The Running Hare: The Secret Life of Farmland
The Running Hare: The Secret Life of Farmland

A gem of a book. I implore everyone who has a love of the countryside and a respect for the traditional ways of husbandry to read this. A entrancing journey into a 'real' farmers mindset; someone who cares deeply about the flora and fauna of our splendid English countryside. I learned so much from this book. Fascinating facts and statistics. Some of them regarding 'losses' make you gasp in despair. But as long as there are people like JLS the 'real' old countryside will not fail. Read on!

This genius of the trumpet must be heard to be believed. The most amazing tones, shades and subtlety, how can a mere mortal achieve this.

Spine tingling, emotional and truly magnificent.

Brilliant strings with an unmistakable bright sound which I had almost forgotten. Not been able to buy them in the high street but will now always use these.

This is a 'peach' of a book. It floated my boat in lots of ways. Here is an erudite man firmly in touch with the land 'his land' 'his meadow' and by the time we've finished the book it's become our land and meadow too. Such a wealth of nature information, such lovely and appropriate literary quotes. What's not to like? Everyone should read this book so that we don't lose sight of what we once were and more importantly what we still can be.

I enjoyed it. It didn't 'rivet' me but there were some lovely scenarios in there and definitely worth reading!

5.0 out of 5 stars Do read this it will alter your perception of a good read!, 15 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Aiding and Abetting (Paperback)
What an ingenious mind is Muriel Spark's? An ordinary sort of setting but the plot is complex and addictive compelling the reader to discover more.
Who could ask more of a writer? To leave this author undiscovered is a crime in itself and boy does she invent crime and criminals. Do read this it will alter your perception of a good read!

5.0 out of 5 stars Her characters so well drawn you feel you know them and whatever the traits and foibles of each one you are compelled either to, 14 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Muriel Spark is the most ingenious author. Erudite, darkly humoured, fascinatingly complex plots combine to make this un-put-downable! Her characters so well drawn you feel you know them and whatever the traits and foibles of each one you are compelled either to like them, love them or hate them just as Spark intended. A brilliant read and an even more brilliant writer.

5.0 out of 5 stars A joy to read, 3 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Landmarks (Hardcover)
An evocative masterpiece of prose by Macfarlane. A joy to read. If you love the British countryside and enjoy dialects then this work will more than satisfy any etymological curiosity you may have. As always with Macfarlane you accompany him on a journey as he explores every nook and cranny of his subject and instead of satiating the reader stimulates a curiosity. The book leaves you wanting more and to get out there yourself and emulate his discovery mode. Thrilling, exciting, emotional and wonderful...
