Parade's End Ford Madox Ford A well written story, and an interesting one. It sets you thinking. The story focusses on Christopher Tietjens, the last of the true tories ; the story opens in the years before World War One. And there are certain other things, which perhaps he ought to have done-and for which he would have been forgiven. But his code restrained him. For example, right at the end of the first book, he fails to make a move on the Wannop girl-even though he desires her, and she him. The title of this first book Some Do Not refers to that scene.
