I learned about this book from Second Reading Notable and Neglected Books Revisited by Jonathan Yardley a Pulitzer winning reviewer I added a dozen of those books to my shelves but have so far read only two I am somewhat amused at myself as those books are similar in that they have little plot but a lot of characterization Of these I can see why they were included for second or third readings In The Shooting Party the characterization is not just of the people in the novel but of the time period itself 1913 the very eve of The Great War To look at it through the lens of what comes next it was such an innocent time This is a story of the landed aristocracy but those of the servant class also people this book and they too are well drawn There are a lot of characters in this short book but it isn t hard to keep them straightIt seems to have taken me many days longer to finish than it should have I kept getting interrupted asked to do things not on my usual schedule And then I didn t sleep as well at night so that my daytime reading kept getting interrupted with a nap But this is a book filled with increasing tension building to one dramatic event Even without much plot one cannot help but know something awful is about to happen I did not know how and to whom After I finished reading I learned this was made into a film in 1985 starring James Mason I suspect it was a good one
