5.0 out of 5 stars The first in a not-long-enough line of excellent books, 28 Aug. 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Autumn Term (FF Childrens Classics) (Paperback)
Autumn Term was my first Marlow book - 25 years ago. Since then I've been able to collect and enjoy the rest of the series (save one) and congratulate Faber for introducing the Marlows and their friends to a new generation.
The four school stories (Autumn Term, End of Term, The Cricket Term and The Attic Term) are interspersed with stories about the Marlows at home (The Marlows and the Traitor, Falconer's Lure, Peter's Room, The Ready-Made Family, The Thuggery Affair, and Run Away Home). I enjoy the school-set stories more because of the at-home stories.
Forest's characters are believable, and nobody is whiter-than-white or blacker-than-black. Nor are people Reformed In A Term By This Great School :) - all faults exhibited in many other girls' school stories.
If you haven't met Nick, Lawrie, their six siblings, and their friends Miranda, Tim, Esther, Janice, and Patrick - I urge you to do so!
