    This is another vaguely rip offish version of I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith Confession I m not original about selecting books to read I was looking at different book sites on the web and

the Castle I m still planning on reading the others, as well Bring on the Elvis impersonators I ne This is another vaguely rip offish version of I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith Confession I m not original about selecting books to read I was looking at different book sites on the web and putting in favorite books to see what came up when I came across The Lost Art of Keeping Secrets I d read all of the books that were like all of my other favorites, except for Dodie Smith s I Capture the Castle I m still planning on reading the others, as well Bring on the Elvis impersonators I need to get outThat could be read that I need to get a life outdoors but what I really meant was that I need to read different kinds of books if I d read everything considered similar to everything else I already like I liked that This is safe and probably won t make me feel bad, I said to myself I love I Capture the Castle because it is about paying attention to people you care about and trying to understand them as they are, noor less It s also about daydreaming and hoping you arethan you are I know this feeling I shouldn t read books that think the appeal was living in a run down castle I shouldn t but I ve got one that s hugely popular in Iran to read next Side note I ve had unselected for quite a long time of my goodreads life the box Share your reviews with partners of goodreads Somehow, my reviews kept haunting me elsewhere on the internet like a pornography photo a teenager in a Lifetime movie took Her 80s celebrity mama does her best but the picture just won t ever die Will her foolishness haunt her forever So I started reading Eva Rice s The Lost Art of Keeping Secrets before I logged on to goodreads to check it out Wait, chicklit I m not a snob or anything, it s just that the books I personally associate with chicklit are what I associate with bad young adult novels that don t aspire to aim higher than Twilight An assumption that the audience doesn t care and you don t have to do your best, I mean I know there are tons of great young adult books out there, not just from my own teen days, and because I m a fantasy fanatic and for a long time that was where you got new fantasy novels with kickbutt heroines I don t know where to look in chicklit so if there are bastians of quality in there I m not reading them I ve already admitted to not looking far outside my favorites anyway I probably read a couple that were loaned out to me from a friend and then wasn t interested enough to ever peek into the genre again That s a shame because it means I hardly ever get to use my Missjacksonifyou renasty shelf that is my chicklit shelf Okay, so if The Lost Art of Keeping Secrets was a young adult novel I would whine that the author gave up making it all that it could be because it was for a young adult novel and teenagers apparently publishers believe this don t care if important parts are rushed They are young and have their whole lives ahead of them I imagine they say as they pen a nonending Chicklit brick wall ending and no whole life ahead of them Twenty was adult in the 50s So I have prejudices against chicklit that I don t really understand I suspect it has something to do with genres All genres may have these Romance novels recycle plots like every reader read their first romance novel that day Fantasy novels often read like their readers never heard of The Lord of the Rings, Earthsea or Star Wars where were they living Anyway, I was kinda annoyed because I had the feeling the book was not what it could be because of genre laziness It s an historical Pack on the setting Who cares if it distracts from the story Sighs.Penelope is an eighteen year old girl in London in 1955 before my mom was born Sorry, that s my timetable of really old She lives in a decrepit mansion that is far beyond its past glory Her mom is still young she married and had her first child at seventeen and obsessed with her own beauty She s one of those women that hate other women That said it all to me I felt that Rice could ve left it at that and didn t need to go on and on about how gorgeous Talitha was, or that she scorned her daughter when it counted once in a great white whale doesn t cut it when you re a young woman who needs her mother She spends the money they don t have on Dior Like in Castle , they don t do anything real to help out the money situation It was difficult to feel sorry for them when they had food to eat, a servant and Penelope only worked one day a week in an antiques store She didn t protest too hard when her mama bought her new party dresses, either I guess the author wanted to evoke the lost great houses tragedy of post war England I didn t give a crap in Atonement and I didn t give a crap here It isn t that romantic to live in a freezing house I ve lived in a house with no a c during Florida summers The reason to save the house should have beencompelling than it has always been there.Penelope s life gets some excitement when Charlotte barrels into her life at the bus station she s so poor that she takes the bus twice a year Penelope, that is I sorta liked Charlotte She was mostly sweet, in a selfish way, and loved life However, there were times when I felt like I was watching movie montages of characters having fun and getting closer in a movie to save on time and convince you of great feeling that happened too fast Only it didn t save on time and it was constant mentions of how easy going Charlotte was, how everyone liked her, how she turned offbeat behavior into charm, grace, charm, good looking, soooo charming constantly until I wanted to scream OKAY, I GET IT CHARLOTTE IS THE PERFECT SOCIETY GIRL It reminded me of when my mom would sigh over how charming and what a big user my father was Like the using people part wasn t important at all It was annoying as reading Sherlock Holmes tell Watson he had the answer the whole time, when she did her superior act Charlotte is like that about life stuff Oh, you don t love him Oh, that wouldn t work out What makes her so special No, I didn t mean that Please don t tell me again If only at some point Penelope had stood up for herself it would have been okay But she really doesn t She s LUCKY that someone like her could attract their attention Riiiight.Charlotte s cousin, Harry, was an asshole I prayed that he was not the love interest I know he s probably the love interest but I really hope he s not, I said I wanted Penelope to tell him off for being an asshole Other characters telling Penelope that he loved her was not doing it for me He s obsessed with this American society chick, Marina He liked feeling good that a pretty girl paid him attention Even better, he got attention because she paid him attention She dumps him because he has no money and connections Somehow, Penelope is roped into pretending to be his girlfriend to make the other girl jealous He s pretty insulting about the whole deal He s an asshole Who cares if he has one blue eye and one brown one David