5.0 out of 5 stars Essence of Betjeman
This is a terrific selection of Betjeman's radio broadcasts. And it seems to be get to heart of the man's passions, prejudices and, of course, humour. The talk on Tennyson made me laugh out loud. But it's Betj's love of English architecture and way of life that come through so strongly in this collection. Reading the pieces you can almost hear that familiar voice one...

2.0 out of 5 stars Not my cup of tea
A very pleasantly written book but afraid I quickly became bored as I come from the North of England and this book concentrates on the South.

1.0 out of 5 stars SELLER MARY47102, 19 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Trains and Buttered Toast: Selected Radio Talks (Paperback)
BOOK ARRIVED PROMPTLY BUT WAS CARELESSLY WRAPPED IN OLD TISSUE PAPER AND A RE-USED PLASTIC ENVELOPE. BOOK WAS DESCRIBED AS NEW, PERFECT CONDITION, UNREAD. NOT SO PERFECT CONDITION.. PRICE STICKER ON THE FRONT COVER HAD BEEN REMOVED BY SELLER, TAKING WITH IT THE SURFACE AREA WHERE STICKER HAD BEEN. BOOK COVER LOOKS SCRUFFY AND NOT AN ITEM I WOULD HAVE PURCHASED IN THAT CONDITION FOR A PRESENT. TOO MUCH TROUBLE TO RETURN - ANOTHER ONE FOR THE CHARITY SHOP.
