Bought this version for my daughter - beware, it has been revised and updated and has sections of text and stage directions that are either different or missing, which is only made clear inside the book when you start to read it. This makes it difficult to use it for its purpose as a text to analyse in English. We will now need to buy the 'correct' version.

EDIT: This review has been posted by Amazon to the wrong book, it refers to the Methuen Modern Classics bright pink cover version ISBN 978-0-413-76790-5

By Clare O'Beara TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 20 Jun 2014
Format: Paperback
This cheerful little story is a modern day version of Shaw's 'Pygmalion'. Originally it was a play.

Rita, a Liverpool lady in a working-class area, is determined to make something of herself and find out more about English literature. She enrols as a mature student and her tutor, a habitual drinker who's washed up, finds her refreshingly interesting compared to the usual kids in his lectures.

Rita's husband isn't sold on this new fancy stuff, and wants her to start having babies like all the other women. The tutor enjoys awakening Rita's enquiring mind to all the world of poetry, plays and prose. His enjoyment is spoiled when he realises that Rita has grown past the lectures he gives and can find out more from summer schools and her own classmates. The story is not a complete romance but ends on a note of change.

This was beautifully filmed in Dublin, with Trinity College and the rooms of the Literary and Historical Society featuring as well as night spots around the city.

I had to read this as part of my AS English coursework and didn't really expect it to be any good. Some people in my class found it really boring but I thought it was a good read and made a change from the normal teen books I read.

great price and perfectly adequate, there was no need for a new copy, so very satisfied with this one. My daughter needed it for college study.
