Waiting For Sunrise. William Boyd

Nearly finished  ‘Waiting for Sunrise’ by William Boyd. The long descriptions of people and places drew me in and the plot was intriguing as was the main character. A page turner with literary power. I can’t help  wondering if this text had been presented at a contemporary Creative Writing class the author would have been advised to cut back on the  descriptions. So what am I saying?  I guess that if the character sees loads of detail in everything as he does in this novel, then elaborate descriptive passages are absolutely fine. Great book!
