An alternative to the upper class, poshness of Downton abbey are the tales of industrial England found in the writings of Arnold Bennett. Totally readable but with a quaint use of English...The characters are alive and act without the need of telephones, motor vehicles or airplane.....
A relaxing read.

Very pleased. I was not familiar with some of the lesser known works which were a bonus. Well done Delphi

This is a splendid collection of Arnold Bennett's work. 'The Old Wives' Tale' is a masterpiece. And the Clayhanger trilogy and 'Riceyman Steps' are worth anyone's reading time. And there are many excellent short stories.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a bargain! 23 Mar. 2014
By tony76
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
To have all of Bennett's works for £1.99 is fantastic. It will take an age to read but for anyone who enjoys Bennett's tales it is an eye opener - I was not aware how prolific he was and how varied his stories are. He had an extraordinary insight into human nature and had the ability to convey the personality and thoughts of his characters to such a degree that you feel that they are real people to who you have been introduced.

I have read the first three stories and my Kindle tells me that I have so far read only 5% of the download!

5.0 out of 5 stars What a writer! 9 Jun. 2014

Heard about his work on Radio 4 so bought this for peanuts. Couldn't put it down. Read 3 novels straight off. A much neglected author.
