5.0 out of 5 stars A heart warming and true love story, 17 Feb. 2010
By 
This review is from: Must You Go?: My Life with Harold Pinter (Hardcover)
I couldn't disagree more with the two reviews I have just seen on Amazon; "Must You Go?" tells us the story of two people and their journey of falling in love, throughout a long and very happy marriage with a heart-wrenching ending when Harold Pinter dies. It shows us a softer side to Harold Pinter that many or most people would never have known existed, as an extremely loving husband and grandfather and friend.

Of course, as both Harold Pinter and Antonia Fraser have enjoyed successful careers they mixed with other high profile people who are then mentioned in the book - I don't think anyone would find a meeting between Joe Bloggs and his mate in Pizza Hut that fascinating - but perhaps the other reviewers imaginations cannot run to anything other than something close to their own lives. Antonia Fraser's book allows us to dip into a world that most people will not experience for themselves, which for me is what reading is all about.

I found this book took me to a wonderful world rich in culture, literature, fame and above all told me that whatever the situation you can find your soul mate in the most unexpected places and perhaps in the most unexpected person at any time in your life.

I would (and have) highly recommend this book.

Yes I don't think Harold and Antonio would even acknowledge a Joe Bloggs (unless it was the plumber) or even realise a Pizza Hut even existed. I happen to think they are the two who were living in a bubble in Campdell Hill surrounded by synchophants and total bores.

Not so 'Must You Go' as 'Must You Gush'.

I think your remarks says more about your 'snobbery'.

I heartily agree with your comments on 'Must You Go'. Two strong characters, coming from entirely different backgrounds, and having such different beliefs, but finding something truly wonderful together. For anyone interested in the creative arts this is a must read!!!
