Pomfret Towers: A Virago Modern Classic (Virago Modern Classics)
Pomfret Towers: A Virago Modern Classic (Virago Modern Classics)
by Angela Thirkell
Edition: Paperback
Price: £8.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable romantic comedy, 5 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I really enjoyed this 1938 romantic comedy, a kind of literary Jilly Cooper. Very funny, acutely observed, with some memorable characters, it took me some time to get comfortable with the book, but once I did, I became addicted and couldn't put it down. It is somewhat hindered by having the wettest heroine in literature, the highly neurotic young Alice Barton, a girl who is endlessly wringing her hands and about to cry for the most ludicrous reasons - i.e not being able to find her brogues - who I often felt I'd like to kick. Nonetheless even that unusual depiction of a lead character cannot impinge on the charm of the book. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars which I loved as a child and have recently re-read, 16 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A fabulous children's fantasy book, which I loved as a child and have recently re-read. Alan Garner OBE deserves to be much better known than he is. The story is based around the mysterious woodland of Alderley Edge in Shropshire. The children Colin and Susan go to stay with their mother's former childhood nurse and her husband and meet a wizard who is searching for Firefrost, a powerful gemstone which he had unfortunately lost. Unbeknownst to them, Firefrost is now actually owned by Susan who has been wearing it on a braclet. The jewel is spotted and stolen by the minions of evil, and the novel recounts the Wizard and the children's terrifying quest to get it back.

3.0 out of 5 stars One of my favourite novels, Rumer Godden's superbly realised and semi-autobiographical story ..., 16 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
One of my favourite novels, Rumer Godden's superbly realised and semi-autobiographical story of her sister's schoolgirl summer romance in the French countyside with a complex English thief, a romance which in the novel, ends in the death of a young Frenchman, is here transformed to the screen. Any version of this book I would be interested in seeing, but Kenneth More is so miscast as what in the novel is the complex and compelling anti-hero that if you know the novel, you simply can't get over that.

A truly great mystery novel, one of the great 19th century novels. Suspenseful, scarey and beautifully written. A classic in its field.

Pretty double sided item, however mine had some paintwork rubbed so I couldn't give it as a present as intended, but instead kept it, hanging it with the undamaged side to the front...

Deadlock
Deadlock
by Colin Forbes
Edition: Paperback

3.0 out of 5 stars which I really enjoyed. Strong characters, 16 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Deadlock (Paperback)
Engrossing page turner of a thriller from Colin Forbes. I've bought some more Forbes novels on the strength of this one, which I really enjoyed. Strong characters, and I am pleased to see that there are lots of other Tweed novels to be read.
