The Child Study Association just gave [A Sound of Chariots] its annual award, but it is difficult to understand why: the pace is infinitesimally slow, the main character is a reactor rather than an initiator, the other characters pallid…. Bridie is described as on her way to becoming a writer, a form of creative introversion that lends no energy to this lifeless fiction.
