Retired miner who enjoys gardening,reading & listening to music & audio books,but most of all enjoys time with his grandchildren.
You would either like Miss Reads books or hate them so I suspect most of my friends would be amongst the latter,n
Miss Marple without the murder & mayhem
Her voice is incredibly 1950s upper middle class but her talent is undeniable.the perfect voice for what are very English novels & rather class conscious ones at that
Not really ,I don't get moved easily by fictional situations
I've read everyone of the Fairacre & Thrush Green novels,I've also listened to them all on audio.Not the kind of novels usually associated with we males & a retired miner to boot but I enjoy them as quite a lot of men do though some would deny it.Pure escapism int an England lost long ago if it ever actually existed,nothing dramatic ever happens no one is really nasty,cosy would be the most accurate description of these books & none the worse for that in today's un cosy world.
Another excellent written book,a difficult one to put down, I found the historical details very interesting how they had been woven in the story without it being a history lesson.
"Miss Clare remembers"
Delightful. This narrator is perfect for the book, and the charming stories of an english country village and the inhabitants is written with humour and affection. I absolutely loved it.
