The Pop Larkins Chronicles,
This review is from: The Pop Larkin Chronicles: The Darling Buds of May / A Breath of French Air / When the Green Woods Laugh / Oh to be in England / A Little of What You Fancy (Paperback)
I've long been a fan of the TV series and had always wanted to read the original stories by H E Bates - well I wasn't disappointed, the stories are absolutely brilliant and bring to mind a much simpler and friendlier view of England, I am intrigued as to where his inspiration came from and can't help thinking he must have known someone similar to Pop & his family! These stories are addictive and I couldn't put the book down and when I finished it I was hoping that there may have been more sadly not! What I can say is that anyone who hasn't read these stories is in for a treat and I would recommend the book to anyone who has a hankering for a lost time!
