My first Strangers and Brothers novel, read as I greatly admired Snow's intelligence and perception in his description of 20th century Physics The Physicists and the Two Cultures. Best of all I found, his lengthy foreword to G. Hard's " a Mathematician's Apology", a great piece of writing. I'm not familiar with the world of Cambridge Don's but found this a gripping story and very convincing.
Its pace is slow but I liked this as I suspect it reflected the pace of life in a Cambridge college Not for the undergrads of course. In everything I have read so far by Snow he captures the dialogue, opinion and morality of the time very accurately in my opinion and his penetration and insight into human nature which changes little with time I find even more perceptive.
There are no heroes and villains-just stronger and weakergreater and lesser, better and worse,foolish and smart aspects of the same characters mixed as in real life.
We are all shades of grey and to find a black or white marking is unusual and it may vanish and reappear as time progresses. A great novel, gripping in its enjoyably leisurely way, and I suspect a very accurate rendering of a Cambridge Don's life between the wars. Inthe imminent death of the Master of a Cambridge college triggers intense rivalry and machinations among the other fellows as they group and regroup to elect his successor from among themselves.
This is one of my favourite Fire - Strangers And Brothers - Sensational (Vinyl) Having briefly served as a Fellow of an Oxford College I have always enjoyed reading novels set in academia. My own short-lived Fellowship, at Oriel College, was during the mids, almost fifty years after the events in this novel were set, and The Masters is set in that other place, over in the fens.
However, I could recognise so much of what happened in this book. I first read The Masters thirty years ago probably to the monthas I ploughed through the whole of C P Snow's eleven volume semi-autobiographical novel sequence Strangers and Brothers. I remember from that first reading that I considered this novel, and indeed the sequence as a whole, as being curiously lacking in emotion.
I enjoyed this volume more than the rest, but didn't really think of it again until five or six years later, when the Conservative Party went through its internal leadership selection process to appoint a successor to Margaret Thatcher after she was ousted in November It occurred to me then to re-read this novel, and I was amazed - it seemed to be a different book to the one I had read a few years earlier - it positively seethes with emotion.
The book was written in the s but is set in in an unnamed Cambridge College generally believed to be King's, where Snow himself had been a Fellow before the war. Like the rest of the sequence it is narrated by Lewis Eliot, a barrister who has been a Fellow of the College for about three years, and who still keeps up his private practice in London.
Eliot has had his own personal turmoils in the past and had decided to pursue the field of academic law for a while as a form of emotional rehabilitation. The novel opens with the news that the Master of the College has just been diagnosed as terminally ill, and is expected to die within the next few months.
The remaining Fellows have to elect a successor from among themselves, and it soon emerges that there are only two candidates likely to draw any viable support: Dr Redvers Crawford, an eminent physiologist, and Dr Paul Jago, an English scholar scarcely known beyond the walls of the College, but viewed as having great insight into people and known for the ambition of his ideas.
Crawford is to the left of centre politically while Jago is a true blue reactionary. Snow captures the different personalities, and animosities, marvellously. There are bitter rivalries, jealousies and conflicting aspirations, all of which prey upon the Fellows and render the forthcoming election particularly sensitive.
Among the Fellows there is a wide range of scholarly accomplishment. Some have achieved success and recognition far beyond the ivory tower while others have lost their way after a promising start. He is a medievalist, renowned and honoured around the world for his success in translating the Icelandic sagas, and never tires of reminding his fellow Fellows about his honorary degrees. The tension mounts as the old master's health gradually fails, and the Fire - Strangers And Brothers - Sensational (Vinyl) draws closer.
Snow's dissection of the emotions of a tight-knit group of colleagues and the relations they have to maintain is utterly engaging, and grips the reader with the same compulsion as the best spy or mystery stories. Since re-reading it in I seem to read it again every two or three years, and the conclusion and the various twists still contrive to surprise me.
As another reader has pointed out, this Kindle edition makes nonsense of the novel. The story line is muddled as many pages are in the wrong order. I'm going to ask for my money back. The transcription to Kindle is appalling. Pages have been transcribed in the wrong order and the book makes no sense whatsoever. That's in addition to the various typos and mis-spelled words. Don't buy! A thoroughly engrossing classic about the goings-on in a pre-World War 2 college as scholarly factions decide on who should be elected to the position of Master on the death of the incumbent.
Penetrating and compassionate insights into the hearts and minds of men, their ambitions, their complex and decorous relationships, their friendships and enmities. Their lives and characters are laid bare with a style of writing that is sinuously articulate, taut, engaging and always deeply moving. The hot-house atmosphere of the college is evoked in the reader's imagination as vividly as through any masterly screenplay.

Thank you for your feedback. Sorry, we failed to record your vote. Please try again. Translate review to English. Great service, good book. The life in a Cambridge college is described insightfully. Great depictions of academic characters and their superficial yet consuming ambitions.
One realizes immediately that if one is not an Anglophile of a certain type that that individual would not have the patience to follow the endless machinations and intrigues of what is a pitifully small world. The essential saving grace of the book is the absolute clarity and incisive examination of the characters psyches.
Let the professors plot and contrive to elect a new Cambridge master what matters is the motivations. The final chapter is certainly a downer but the end of any era is such. There is no question that if you find this book appealing, then you should immerse yourself in the series.
Beautifully written, this is a tale of an Oxford University College and the political and to some extent personal experience of the handful of senior scholars responsible for choosing a new Master the Head of the College.
It is a finely detailed story of the political plays and journey of the choosing of one of the two candidates.
Strangers and Brothers is a wonderful tonic to such appalling, effete politics. Here we find the caliber of people we'd like to believe are in government and other positions of power and policy-making. Finally, central to Strangers and Brothers are the contrasting themes of existential aloneness and concern for one's fellow man and woman.
