I finished cranford...it ended up being quite enjoyable. No romantic plot at all unfortunately. But it was very nice and proper. Turns out Elizabeth Gaskell was a bit of a feminist & she wanted to provide a record for how the english gentility lived day-to-day. There were lots of essays out at the time claiming how women without a husband were unnecessary and could never live in harmony with other spinsters/widows....she prooved them wrong! Girl power:)
A nice look back, but not much action, so let's give it ***.
I've just started Boy - Roald Dahl's autobiography....man that guy knows how to put pen to paper, hey?
