    Kindle The Road to Lichfield MOBI Ý The Road Epub / Ï army of tennessee.co road free, lichfield download, The Road book, The Road to Lichfield PDFThis was Penelope Lively's first novel for adults and it was shortlisted for the 1977 Booker Prize which was won that year by Paul Scott's Staying On As always Lively's writing is intelligent and perceptive even if the plot is rather slightThe story is told me an omniscient narrator but occasionally slips into the first person At its centre is Annie who travels from her hom

    Kindle The Road to Lichfield MOBI Ý The Road Epub / Ï army of tennessee.co road free, lichfield download, The Road book, The Road to Lichfield PDFLike a fine wine subtle and nuanced Pure pleasure with a long finishI had read that this was Dame Penelope's first novel which continued to astound as I read in view of the tight control of pace and voice But it turns out this was her first novel for adults AhaFirst published in 1977 refreshing to remember a world and time where people were not constantly tweeting and messaging and what's apping and nothing ever beeped at you But the underlying themes of our relationship with the past and repeating the patterns of behaviour set by our parents is one that is as relevant today as forty years back

    Kindle The Road to Lichfield MOBI Ý The Road Epub / Ï army of tennessee.co road free, lichfield download, The Road book, The Road to Lichfield PDFI really like Penelope Lively I've read several of her books and there's always good plotting and characterizations I care about her people because they are normal by which I guess I mean a lot like me She puts them in situations that are recognizable and lets them figure it out for themselves They almost always do the right thing which can be different for everyone I needed a

    Kindle The Road to Lichfield MOBI Ý The Road Epub / Ï army of tennessee.co road free, lichfield download, The Road book, The Road to Lichfield PDFI've become an avid Penelope Lively fan and I dived into this one It was like diving into cool translucent water on a hot day so lucid the prose so calm and unhurried the plot so careful the nudges towards a theme This is known territory middle class middle life middle England Sounds tedious and parochial? What saves it is Lively's understanding of what I'm going to be daring #pretentious and call the 'psychic infrastructure' of her chosen subject This could never be called a Big Novel but its virtue is in its small scale Anne Linton a history teacher drives to Lichfield to visit her dying father over the course of a year gets involved in a conservation project falls in love and reflects on personal and textbook history There are mo

    Kindle The Road to Lichfield MOBI Ý The Road Epub / Ï army of tennessee.co road free, lichfield download, The Road book, The Road to Lichfield PDFA typically English novel but while I was reading it I felt reminded of many situations in my own life The lack of emotionpassion is remarkable and captures intentionally? I am not sure how foreigners especially the French are traditionally portrayed as imagining the English The novel is easy to read and the characters highly believable The main character falls in love with apparently as much emotion as she invests in any reflection about work or anything else Relentlessly English this novel is nevertheless enjoyable and extremely discrete and delicately written nothing to offend anyone and altogether a cosy read There is a mild attempt to present different characters from the different perspectives of other characters but it is not taken very far There is also a very mildly patriotic undertone to this book I gave this book four stars because it is so easy and enjoyable to read certainly not for any revelation or philoso
