Home Penelope Lively Judgment Da. In every other way it was so unlike as to induce a sense of cultural shock: there were bare polished boards instead of worn carpeting and many pictures and books rampant in the alcoves beside the fireplace. The sofa was covered in some striped material and had no broken spring. The room smelled of flowers, not damp: there was a bowl of branches from some flowering bush on the table. We're having us a day out together. Just my dad and me. And he's going to tell me all about those old wartime planes and that.

While the citizens of a small English village labor to restore a beautiful old church, a brutal motorcycle gang threatens and eventually destroys their work and their vision of beauty and order
Other reviewers refer to this as a look into small town life. Penelope Lively does human hearts and minds, not towns, and she does it with eyes open. The location is actually a street, near a church. An agnostic woman who lives nearby, and who is more into history and art, becomes the unintentional catalyst for change. She volunteers to help raise money to restore the church and in so doing, begins to interact with her neighborhood. The characters each stand on their own, beautifully and clearly drawn. The lost and lonely retiree and church warden who finds unexpected love, only to lose it tragically. The fluffy, funny churchwoman, whose life is the gossip and traditions of church going, The tawdry couple who have accidentally raised a very nice boy who has been until now, overlooked. The perfect mother and wife who does it all by the book, and in so doing, misses most of life. The church is lead by a lonely pastor, miscast in his profession, stressed by barely suppressed lust. The terrors of modern life, expressed by an unseen motorcycle gang, wreaks havoc with increasingly devastating results. The interaction of the characters and their insights -- and lack of insight -- is the story here. This is life observed, but not explained. Ms. Lively leaves the explanations to her readers. In mu view, that is much to her credit. This author cannot write a bad book and I am delighted she is so prolific. If you like superb writing, wonderful and complete characters, incredibly well crafted (but not speedy) plots, I highly recommend Judgment Day.
I am a newcomer to Penelope Lively, but I love her unique style and her quiet, ordinary, deeply complex, characters,. She manages to carry the reader along, even with amazing shifts from the inside perspective of "I" to the observer's cold eye, and in this novel, to narrate an incident in an almost "reportorial" way that suddenly makes you cry. In other words, she is full of surprises. This book ended so abruptly that I thought I must be missing some pages. Her descriptions are rich without being overdrawn, she's got a marvelous wit, and she doesn't waste words.
I like this author. She writes the way people think - all people of all ages and sexes. The subject ponders traditional values (hate that - but can't think of a better word at the moment) versus our newer lifestyle choices. Lively's books are always thought provoking for me. Small snippets of life magnified just the way they are in real life - events likely to be overlooked but still rumbling in our consciences.
Penelope Lively is one of Britain's most versatile writers. And for this reader, she almost never fails to please. Lively as a wonderful sense of place. From Egypt to the far London suburbs, the setting is always a significant part of her fiction. This book will particularly appeal to Anglophiles but will also be enjoyed by anyone who likes a good read.
A very tight, very English novel of characters who live around a village green with the church as its dominant theme. Some interesting exchanges on the nature of belief vs non belief. Poignant thread on neglected child. But ultimately not my favorite Lively book even though her writing is excellent as ever.
This is not Penelope Lively's best work, but it's a neat little story with some interesting characters. It has English-small-town charm and atmosphere.
Love all her books.
Well written but no action.
