Human Traces by Sebastian Faulks

Knowing nothing about this book apart from the fact that I have really enjoyed other writing from Faulks I found myself increasingly irritated with the opening quarter of this book which whooshed through a rather unbelievable series of relationship formations. I stuck with it to see where he was taking them and finally found myself more engaged with the characters and Faulk's central study of the historical development of psychiatry. Interesting, even if the determination from the author to use every last scrap of his research was at the expense of plot and character development.
