5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting and Relevant, 24 Aug 2003
This review is from: A Kestrel for a Knave (Penguin Modern Classics) (Paperback)
I read this book years ago, and chose to re-read it a few weeks back, which proved well worth it.
With having family from the area of Yorkshire where the book is set, it is fantastic to read how accurately the dialog reflects the language of the area. It also goes a long way to expressing the hard realities of life in poor mining communities.
At a time when we are once again debating the quality of the education system in Britain, and the old argument of 'things were better in the olden days', the impression given of the school in this book is the strongest argument against!
I love this book and would recommend it to anyone.
