5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, 2 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Illustrated Summoned by Bells (Hardcover)
Having lived around the areas he talks about in his own inimitable style of verse, Betjemans reflection of his early life transported me back there with the wonderful illustrations adding to it's charm..
If you're starting on your Sir John Betjeman discovery or just getting an interest in poetry then this is a must have

5.0 out of 5 stars A 'Summons' to pleasure., 19 May 2013

This review is from: The Illustrated Summoned by Bells (Hardcover)
A delightful and colourful 'must' for Sir John Betjeman disciples, especially if read whilst listening to JB himself read from it on his CD of the same name. His inflections and pronunciations add depth and coloiur to the experience. I strongly recommend that you buy both and be uplifted.

Great drawing to add to the wonderful poetry - it just adds to the delight of Betjeman's finest work - a real joy to own and constantly pick up and read

4.0 out of 5 stars A nice book., 28 Mar 2013

This review is from: The Illustrated Summoned by Bells (Hardcover)
This is a nice book. I already have a first edition by Murray and I liked the idea of an illustrated version. I must admit I was a little disappointed with the illustrations. They are nice but they are really sketches rather than pictures.

This book was in very good condition, which is what I wanted, as it is one to treasure. A delightful read. If you haven't already read this and you do enjoy biographies, you might look out for a copy of this. I particularly love the illustrations, so evocative of the time and era. Excellent service and delivery.

This review is from: The Illustrated Summoned by Bells (Hardcover)
This is a most interesting autobiography told in Betejeman's hall mark style - in verse. This very unusual technique, of which he was a master, makes it a very stimulating read.
