    A LiveJournal friend introduced me to the novels of Hilary McKay They are not fantasies or science fiction, and yet one of their attractions is that peculiar timelessness of certain types of family novels that center around kids, as written by English authors Well, no, a few Americans have done them, though not many as far as I know Elizabeth Enright being one But anyway, they remind me of Dodie Smith s I Capture the Castle and Antonia Forest s Marlows note just how much used copies go for A LiveJournal friend introduced me to the novels of Hilary McKay They are not fantasies or science fiction, and yet one of their attractions is that peculiar timelessness of certain types of family novels that center around kids, as written by English authors Well, no, a few Americans have done them, though not many as far as I know Elizabeth Enright being one But anyway, they remind me of Dodie Smith s I Capture the Castle and Antonia Forest s Marlows note just how much used copies go for It s not that the characters live sunny lives full of fun and games, a la the delightful summers of Swallows and s the emotions can be quite harrowing, all the so because they resonate with truth But at the core there is deep f...

    It s very hard to explain why this book is so beautiful and so moving I can start with the barest of summaries Saffron didn t know she was adopted until she couldn t find her name on the paint color chart in the Cassons wonderfully disorganized house Even though Eve and Bill Casson, her aunt and uncle, treat her as one of their own children, Saffy feels left out until her grandfather s will reveals a legacy she d almost forgo...

    Saffy s Angel starts off a bit harrowing as the author drives you immediately into the world of a family afflicted with artism and associated dysfunctions Fortunately, that first scene includes a walk on by a woman who can be used to represent your every day sensibilities and if you let her carry your own quibbles and expectations as she leaves, you ll be just fine If you can t do this, there s no way to enjoy the book so you d best stop there.Fortunately for those of us not tied too tightly t Saffy s Angel starts off a bit harrowing as the author drives you immediately into the world of a family afflicted with artism and associated dysfunctions Fortunately, that first scene includes a walk on by a woman who can be used to represent your every day sensibilities and if you let her carry your own quibbles and expectations as she leaves, you ll be just fine If you can t do this, there s no way to enjoy the book so you d best stop there.Fortunatel...

    Delightful A touch of everything old is new again here As comforting and nostalgic as warm rice pudding The narrator s tone and the characters language made me often feel I was reading the sort of books I read as a child translation books at least 25 years old And yet, convincingly contemporary, in particular with wry humor and unidealized characters The author s affection for all her characters, much as she laughs at them, is one of the book s principal charms I m in search of the Deli...

    I just LOVE Hilary McKay I have read Saffy s Angel several times now and it STILL makes me laugh out loud again and again even when I know what s coming.The scene where the Casson kids drive to Wales that s just got to be the funniest scene in a hundred years of writing for children It s just genius I also found myself really enjoying the excavation of the house.I say again Ifcontemporary children s writers wrote like THIS, I would not be so bitter and twisted I wish I w...

    I wrote a critical essay for school on this, and it was labelled by the teacher who hasn t read it as girly teen fiction , because it is not about war or best friends killing each other although there are deaths, and best friends Fiction Yes Teen Maybe, although there is a massive variety of ages that enjoy th...

    Lovely British children s book about a family of eccentrics The mom is an absent minded painter who named her children after paint colors, the hilariously insensitive father is nearly entirely absent, and the four kids are up to assorted hijinks involving keeping hamsters in pockets, stowing away to Italy, and searching for Saffron s inheritance, a missing stone angel.A plot description doesn t do it justice ...

    Enjoyed my evenings with this book Fun voice Delightful,charming child characters immersed in the kind of loyal, loving, sibling relationships that any good parent would be proud of, but seemingly caused by that exact deprivation Completely disfunctional parents, the mother of whom I felt sorry for and the self absorbed,clueless father, whom annoyed me to distraction A quick read, not something that leaves you with any profound, lingering thoughts but with a smile just the same I was engage Enjoyed my evenings with this book Fun ...

    To be quite honest, the overwhelming twee at the beginning put me out I could deal with the kids being twee, because they are kids, but the parenting in this book really annoyed me throughout, and even, in Bill s case, super enraged me I think as a kid I would have found Eve s behavior cool, or whatever, but as a parent myself, oh boy, I had Thoughts I got into the story for Caddy and Michael, though all conversations very well rendered in audio form, MICHAEL, DARLING Don t call me dar To be quite honest, the overwhelming twee at the beginning put me out I could deal with the kids being twee, because they are kids, but the parenting in this book really annoyed me throughout, and even, in Bill s case, super enraged me I think as a kid I would have found Eve s behavior cool, or whatever, but as a parent myself, oh boy, I had Thoughts I got into the story for Caddy and Michael, though all conversations very well rendered in audio form, MICHAEL, DARLING Don t call me darling, I am a driver instructor That little note about how he needs to keep from looking at her as long as he can, because once he does, he can never quite concentrate as much on the instructing And Droopy Di I would...
