4.0 out of 5 stars For Dorothy Whipple Fans, 16 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: They Were Sisters [DVD] (DVD)
Good adaptation of a wonderful novel, although some of the most disturbing aspects of the novel have been omitted. Very disturbing and powerful performance by James Mason (such a good actor) and of course Phyllis Calvert is excellent. Wonderful that this long lost film has finally been made available to Dorothy Whipple fans.

It's always difficult to know what to buy younger women for their birthdays - but for everyday this is a great little purchaser.

5.0 out of 5 stars Long lost Dorothy Whipple, 8 Mar. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As part of the Dorothy Whipple Appreciation Society, it was wonderful to read one of her first books which are now out print. A book full of the themes which are so present in her later books - female individualism, snobbery and class prejudice, young passion, but learning to open your doors to what conjugal love is about. Wonderful read!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Dorothy Whipple Appreciation Club, 23 Dec. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: High Wages (Paperback)
We have now set up a Dorothy Whipple Appreciation Club at work and have been delighted that some of her other books have recently been reprinted. As a commentator of women, their lives, their rights and the hypocracy of middle~class society in Northern England, we do not believe that there is anyone better. Beautifully written, funny and sensuous, her books are both modern and encaptivating ~ as was this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars The discovery of a wonderful author, 17 April 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: They Were Sisters (Paperback)
Dorothy Whipple is an extraordinary discovery, Her analysis of society and humanity is so contemporary. She drags you into a world of jealousies, abuse (physical, emotional and substances),pretensions and superficiality with such humanity that you get lost in this book. Dorothy Whipple has a following at my work - we all shared the trials and tribulations the three sisters, their children, their husbands and lovers with fervour. A forgotten author that should never be forgotten!

Etoile Errante (Coliection Folio)
Etoile Errante (Coliection Folio)
by Jean-Marie Gustave Le Clezio
Edition: Mass Market Paperback
Price: £9.15

4.0 out of 5 stars The nobel Prize winner for literature, 13 Mar. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I did not realise that Le Clezio had won the nobel prize for literature. They need to publicise this more. Beautifully written - the way that only french authors can do with and make it interesting rather than skipping a long passages of description - you are there - his use of the french language is exceptional and the story poignant.

5.0 out of 5 stars The family is missing Henry, 12 Oct. 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have had Henry for more than 25 years and he has finally died despite being loved and cherished all those years by my mother, my kids and myself. He has never failed me until now. So I am about to purchase Henry Mark 2 as the family misses him.
