Mistress Masham's ReposeRe re re read 15 05 2020oh this one never disappoints It s on the all time favorite list now that s a retty impressive feat for a children s novel This one doesn t deserve to be merely for children though I reckon I ll still be re re re re re re reading this when I m 97 It s dazzlingly clever has a bespectacled marmite eyed very faulty heroine is just ridiculous enough to make a deep Kiss Me, Katie! / Hug Me, Holly! (Harlequin Duets, piece of academia a rollicking read for th bairns I loveth That is allrevious review This should be a Classic A Children s Classic erhaps but it certainly wouldn t hurt the Adults It s Brilliant and besides it s full of Lilliputians and High Adventure And because I dislike receiving book recommendations I ll just stick it hereRead itI started this year with an awful case of THE READING SLUMP mostly because I was under a lot of stress The only two books I could find on my shelf with little darkness and a happy ending were The Reluctant Godfather and this un I m feeling much better now and these books are artly to blameWe read to see the world We read to see other worlds Boos break our hearts and books heal our heartbreak But sometimes we just need books with really truly happy endings My thoughtful mother remembering how much I loved The Once and Future King A Bride to Honor picked this up for me at a used bookstore I just grabbed it randomly off my bookshelf and I don t know how it is yet but it smells heavenly musty old cloth boundaper smell Mmmmmm Maria is an orphan the heir to a huge estate but with very little money for the upkeep She is cared for by a governess and the local vicar but sometimes left to her own devices One day she discovers a fabulous secret descendants of kidnapped Lilliputians are living on an island in a lake on the estate Maria s interactions with these diminutive Honeymoon with a Handsome Stranger people form the bulk of the story She makes mistakes but later redeems them And when Maria herself is in danger the Lilliputians come to her rescue Excellent characterization with wonderful tongue in cheek humor Recommended I liked this don t get me wrong But it s a flawed story and while I enjoyed it I found myself skipping or rolling my eyes at chunksIt reads like an elderlyrofessor telling a story to a favoured niecenephew and for all I know it was It doesn t read like something intended for The Man from Shadow Valley publication it s bitty weirdlyaced very episodic has sporadic digressions into fairly dry subjects and asides and then finishes up with a rush of an action adventure ending as though the author suddenly noticed said niecenephew falling asleepThe One Forgotten Night pace is slow theeople mostly cariacatures outside the two Flirting with the Doc of Her Dreams protagonists It s a dry sort of book and the disparity between Maria and the Professor s styles as the story switches between theirovs is a little disconcerting David Walliams Collection (3 Books) particularly when neither of them really listens to or understands the other After Gulliver let the story slip a ship s captain returned to Lilliput and kidnapped a chest full of Lilliputians to display inublic They escaped and two hundred eyars later are discovered by Maria and orphan whose guardians have evil designs on her But with all that I enjoyed it and read straight through in one afternoon THERE ARE SPOILERS AHEAD SO BEWARE25 are spoilers ahead so beware25 I m started this book I thought it had such Hired by MR Right promise The first sentences drew me right in and filled me with the giddy excitement of a bibliophile who thinks they ve found a literary treasure Maria was ten years old She had dark hair in twoigtails and brown eyes the color of marmite but shiny She wore spectacles for the time being though sine would not have to wear them always and her nature was a loving one She was one of those tough and friendly The Man, The Ring, The Wedding people who do things first and think about them afterward Unfortunately she was an orphan which made her difficulties complicated than they were with othereople She lived in an enormous house in the wilds of Northamptonshire which was about four times larger than the Buckingham Palace but was falling down The illustrations are GORGEOUS Unfortunately my interest began to wane right around age 50 or so when the Schoolmaster began describing the People s history of how they came to Mistress Masham s Repose at Malplauet The chapter following the People s history lesson begins Maria could not help feeling relieved when the History was over Her head was buzzing with capital letters and she secretly thought that it as fun to ask uestions instead of listening to lectures The story steadily grows ridiculous and hard to follow as time goes on There were a lot of references to England s history that I just didn t understand since I m from the United States Maybe I would have enjoyed the story better if I had understood the references but I doubt it The Professor was an interesting character His forgetfulness and inability to take things seriously was aggravating Every once in a while he would give Maria good advice but most of the time he was bogged down with figuring out the meaning bogged down with figuring out the meaning an obscure Latin word Tripharium or daydreaming about food I read on Wikipedia JK Rowling loosely based Dumbledore off the Professor s character I m glad she did a much better job creating a like able characterAs the story rogresses both Maria and the Professor daydream about the People Maria dreams of roviding them a safe "place to live and all the ways she can make their lives better The Professor "to live and all the ways she can make their lives better The Professor up a scheme of capturing a Brobdingnagian which made absolutely no sense to me In retrospect it might have behooved me to read Gulliver s Travels I just have no desire to do so at this time The ending felt a bit rushed and the additional characters of the Lord Lieutenant and PC Dumbledum were utterly ridiculous I felt like the story became almost farcical and left me wondering why I had forced myself to continue reading in the first lace I was so excited about. She saw first a suare opening about eight inches wide in the lowest stepfinally she saw that there was a walnut shell or half one outside the nearest doorshe went to look at the shell but looked with the greatest astonishment There was a baby in itSo ten year old Maria orphaned mistress of Malplauet discovers the secret of her deterio. The ossibilities of this book and hate that my expectations fell flatMy review is brutal so I apologize in advance to all of those who adore Mistress Masham s Repose Other reviewers do a great job of Alien Terror (Mindwarp, pointing out the good in this book I just wanted to shed some light on my disappointment and why this book didn t win myraises A sweet charming story that I found in a used bookshop I read it when I was a little girl and it was fun to read again It s about a little girl who stumbles on the Caught in Her Room people of Lilliput from Gulliver s Travels who have migrated from their home when Gulliver took a few of them to England They re the ones that are only a few inches tall I must say that out of all the characters the Professor is my favorite His reasoning and advice is hysterical I love it It s a really sweet story and I m happy to have my own copy now uotable uotesFor one thing there was theroblem of taking steps One step of hers would have covered about

turns up you are immediately confronted with a moralroblem For instance if you were to find yourself in the unusual Kurt Kanunu position of Alice in Wonderland who was able to make herself large or

face it and to make it happen and to go through with it rather than to keep it hanging over one s headThey had not enough imagination to believe in six incheople If you have mentioned Gulliver s Travels to them they would have said Oh that s a children s book isn t itI do feel hungry however much I thinkNow Mrs Noakes if you will kindly look the other way for just one moment I will extract

obstacles which we should overlook were tedious to Lilliput Gravelaths seem bouldered beaches which might turn an ankle in their desert strips The long grass was a jungle of tripping roots They moved
