Must Be Read Completely to Fully Appreciate,
This review is from: A Dance to the Music of Time: First Movement (Paperback)
Don't make the mistake and think that you can read excerpts of Anthony Powell's epic and truly appreciate his vision. The entire novel (which consists of twelve separately titled novels) must be read in order and through to completion. The last two pages of the last novel provide a breathtaking conclusion that satisfactorily ties together everything that preceded it. Until then, I found the individual novels moderately entertaining; I loved them at first, but do admit that Powell's story gets tedious by the time you hit the 8th or 9th entry in the series. Overall, this book is much easier to admire as a whole than it is as individual parts.
