5.0 out of 5 stars Simply divine!, 16 Jan. 2007
This review is from: The Lost Art of Keeping Secrets (Paperback)
What a fantastic read, I loved this book! My mum bought it after seeing it featured on Richard and Judy, and then insisted that I read it - like one of the other reviewers I was a little taken aback by the pink-edged pages, but once I started reading I couldn't put it down. The main character is really likeable and I was totally wrapped up in the 1950s world of glamorous champagne-fuelled parties, fabulous dresses and silk stockings, lavish tea parties and early Elvis! It reminded me quite a bit of "I Capture the Castle" (if you enjoyed Lost Art, then read that too or at least watch the film), with the large, draughty house, eccentric relations and young girl longing for excitement. The writing has also been compared to Nancy Mitford, which inspired me to read "The Pursuit of Love". Although I enjoyed that I have to say I found this book more enjoyable to read with better characters. I don't see how anyone could not like this book (though I admit it is pretty girly) - ignore the critical reviews and immerse yourself in it for a few happy hours!
