The Uncommon Reader

OMG I read a book! Yes, indeedy, I did.

A Christmas present from my mum, I’d wishlisted it over at Amazon and lo it did arrive.

Alan Bennett is very much of the Stephen Fry ilk, only different, and pretty much a British national treasure. He also seems to have an affection for the women characters he writes about which is apparently a remarkable trait for a man.

I loved reading this book and it has much to recommend it. It’s a slight volume so it won’t take but a moment to consume. Possessed of a rye gentle humour the book brings surprising insight into the life of a modern day monarch.
