A great story - not just for children
on 23 May 2005
Little Lord Fauntleroy is the dream Christmas story.
A sweet,decent and unspoilt boy with a heart of gold is winning over his old, disappointed and grumpy grandfather who happens to be an Earl. Reluctantly Grandpa has to acknowledge him as his heir.... reluctantly because his mother is an American; quite shocking for a British Earl. However, the new young Lord F. brings back life and happiness into the old cold castle and his grandfather's life. Then all seems to be lost as another heir appears. Well, all is well in the end and all at Christmas. A triumph over prejudices ang haughtiness, a triumph for decency and love. Can there be a better Christmas story?
What a damm sweet story, you mind think. This is just too much.... and well you may be actaully are right. But nevertheless it is wonderful and utterly enjoyable. I just liked it. And the movie based on this book (the one with Alex Guiness) is great too.
