A beautiful story about love,
This review is from: I Capture The Castle (Vintage Classics) (Paperback)
I've just finished this book, and it's one of the most beautiful and touching novels I have ever read.
The central character is so real - funny, observant, intelligent - and I completely believed in the world she paints for us.
At parts it is laugh-out-loud hilarious, and I found moments where I couldn't go on because I was about to burst into tears! Daft I know, but Cassandra goes through so much, and records it with such honesty and frankness, that we feel every emotion she goes through.
It is a story about childhood, growing-up, isolation, freedom, but ultimately about love.
Beautiful and melancholic, read it, and fall in love.
