What I love about Swallows and Amazons is the freedom the children take for granted. It was a different world.
I loved the war against Captain Flint alias Uncle Jim.
I would listen to this audiobook again. It is a fascinating take on the roles played by beer, wine, liquor, coffee, tea, and cola in the development of civilization, religion, politics, imperialism, colonialism, and just about any other ism you want to name.
If you like history told as a story, this is the book for you.
Cat, Dog, Postmisstress
My favorite is Boom Boom Craycroft. Who hasn't known a woman like that?
My favorite is Mrs. Murphy. Why? I can imagine a cat with that attitude. Imagine her? I had a cat just like her!
I love this series in spite of the slightly corny gimmick of the cats and dog that can understand their humans and react in a terrifically human way. Don't we all wish it were true?
