Swallows and amazons hardback box set
Swallows and Amazons (Swallows and Amazons, #1) by Arthur RansomeRead as part of The Infinite Variety Reading Challenge, based on the BBCs Big Read Poll of 2003.
Swallows and Amazons, despite it being a popular old-fashioned childrens book that almost every adult in England would have read, has never been on my radar and I dont think Id ever even heard of it before. I imagine its because some people think that Titty would make me laugh (there was a titter, but I am English).
Theres not a lot I can really say about this book, despite nearly giving it five stars. It was just written so well and simply that I could not find many faults. The flow of the book was almost perfect and we went from one day on Wild Cat Island with the children to the next with ease. All the elements were pretty simple, but it just worked.
The plot and writing may have been very simple but they were very effective. It is a book to be read at ease. It will not challenge your mind and it probably wont make you think (except about the atrocious manner in which we fear leaving our children alone for even five minutes, not because we are uptight but because it is easier to be a monster now) and it definitely wont tax you mentally. It is simply a great adventure novel for children.
A small note on why it was not five stars (because I know how precious we find them and seriously we take ratings) and thats because it simply did not give me the five star feeling. Ive felt it before and Ill feel it again, but it wasnt here.
