Brideshead Revisited

by Evelyn Waugh

Loved the first book. Felt bored through most of the second and third. Granted, I read this book under the guise that it was in some way a gay novel, and it certainly was… at least for the first book. Sebastian pretty much disappears at that point, and the rest is just this downward spiral into unhappiness. Great dialogue, though, even if I didn’t understand half the words because I apparently don’t speak British.

Why I Finished:

I had the sadly futile hope that Sebastian would come back and he and Charles would run off together. Also, the dialogue was great.
