    Mi segunda incursi n en el universo de S Gibbons tras su celebrada Cold Comfort Farm Una historia anclada en el mundo rural ingl s que sirve como homenaje a las tramas de Jane Austen, con un estilo humor stico similar Perfectamente, Queenie podr a ir de criada a Mansfield Park una temporada Como en Cold Comfort Farm, la cr tica al mundo literario rom tico rural es disparatada Es incluso m s expl tica ...

    Enjoyed this, but it s far from being my favorite Gibbons She sets up this very fun story in which a Cockney woman goes to the country to run a BB with a fallen gentlewoman, but suddenly takes a detour into a ra...

    What a pleasure it is when a really good writer whose works have been largely out of print has a publishing renaissance.Such is the case with Stella Gibbons Cold Comfort Farm is what everyone knows her for, but she wrote ...

    Three and a half, really Full of nice Gibbonesque insights, but composed of two strands which don t particularly mesh, except as involving two individuals who arrive in the village of Bassett So, worth reading but not one of the top non Cold Comfort Farm books in my opinion.

    Una de esas historias en la que realmente no pasa gran cosa, pero la calidad de la narraci n te termina atrapando y enganchando A parte de estar preciosamente bien escrito y de ser capaz de transportarte a esa Inglaterra m s rural y campestre tambi n quiero resaltar la plenitud de los personajes, personajes bien construidos que van evolucionando a lo largo de las p ginas.Lo que m s me gust fue la descripci n de los lugares, especialmente las diferencias entre el primer trabajo que ten a Miss Baker en el taller de costura y luego cuando ya est instalada en Bassett Tambi n me encant el papel de Bell, pero no puedo decir mucho sobre ella porque no quiero arruinarle el libro a otros potenciales lectores pero s Bell es como un personaje que te genera varios sentimientos, es compleja en su forma de entender la vida y las relaciones, en otras palabras, es un personaje muy real.Lo que n...

    This books consists of two intertwined stories which really have very little to do with each other One is delightful, about a tough, strong minded single lady from London, and a dithery, gentle single lady who lives in genteel poverty in the country, who join forces to open a guest house The other story, by contrast, is very dull, a love affair between two not very interesting young people, which failed to engage me at all, especially irritating is the young man, who is nervous, neurotic and rather effeminate, the girl s passion for him is quit...

    This story builds quickly, effortlessly, with skill, verve and humour and relates on one hand, the story of the partnership of two socially opposite women who unite to run a guest house in the village of Bassett one lady inherited the grand house while the socially inferior Cockney girl has the cash and in parallel the story moral tale of the love affair of a couple who are irrevocably, socially opposite.The two ladies business venture theme subtley and gently centres on the essence of what friendship is and can be, while the love affair deals with the perils of virtue, reason and sense lost through a woman s blindness of the power of love to one could say the caddishnes of the wealthy, good looking bon viveur man but who actually through reasons not stated is ig...

    My favourite Gibbons so far I loved the unlikely friendship at the guesthouse and really wanted things to work out well for Queenie Having read some of Stella Gibbons biography I gather Queenie s experience of this relationship was based on her own.
