I studied this book many years ago for A level English literature and loved it then. I've since re-read it and enjoyed it just as much. It's the true story of a young man's struggle with religion. He was raised in a very strict religious household by extremely intelligent parents who were contempories of Darwin and it is fascinating to read of the mental and spiritual turmoil he endures before eventually coming to his own conclusions. I highly recommend it and actually found it a very easy read and a book that has stayed in my thoughts for several decades.

I left this with some reluctance and I was left wondering how the subsequent relationship between father and son developed when Edmund grew older and was himself a husband and father. I wondered how accurate were Edmunds recollections and I thought it would have been interesting to read a parallel account written by Gosse senior

Both fascinating and boring - because this is exactly the upbringing I had a hundred years later, and the thinking had not evolved.

Of a normal boy brought up by fanatically religious parents, to finally strike free and find his own way. Recommended
