As a long-time Leslie Thomas fan I was a little disappointed with his latest. Typical of his later war novels but not as good as 'Waiting For The Day', with characters and incidents not as well drawn. Like the latter, though, it evokes a poignant sense of place and time. He's such a good writer, I wish he'd get back to writing 'main character' novels of the standard of 'The Adventures of Goodnight and Loving' and 'Running Away'.

A new title by Leslie Thomas is always an event for me. "Dover Beach" lived up to all expectations, as good a novel as he has ever written, the kind that makes reading a great experience and finishing it a regret. The author is at the top of the tree in writing on England in World War II, capturing the humour, the spirit, the highs and lows of the time through the eyes and activities of characters so well drawn that you believe you know them and feel that this is how it was as the phoney war moved into real war and those effected adjusted to it and in many cases became unlikely heroes.

If you want a feel for what the war was like for the people of Dover this is a must read. Characters and story lines seem exactly like real life situations. This is an insight into daily lives, loves, oddities and tradegies on the home front during WW2.

We used to laugh when old men boasted about fighting for The country. Through Leslie we are still laughing, but with empathy and a few tears thrown in.

A delightful insight into the post Dunkirk (Dunkerque) days of the 2nd World War for the inhabitants of Dover - less than 25 miles from enemy lines and within range of their gun emplacements. Beautifully told with humour and pathos, several lives are focussed on including squaddies, police, local inhabitants and their.children (running wild with schools closed). Recommended.

As a long term fan of Thomas I find his latter books a little disappointing, no real story, more a collection of war memories.Read more
I love books by Leslie Thomas, they are so believable and funny in places.....this book was not one of his best, not a real page turner....The story line was a bit weak.Read more
As always, Leslie Thomas is a good read. Good story line, good plot and great fun to read. Well done.
I haven't read this book yet, but as Leslie Thomas is my favourite author and I have all his books, I know I will love this one too!
