4.0 out of 5 stars A Children's story from way back suitable for almost everone oday, 18 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Secret Garden (Kindle Edition)
This is a children's story and I am a man in my eighties but I read this innocent story and felt pleased with the World, so unlike my normal reaction to events today. Children will like it - - - and I believe many adults will too. It is inexpensive as well.

3.0 out of 5 stars East end of London story, 11 Dec. 2012

Some of the happenings with Jewish families rather surprised me but it was probably a 'true story' embellished to make it more acceptable as a 'fictional 'real-life' story'. I didn't feel it 'came over' as being written by a Jewish girl. but I read it so it couldn't have been too bad.

I just enjoy reading about young children at school, particularly in part of the country that I am not too familiar with. There is a tendency because he is a Yorkshireman, for him to overdo the sentiment and perhaps he exaggerates anything attached to living in Yorkshire but I still enjoyed it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Kindle choice- You had me at Hello, 11 Dec. 2012

I did not enjoy the manner of the writing and so didn't get past the first chapter so perhaps I shouldn't
be too critical.

3.0 out of 5 stars Gladys Aylwards life, 11 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I enjoyed reading of Gladys Aylward's plight in China and surprised that the Communists at the end of the WW2 who took over appeared to be far more brutal than the Japanese from whom she and her children were escaping. However, her early life in Edmonton doesn't ring quite true. She left school during WW1 and could only get a job as a 'house-maid' - factories were calling out for labour t that time and house-maids were not likely I think in that part of London, but that is my interpretation

I recommend this book to take you back to your school-days if you went school that long ago. It also comments on some of the present school practices which perhaps should be understood even disagreed with.

Nothing wrong with the trousers except they have metal buttons fixed tightly to the trousers so are difficult to 'button up' and 'unbutton' I wouldn't buy them again

I think it was expensive, it was in a very liquid form so was difficult to apply without it going everwhere but I accept the polish did effectively polish the stove.
