
The parallel story telling requires a little effort, a temporary requirement to multi-task. I found it necessary to be relaxed about remembering the early flood of characters, and corpses. Soon enough we get to know all the characters we need very well. There is always a lot going on, plenty of energy to keep the mind’s lightbulb lit.
The mix of cultural expectation, and the deeply engrained private pasts that we all carry with us are the keys to this powerful read. The parallel storytelling, the sub-story that starts the chapters will provide the glue. You will need the glue, but be relaxed about watching it set. The witness theme gets a clever redesign, rather than just a new coat of paint, in this one. Waves of all the characters past experience and the physical forces of the present, lash through the pages creating yet another brilliant Forster novel.
