The Hundred and One Dalmatians - Dodie Smith

I shouldn't think even millionaires could eat anything nicer than new bread and real butter and honey for tea.

 

Dodie Smith

 

Though she began her career as a playwright, Dodie Smith (born May 3, 1896) is best known for two books. Her memoir, I Capture the Castle, and a novel, The Hundred and One Dalmations, inspired by her nine (!) dalmations.

I Capture the Castle - Dodie Smith

I really, really like Dodie Smith's writing style. This isn't a book with a lot of action and adventure, but the narrative was great and it kept me interested. I thought the book could have been formatted better, though, to remind readers that it's a journal. All of the characters were well-written, in my opinion. I did not expect the small plot twist at the end and was content with the ending.

I wasn't sure how i felt about her situation with her love interest at first, but after thinking about it a bit, i decided i was okay with it.

(I'm not feeling very eloquent today.)

Reading progress update: DNF at page 115
I Capture the Castle - Dodie Smith

So I´m pretty much bored by this book and skimmed throught the rest of it (and even the ending is meh). Just not my kind of book. DNF at page 115.

I Capture the Castle - Dodie Smith

Loved this charming, whimsical, and strangely sad coming of age novel set in 1930s England. Blogged about it here.
