There's an indefinable charm in this story of a family that owned an island off the Breten coast, and of the school friend of a son of the family who spent a fateful vacation there. There is the clash of two systems -- the conventional English system, hidebound by traditions, under which the youthful visitor has been brought up, and the freedom of thought, the challenge to conventions, under which his young hosts and hostesses have been trained. The atmosphere of the household (almost an intellectualized and civilized Sanger's Circus), and the atmosphere of the island are convincingly portrayed; the dialogue is meaty and a challenge to modern thought; the story leaves one somewhat sceptical. But -- it makes good reading, and it is good writing.
