Mapp and Lucia: Book Review

51gzewW685L._SS300_If you enjoyed ‘The Go Between’ by L. P. Hartley, ‘Howards End’ by E. M. Forster, or the more contemporary ’44 Scotland Street’ by Alexander McCall Smith, then Mapp and Lucia will appeal to you. What am I saying?! Mapp and Lucia will appeal to everyone – unless of course, you are far too ‘taresome’! This is a hysterical British South Coast 1930s upper middle class version of Coronation Street. (I am allowed to make this adoration, I’m from Manchester). It is well worth reading the entire 27 hours of the entire series to get to know these wonderful imagined characters whilst they observe and perceive one another. You’ll be wanting to end every conversation with ‘Au reservoir’ (sic) as they do in the books, I tried it but it didn’t catch on…

Page turner rating 5/5

Three word review: Gorgeous favourite read.

Author: samanthahenthornfindstherightwords

Welcome! Thanks for visiting my author blog. I write every day, I read every day, so we most likely have lots in common! I currently have seven books available on Amazon '1962', 'Piccalilly' 'Quirky Tales to Make Your Day' and the Curmudgeon Avenue series. I live near Manchester UK with my fabulous husband and wonderful, gorgeous grownup daughter, two cats and one dog. I write three types of blog; 1) Fiction written by myself and accompanied by one of my suitable photos or sketches. 2) Ramblings and amusing observations on life. I do not tend to write about anything serious (but admire those that do). 3) NEW! Book reviews. Although my priority is completing my next novel, if I like something I will share it. If I don't have anything nice to say, however, I won't say anything at all. Please see 'contacts' on menu. Sharing is caring, and so is reciprocation!
