    Notes on a Scandal PDF/EPUB Ç Notes on PDF \ notes mobile, scandal free, Notes on ebok, Notes on a Scandal PDFIn the US this was published as What Was She Thinking with Notes on a Scandal in brackets as a subtitle Having just read Lolita see my review HERE I thought it would be interesting to read a modern take on such a difficult subject albeit with sexes reversed It's the story of Sheba a married middle class middle aged pottery teacher who has an affair with a 15 year old pupil It is told by Barbara a sixty ish spinster who teaches in the same school in a voice that could easily have been written by Alan Bennett except that she's far nastier than any protagonist of his Innocence and NotUnlike Humbert in Lolita there is no premeditation on the part of the Sheba; instead she succumbs through weakness not that that's a justification and excitement In many ways she is the most childlike character having married very young and been babied to some extent ever since first by her husband and recently by the manipulative Barbara Althoug

    Notes on a Scandal PDF/EPUB Ç Notes on PDF \ notes mobile, scandal free, Notes on ebok, Notes on a Scandal PDFWonderfully written brilliantly drawn characters who each vie for the title of 'most detestable person in the book' as they live through a most despicable situation of a middle aged teacher having an affair with a young pupil and the Machiavellian machinations of an older bitter teacher who is a repressed lesbian I would imagine it translated better into a film especially given the stellar cast of Judi Dench and Cate Blanchett than it read as a bookFantastic writing but somehow the story didn't uite do it for me 35 stars rounded down because if you don't like anyone at all in a bo

    Notes on a Scandal PDF/EPUB Ç Notes on PDF \ notes mobile, scandal free, Notes on ebok, Notes on a Scandal PDF Notes on a Scandal is a multi layered story While keeping up with the pretense of titillating readers with the lurid details of a much older woman's romance with an adolescent boy it skilfully but subtly exposes the hypocrisy practiced by each one of its characters How each one of them remained so painfully aware of Sheba's perversions while being stubbornly dismissive of their own Zoe Heller also forces us to rethink what we consider moral and immoral and ask ourselves whether we can really patronize Sheba Hart for what she didAt the heart of the story is a theme of social deviance but there's also a tender love story at its core albeit entirely one sidedThe story of the scandal is narrated from Barbara's point of view who scribbles down whatever she feels about
