Read full description of the books:
I was surprised that I enjoyed this book as much as I did! I thought it may be a little 'old fashioned'. Although written in 1934 and is set during the first world war and just after, it could just as easily have applied to a young woman in the present day.
I was unable to find anything that I liked about Julia. At the beginning I thought that she was just a teenager who was dissatisfied with her life and that she would grow out of it. This however was not the case, Julia is very vain, her short sightedness and refusal to wear her glasses helps her self image as 'a beauty' (she can't see herself in the mirror). We are told that she has a long neck and lovely brown hair but as for beauty, I think that was rather embellished in her own head.
Julia has a huge crush on her teacher Miss Tracey but has the need to be constantly the centre of attraction, she even pushes Miss Tracey to the limit to get attention.
As she gets older and leaves school she still looks upon her parents a rather beneath her and dull, there seems to be little love in the family home. Julia is always trying to climb the social ladder and she determines that she will use her obvious good looks and intelligence to get somewhere in the life.
Having got a good job and a little more responsibility at work, Julia longs for romance. Of course with this type of character it isn't going to be just love, it will be a 'grand passion' she will be 'adored', she wants nice things and money to spend. As her life unfolds there is an uneasy feeling that Julia will go to any lengths to get her hearts desire.
At the time of publishing readers would have been familiar with the famous Thompson/Bywaters murder case and probably recognised the similarities in the story. I had never heard of this and I was pleased that the end was a surprise.
