5.0 out of 5 stars Magical, 27 Oct 2012
This is the first time I have read H E Bates and I was entranced.The descriptions of nature, the changing class, cultural and physical world, the emotional attachments of the characters....I feel I must read it all over again.
I initially searched for the TV version of Love for Lydia which I believe was screened in the 1970s. I remember thoroughly enjoying this and, caught up in a wave of nostalgia, planned to purchase the DVD. I may still do this, but the book was very satisfying and I would heartily recommend it to anyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars loved it, 23 Feb 2012
The enthusiasm and dedication of all the performers and choir leaders are a joy. Didn't realise there would be applause after every number, but this didn't detract from the performances.

2.0 out of 5 stars a comedy?, 23 Feb 2012
I struggled my way through this for a book group. Didn't like any of the characters, they were so shallow. On the evening of the book group I discovered this was meant to be a comedy....I must be missing something.
