The Frieda Klein novels mesmerize me, and after reading the comments on this page, I'm not sure why they do. But I am the opposite of repelled by Frieda and her walks, her house, her circle of associates. I like to keep the London subway map beside me as I read to see where she is going and how far a trip it appears to be. Maybe it's because I enjoy visiting London that I am hooked on these novels. I was less enchanted by one of the authors' non-Frieda novels and in fact did not finish reading it. I'll soon read the new Saturday Frieda novel and hope to enjoy it as much!
