I think I get that Hanneke - a lot of us have responded on how authentic we find the brothers situation. I had similar age brothers on a similar age farm (in Somerset) and a bundle of welsh border relatives and this did not ring true at critical points to me, and that tempered my enjoyment, but it is absolutely seeming to ring true for you and Columba who know the area (not sure what Dio’s excuse is ;-) )

I read several other books by Chatwin I equally loved though. I think taste does come into it!

I found this a tough read and actually found other things to do in order to avoid picking the kindle up.

I read it so infrequently and a few pages at a time so didn’t really pick up the thread of the story either.

Probably says more about me though than the book. Only a four :-(

I couldn't have read it on a kindle. I needed to be able to turn back and check things.

Same here Columba. It is just not the same, reading books on a kindle.

Got something to say?
