Ayers of depth to the hesitations missteps and tensions as James tries to win Katherine James's other pursuit is money and Spring follows his investments and schemes from a half share in a thoroughbred to a suit and tie day job he's taken to pay the bills Spring is a sharply tuned novel so nuanced and precise in its psychology that it establishes Szalay as a major tale. David Szalay’s 3rd novel is very much about contemporary life in London amongst a group of people whose obsessions with making money and forging relationships are often undermined by their own failings and uncertainties James a former dot com entrepreneur falls in love with Katherine who although separated from her husband cannot uite break away from him and seems unable to commit to another relationship Szalay’s style is laconic and his use of short sentences – and often of verb less sentences – reflect the somewhat superficial lives his characters inhabit However this rather distancing style leads the reader to feel distanced from the characters themselves and leads to a curiously flat reading experience As a result I found I simply didn’t care about any of them in the same way that they don’t seem to care about anyone or anything else much either Although this may well be the intention of the writer it didn’t recommend itself to me as an enjoyable reading experience
