Pressestimmen

First published in 1956... it still holds great charm. Choice 19990401 I can think of no better book to start the new century than one that reflects the best of the old in such gracious, entertaining style. Hull Daily Mail 20000101 The charm of Merry Hall, Laughter on the Stairs (mostly about the house) and Sunlight on the Lawn is undeniable, a mixture of the lyrical, the teasing, the understatedly witty and the self-mockingly camp. -- Ursula Buchan Daily Telegraph (London) 19991231 This [Merry Hall] trilogy is consistently delightful, gentle, witty, and charming. Reading these books is like having your back scratched by your best friend ... it's all so pleasant, you wish it will never end. -- Corinne Erly Iowa Source 20000412 Be prepared. Beverley Nichols' garden books are part PG Wodehouse and part James Barrie - full of hilarious Jeeves-like characters and events, with moments of Peter Pan magic. -- Bob Cowden Pacific Horticulture 20000531 The Nichols books are gardening classics; after reading one volume, you will want to read the others, so it would be best to buy all three at the outset. -- Diane Kostial McGuire Journal of the New England Garden History Society 20001204 Garden vicariously with Mr. Nichols and expect to be captivated. -- Rosemary Read American Rhododendron Society Journal 20010312 Delightful ... best read on a sunny day while lounging in your own garden hammock. -- Elizabeth Licata Buffalo Spree 20030320 In his entertaining and inimitable manner, Beverly Nichols wraps up his trilogy on the renovation of Merry Hall and its garden. -- Peter Kendall American Rhododendron Society Journal 20041014

5.0 von 5 Sternen A MUST READ! 6. Juni 2000
Von reader
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This is the third book in the Merry Hall trilogy; a hilarious series of books written by a "proper" British gentleman about the trials and tribulations of finding, remodelling and decorating his home and garden. The books are heaps of fun, filled with his beloved flowers and cats, as well as, rival gardeners and nosy neighbors (if looks could kill! ). Altough his trilogy is chiefly known for its superb humor, it often astounds with deep insight into human nature, and many a times it tugs at the heart strings (I ended up shedding a few tears over each book). I read "Merry Hall" (my 1st Beverly Nichols book) about a year ago, after which I was compelled to read all of his works (which in most cases meant searching for out of print books). I highly recommend the entire trilogy to anyone who wants to laugh.

5.0 von 5 Sternen another delightful read of Beverley Nichols 23. August 2013
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
The third garden book describing Nichols' time at the 22-room house Merry Hall, once again mixes his real life at that place with the ficticious characters "Our Dear Rose", Ms. Emily, Marius and others (mostly drawn on real-life characters) in order to spice things up. An utterly charming book.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Bittersweet ending... 6. Januar 2001
Von Dianne Foster - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Some readers of Beverly Nichol's books have found his writing hilarious, but I do not. I find him amusing, and have read the trilogy plus his GREEN GROWS THE CITY because they sustained my interest, but he is not P.G. Wodehouse or John Mortimer for that matter.
I cannot judge from Nichols books whether or not he had a particularly deep understanding of human nature. From time to time, he allowed himself to be drawn into odd misadventures with eccentric others, and he certainly had his conflicts with busy-body females, and as often as not he had charming female friends. His best friend in the world seemed to be Gaskin, his 'man' and his cats.
The central theme of MERRY HALL, the first book in his trilogy, is the restoration of the grounds and gardens at his old Georgian Estate. LAUGHTER ON THE STAIRS covered the renovation of Merry Hall--the Georgian Manor house. His third book, SUNLIGHT ON THE LAWN, has people as it's focus--those who inhabited the area in and around Merry Hall when Nichols lived there in the late forties and fifties. First, there is the sad departure of Oldfield whose gardening days come to an abrupt end. Then, there are various episodes involving the ever meddling Rose, tea with Miss Mint, fractious neighbors, overgrown fields, and wells without water.
As always, in a book by Beverly Nichols, there are cats. Nichols had a great love of black cats, and the cats often play a role in one of his tales. Most of the time the story is funny, but sometimes a cat meets a sad end. If you are a cat fancier, you may find his cat exploits familiar and amusing. This is a nice book for bedtime reading and a fitting end to the series.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Witty and Wonderful 15. August 2001
Von India De Carmine - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Beverley Nichols had a rare talent. His writing is witty and humane and perfect for relieving the stress of life lived in the modern world. When you read this book you will be saddened that only two others of his sixty odd minor masterpieces are still in print. Buy this book if you love gardens, or old houses or simply reading well written stories, some of which are laugh out loud funny. Beverley Nichols writes like Oscar Wilde, except his subject is gardening and old houses and the curious people who dwell in them.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A Must for Fans 31. Oktober 2006
Von Deborah Maufer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Sunlight on the Lawn is the third volume in the Merry Hall trilogy by Beverley Nichols. Where the first volume focused on the garden at Merry Hall and the second focused on the house, this volume focuses on the community, providing a humorous glimpse into English village life in the 1950's. Gardeners and fans of Mr. Nichols' spendthrift ways will be happy to know that large-scale projects continue apace in the author's garden.

It is a mistake to read the foreword first - it casts an elegiac tone over the rest of the book. Save it for the end. Also putting a bit of a damper on things is the fact that we realize in this book that Our Beverley is something of a coward - he touches so lightly on the death of one of the characters (real people - this is memoir, not fiction) that the reader is left gasping, and spends the rest of the book wondering if he has mis-read. For these reasons I have knocked one star off of my rating for this book.

Having said that, if you have already read and enjoyed the first two volumes, you will be eager to spend more time in the company of this author, and see what his friends and neighbors are getting up to. Mr. Nichols is a keen observer of people, and with his deliciously dry wit (and unsparing of himself) he turns everyday situations and relationships into real entertainment.

Highlights of the book include the escalating but ever "civil" fued between Our Rose and Miss Emily, and how Bob helps extricate Miss Mint from a very sticky situation involving the tenants from hell.

I'm off to order more books by Mr. Nichols!
5.0 von 5 Sternen Beverley Nichols Fanatic Garden Lovers! 11. Dezember 2013

Fabulous and hilarious and filled with clever bon mots, scenarios and advice Never heard of Beverley Nichols until my sister gave me Merry Hall--part of the Trilogy---now completely addicted and have read every book twice. As relevant and knowledgeable today as it was when written. Greatest gift for gardeners who know how ironic the gardening passion will always be and adore it anyway. The same people will thank you for providing a reason to take a break, rest their bodies and laugh at it all.
