Brilliant series

Best of the series, so far. Great use of metaphor! Character descriptions that even pale Dickens. I love the Larkins and so wish they really existed! I would seek them out. Such down to earth, life-loving folks they are. They truly know and hold love, happiness, contentment, and joy in their hearts.

When the Green Woods Laugh

I love a bit of nostalgia and this fitted the bill oh so comfortably. I have previously watched the television series, so have the people's faces brought vividly to mind and it was `perfick` to have it read by Philip Frank's (Charlie). Can`t recommend it highly enough.

Delightfully relaxing

H.E. Bates is the great rural storyteller. His Larkin novels evoke a countryside that is at once restful and nostalgic. Pop is a loveable rogue of a man who just wants everyone he loves to have fun. These stories are fun to listen to. Beautifully read. My only criticism is that they are far too short!
