What I love about Andrea Levy's characters is that they are flawed: prideful, naive, selfish, insular--and yet you find yourself liking them anyway. They are deliciously human, and Levy doesn't succumb to the urge to try to make them likeable. Her great skill is that by the end of the book, you do like them--and understand them in a way you never expected when you first met them.
