Evelyn Waugh's "Brideshead Revisited"

This is our official May discussion, where we will be discussing the book that we democratically selected as a group. This time we are reading "Brideshead Revisited" by Evelyn Waugh. This book was nominated by Janet and the decision to feature it was reinforced by your votes! An Audio Version is available on CD at the Ann Arbor Library!
A brief synopsis from Amazon.com: "One of Waugh's most famous books, Brideshead Revisited tells the story of the difficult loves of insular Englishman Charles Ryder, and his peculiarly intense relationship with the wealthy but dysfunctional family that inhabited Brideshead. Taking place in the years after World War II, Brideshead Revisited shows us a part of upper-class English culture that has been disappearing steadily."

    This was a great book! One of the best ones we've discussed so far.

    This novel took a little longer than some others for me to get into, but I really liked it. It looks like I won't be telling people "we haven't read anything really good since 'Atonement'" anymore!
