Nella Last in the 1950s: Further diaries of Housew&hellip by Robert Malcolmson
3 of 3 people found the following review helpful
Since I stopped reading Nella's (3) diaries, I really miss her! As I got to know her so well in the first diary, I was well aware that her departure from my life would leave a void - and it has. I still think back to her gentle ramblings and really feel I knew this woman. I loved the words she used and the terms, and her honesty about things which many never would have put to paper. Nella came from the town my ancestors lived in, so there was a special connection for me as she vividly described areas they must have frequented.I would definitely recommend this book.

What a pleasant little movie this is. Not great nor brilliant, but just a sweet and lovely way to while away an hour or so. Maggie Smith, as always, brilliant, and an interesting plot which kept one entertained. I would watch this again.

Having read the three available diaries of Nella Last (Housewife, 49), I was really keen to see the DVD. Frankly, whilst it had some level of entertainment, as I recognised portions and connections with the actual diaries, I'm afraid it was pretty underwhelming. I have it in my collection, but, unlike the diaries which I will read again, I doubt whether I'd ever watch it again.
