About Me

Having reviewed over 1100 books on this blog, I have now written one myself. Motherdarling is a story about a search for a missing Will which reveals long-hidden family secrets. It is available on Kindle through Amazon. Read it and find out whether this critic can write. I live in Canterbury, England. I lived for more than thirty years in Bedford. Having retired from teaching; I became a research student at the University of Bedfordshire researching into Liminality. I achieved my PhD in 2019. I am now properly retired. I love reading! I enjoy in particular fiction (mostly great and classic fiction although I also enjoy whodunnits), biography, history and smart thinking. Follow me on twitter: @daja57

"The Boys' Book of Survival" by Guy Campbell

This is part of the series The Boys' Book, the Girls' book, Mum's book etc

It contains a mixture of advice from serious (How to Light a Fire, How to Wade through Water) to facetious (How to Survive a Family Christmas, How to Survive your Teachers). The tone throughout is mildly amusing as are the pictures.

Not quite as exciting as the Shackleton survival story I read just before!!!

April 2009, 127 pages