Bowie will not make me forgive Never Let Me Down with his one green and one blue eye.And the namedropping was ridiculous Marina knew Ari Onassis Have you heard of this guy, Elvis He s gonna be big James Dean times fifty mentions Hey, why didn t you say this was set in 1955 C.S Lewis Check Penelope and Charlotte are obsessed with Johnnie Ray I had actually heard of him I have no idea why I had heard of him.My favorite part of the book was how Penelope pretended to like jazz Before she discovered Johnnie Ray who made her feel alive and colorful, she d collect jazz records and fake it about jazz She s still nervous to admit she likes Johnny Ray and doesn t like jazz This saidto me about Penelope being afraid to live outside of shadows than anything else It s too bad her new life was living in other people s shadows She doesn t admit it, though, which was a huge failing of the book It was a better book when I pretended it had the potential for that to happen It also killed me the mentions of teddy boys I know, I complained about namedropping I can t help it I find the teddy boys to be so amusing I love how John Lennon pretended he was one when he wasn t.I liked reading about rations after the war Since Gravity s Rainbow I m perversely fascinated by nasty foods they ate during post war England to compromise for the lack of good treats and English food is supposed to be bad anyway, right My favorite aisle in the shopping market is the foriegn food aisles I like looking at the wine candy and wondering if it came about like that nasty gin marshmallow from GR.I wish that Penelope had lived outside of someone else s shadow Her new friend Rocky, the music producer, was a red herring I saw it coming that he d end up with her mother Her change of heart and will to live in the new age was not entirely believable If she had found love in a way that didn t read like a loose end being tied up, maybe C mon, he was initially her daughter s love interest Yuck And a music producer come to town to meet her music and America obsessed brother, Inigo Rice should have stuck to the initial story of a girl stifled by 1950 s England who doesn t admit she wants a change And earned it Okay, I admit I feltkindly towards the book after this evening when I watched An Education about a girl who felt stifled by 1960 s England What a shallow mess THAT was.It was a real memoir from a woman who wanted to point the finger at her parents for her messed up love life they didn t stop her AND talk about how special her teenaged self was cause she could speak French Penelope s relationship with her mother felt real to me until it was tied up too neatly I believe a girl will take what she can get, but I also believe that she ll feel sad about the wasted years and wonder why she wasn t enough to snap her out of it Penelope should have askedof Harry, too She should have askedof Charlotte Why else write in the form of a memoir Isn t it YOUR life Maybe that s where the chicklit tag comes in It s not personal enough I didn t get mad until the ending Three stars for being an enjoyable enough read until the ending and she never tells anyone off

    The first of my theme reads this month This is a story of England in the mid 1950s, when rationing was coming to an end, Jazz ruled large, Elvis was first appearing on the scene though not yet in England , but the shadows of war still loomed large Our heroine , eighteen year old Penelope Wallace, lives in her crumbling old ancestral home, Milton Magna, with her rather young mother, society beauty, Talitha, and sixteen year old brother Inigo, who attends school but whose whole life is music The first of my theme reads this month This is a story of England in the mid 1950s, when rationing was coming to an end, Jazz ruled large, Elvis was first appearing on the scene though not yet in England , but the shadows of war still loomed large Our heroine , eighteen year old Penelope Wallace, lives in her crumbling old ancestral home, Milton Magna, with her rather young mother, society beauty, Talitha, and sixteen year old brother Inigo, who attends school but whose whole life is music and his guitar Penelope attends classes on literature and art history, has a part time job, and is preparing to spend some time in Italy the next year, and oh yes, she is besotted with singer Johnnie Ray At home, the family is dealing with money problems, having to maintain Milton Magna Penelope lost her father in the war, before her and her brother were even old enough to really understand it , each in their own way her mother by wanting Penelope to marry money, and her brother wanting to make it big in the music world, much to her mother s horror since that would inevitably involve him going away to America Penelope and her family are pretty eccentric themselves but her somewhat uneventful life changes when one day at the bus stop she meets Charlotte, and through her, Charlotte s aunt Clare, who s in the midst of writing her memoirs and happens to know Penelope s parents though Penelope doesn t immediately know how and cousin Harry, a budding magician, determined to win back his love Marina Hamilton.This was my first Eva Rice book and I simply loved it well, technically it was my second but the first was Who s Who by Enid Blyton, so it doesn t count as a novel Reviewers have compared this one with Nancy Mitford and with I Capture the Castle and they re right the book definitely, especially at the beginning, has a very Mitford feel about it and also feels a lot like I Capture the Castle the eccentric family, crumbling old house , but that said, it s also its own story I really enjoyed the story and all the characters, and especially the craziness and humour Each character is very individual, well drawn out, eccentric, and interesting none of your ordinary people here, and there isn t one except, may be Marina , that one doesn t like or one wouldn t mind knowing I thought Rice captures the 1950 s world and indeed, the atmosphere the feel of it really well the world of music particularly, which makes perfect sense given her background The tone remains light hearted and humorous throughout, but the book also does give one a glimpse of the issues teens of the day then had to face besides being teens that is to come to terms with a life that wasn t in the midst of war I guess the strangest thing about your generation is that you grew up with war as your normality and though the war s over and there s a new found freedom, it s shadows and impacts still remain with them, and aren t something that can simply be shaken off And Rice manages to do this without losing that light hearted tone Of course, I loved all the literary allusions and references from Blyton she of course, had to be there to Hardy, and Scott Fitzgerald as I usually do And I would be remiss if I didn t mention the illustrations the little illustrations, not of characters but things that appear in the book a taxi, a teapot and cup, weather vane, and such there is a human or two but not, as such, specific characters in the book, and these I thought were really cute and great fun as well This was a perfect beginning for my June theme reads, one I really enjoyed I definitely want to be readingof her books
