A peek onto Her Majestie's reading habits.
on 16 August 2012
I love the work of Alan Bennett and was really looking forward to this book.It never really came to life for me.I know it was very much "tongue in cheek" but nevertheless I only laughed once whilst reading "The Uncommon Reader."
It was only as I finished the book that I remembered that it was Alan Bennett's short sketches that I was so fond of. Perhaps if he had written this to be re-enacted, I would have enjoyed it more.
