    PDF/EPUB Margaret Drabble  PDF/EPUB The Millstone Kindle × Â cravenjobs.co.uk millstone book, The Millstone PDFThis is the story of a young academic in the mid 1960s who finds herself accidentally pregnant and singleI first read this covertly in my early teens having been shocked to find it on my very conservative mother's shelves I remember being very moved by it though too naive and inexperienced to relate to much of it Nearly 30 years and one planned child later I found it an excellent piece of writing albeit for somewhat different reasonsTimes may have

    PDF/EPUB Margaret Drabble  PDF/EPUB The Millstone Kindle × Â cravenjobs.co.uk millstone book, The Millstone PDFFor a book written as long ago as 1965 this story of an intelligent single woman who finds herself pregnant is surprisingly modern and sympathetic with a refreshing lack of traditional moralising Its heroine Rosamund has an academic background similar to Drabble's and is cushioned

    PDF/EPUB Margaret Drabble  PDF/EPUB The Millstone Kindle × Â cravenjobs.co.uk millstone book, The Millstone PDFI think I'm among the few who read this and got upset with the ending While the novel is readable and at least for the four fifths of its length manages to be largely inoffensive for such a subject single motherhood in the 60s it ends with the kind of run of the mill writing one associates with Mills and Boon romances Rosamund Stacey the Cambridge postgraduate is so bland one can hardly associate her with anything concerning gasp sexuality Somehow she manages to beget an illegitimate child with a man who has as much debonair charm as Mr Ronald MacDonald I won't give the ending away except to say that it reads like a meretricious

    PDF/EPUB Margaret Drabble  PDF/EPUB The Millstone Kindle × Â cravenjobs.co.uk millstone book, The Millstone PDF “My career has always been marked by a strange mixture of confidence and cowardice almost one might say made by it” Rosamund Stacey is an unmarried academically brilliant young woman living rent free in her parent’s spacious London apartment while they are away in Africa She has come of age on the cusp of the sexual revolution when the capital is about to morph into ‘Swinging London’ and sex is almost de rigueur for a modern city girl of her class and generation Nevertheless in that typically hypocritical British way illegitimacy continues to be tabooShe feels in many ways out of step with her fashionable and literary friends because she is secretly still a virgin While she thoroughly enjoys socialising drinking and ‘going out’ with young men she is in some ways deter

    PDF/EPUB Margaret Drabble  PDF/EPUB The Millstone Kindle × Â cravenjobs.co.uk millstone book, The Millstone PDFFor my full review main awareness of Margaret Drabble has always been that she is the sister of AS Byatt who wrote Possession one of my very favourite books and that the pair of them have had some sort of long running feud which may or may not have been over cooked by the 'gossip columns' but that either way they do not read each other's books  I am doubtful that it is out of any misplaced loyalty to Byatt that I have avoided Drabble's fiction for so long but with one thing and another reading The Millstone did feel slightly overdue  I remember half listening to the BBC Radio 4 adaptation a good number of years ago but although I was aware of the basic plot outline I was not expecting this odd little novel of middle class guilt and liberal neuro
