There ought to be seven stars for this book!!,
Rezension bezieht sich auf: I Capture the Castle (Taschenbuch)
Perfectly crafted, endearing and charming - in short an absolutely lovely book.
I read my old peacock edition so often that it has started falling apart. And I know whole conversations by heart. Cassandra is the most wonderful character - sensitive, literate, highly intelligent and still too young to be always tactful. Her eccentric family is made up of people you'll never forget.
"I Capture the Castle" is a slightly old-fashioned but in essence timeless coming-of-age story that has the reader alternately crying and giggling.
Oh yeah, and though I always loved to imagine scrumptious Stephen and was rather annoyed with Cassandra for not choosing him (and amazed that she could so cooly state "I do not reciprocate Stephen's feelings" and then stick to it), I could understand why she fell in love with Simon all right.
Wonderful to read as a young girl, or when you're missing the young girl you once were, or when you're trying to abstain from chocolate but want the same comforting, nourishing effect... I LOVE THIS BOOK.
(To all those smart enough to listen: do not watch the movie though.)
