Loved this book. Gently humourous and informative.
Would recommend it to anyone who writes letters rather
than sends emails !!

I've just read this glorious book in under two hours after waking up way too early.
This book was leant to me by a friend as she thought I'd like it and oh how right she was so.
This was the most delightful read , with insight into personal letters from the likes of Jane Austen to her sister Cassandra, Winston Churchill to his wife clementine , letters from Wilfred Owen backed up by his poetry ( always a favourite of mine to read thanks to my college tutor who gave me a love for poetry)
I feel like I've been included in something so personal with the extracts from letters , and some had me close to tears. If you love letter writing or even receiving letters, than you must read this delightful book by John O'Connell.

Beautifully written, charming, witty and thought provoking. Would recommend to anyone who resents the tyranny of emails and the constant buzz of smartphones.

Not bad. 4 May 2014
By Patrick Reilly - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I love to write and receive hand written letters. It was great to read that someone else does too! I wish he would have included letter from the likes of Tolkien and Lewis who wrote volumes of letters, but I'm sure anyone who reads it will wish certain authors were included. You can read this in one sitting. More importantly, will it inspire you to write letters? Maybe.
