5.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully touching tribute
This book defines everything that love should be about. In a world where people are becoming seemingly too busy to remember the important things, here we have a man whose heart was sprinkled into every illustration in this beautiful book. At 91 years old, Ronald is unlikely to ever read this article but if any of his family or friends care to, then please, please remember...

3.0 out of 5 stars Not a Story Book
Given the background of how this book came to be, I bought it as a gift for my husband. Unfortunately, it is a collection of drawings followed by an explanation of how Mr. Searle and his wife went through her cancer battle. There are no titles to the drawings, no explanations as to what they are supposed to represent, no story told along with the drawings. I very much...

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully touching tribute, 15 Oct 2011
This review is from: Les Très Riches Heures de Mrs Mole (Hardcover)
This book defines everything that love should be about. In a world where people are becoming seemingly too busy to remember the important things, here we have a man whose heart was sprinkled into every illustration in this beautiful book. At 91 years old, Ronald is unlikely to ever read this article but if any of his family or friends care to, then please, please remember what a magnificent man he is and the love for his Monica is only something I strive to have for my partner. If anything, this book solidifies my belief that love truely exists and it can sometimes just take a cruel end to stop the physical togetherness with somebody. The memories and love remain for eternity. God bless you, Ron, and your dear dear late wife Monica. You are outstanding and your honesty is so admiring. Please buy this book, and please understand it's meaning.

This small book is such a comfort.
You do not have to be ill or recovering from an illness etc to appreciate this book.
It is a joy to read, and although written through the stages of cancer, and the eventual all clear. I think it would appeal to many.
Lovely, can't praise it high enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple Gift, 5 Feb 2012

This review is from: Les Très Riches Heures de Mrs Mole (Hardcover)
Ronald Searle's final publication shares the drawings he made for his wife when she was gravely ill and undergoing grueling medical treatment, each drawing marking the treatment sessions, to glimpse for them both, a hopeful future. The drawings in Searle's trademark style are both delightful but also moving and his fans will want a copy. But should they know anyone who is struggling with ill health and in need of a dose of optimism, send them this. Never originally intended for publication, Searle and his wife decided to share them, a gift to the rest of us, before they both died last year.

This review is from: Les Très Riches Heures de Mrs Mole (Hardcover)
A wonderful book, and the illustrations are the best.... shame about the subject, but a lasting monument to both people. You also want to keep this book unstained, unread and untouched forever... its a beautifull little size. (Also.... keep it away from the kids - untill they are old enough to appreciate it :)
