My mother gave me that one for Christmas. I own so many books that it is very difficult for her to find something I don't own or haven't read so far. She thought that I probably hadn't heard about this one before and she was right. She also made a really good choice because it became one of my favourite books.
As I hadn't heard of Brideshead Revisited before I didn't have any expectations. I guess this is sometimes the best way to read a book. I wasn't influenced by anyone and completely without prejudice.
I wish that more novels were like Brideshead Revisited. I understood all of the author's points. He uses a clear language and good images. I'm looking forward to reading more of his works.
