5.0 out of 5 stars Better than the TV adaptation, 10 April 2009
This review is from: Nella Last's War: The Second World War Diaries of 'Housewife, 49' (Paperback)
Having read the second book based on her 'mass observation' diaries - Nella Last's Peace - and loved it, I was keen to see if this matched up to Victoria Wood's tv adaptation of it. Actually it was better. There's quite a lot in the book that was left out in the TV drama. And as you warm to Nella Last's open, warm personality you want the book to never end.There is a lot to relate to in this time of recession. People counting their pennies and using their imaginations to make plain food more appetising. I eked out the last few pages. Now I want to read more of these 'mass observation' diaries written by ordinary people recording remarkable events during a unique time in our history.Ideally you want to read this book swiftly followed by the second book Nella Last's 'Peace'. Apparently she would love to have been a published writer. What a shame she died before these books were published.
