Read full description of the books The Inn at the Edge of the World:Haven't read any Alice Thomas Ellis for a while but I picked this up in a second hand book shop a couple of weeks ago and I saw it was about five people wishing to get away and miss the Christmas festivities so I thought it'd be quite fun to read it at the proper season. It didn't disappoint. Her dialogue is clever and witty without being shoveled into the story to show how clever and witty she is. It has mystery, hinted at romance, echoes of supernatural goings on, jealousy and unrequited admiration. Add to that mix a couple of pantomime characters who are bizarre grotesques writ large but harmless and the gradual unfolding of a tension concerning some of the main characters and you have an easy to read but fairly tense story. Without giving anything away, one of the main underlying threads of the story is unravelled and re-wound very satisfactorily but others are left trailing and unresolved. And the final paragraph is deliciously obscure and a whole new set of questions arises.
