Interesting but not my cup of tea!
on 8 November 2013
It was not quite what I was expecting, and although I am of the same era, and the book brought back some memories of my own childhood, I found it rather lengthy and boring in places. My childhood in the country with a small family was another world.
I usually pass on my books to my daughter, but I don't think this one will appeal to her, although she has read about it in The Times Review and we have discussed it.
