I finished The Boy in the Dress - what a fabulous book. Laura - I'd recommend it. :)

 

Moving on to my December bookworms choice now - The Flower Boy by Karen Roberts.

Finished my 40th (and final) book of 2008 today - 1066 And All That by W C Stellar and R J Yeatman.

 

That's 10 more than 2007 and 20 more than 2006!

What did you think of 1066 and All That, Janet? I have it on my TBR pile. Being non-English, am I likely to get the humour of it, do you think?

I was trying to write a review yesterday but it wasn't coming out very well!

 

I don't want to put you off (and it's quite a thin book so hopefully I won't) but I think I might have enjoyed it more if I'd read it when I was 16.

 

I say this for two reasons - 1. the humour is rather 'schoolboy' in style and also a bit dated now (the book was first published in 1930) and 2. my memory for school history is not sufficient for me to have enjoyed some of the references - and history was my favourite subject at school!

 

I have to say I was pretty disappointed with it. It had some gems but for me, they were few and far between and I'd probably only rate it 5/10.

 

(Sorry!)

Don't apologise! I appreciate the honest review. I think I'll definitely have problems with it then, but I'll have a crack anyway! :lol:
