Ivy Reviews

Just a quick post to point you in the direction of various reviews of Manservant and Maidservant. Only a few of us read it, but there's still a nice variety of opinions already - everything from a new convert to someone who'll never read a word of Ivy Compton-Burnett again. Anyway, here you are - go and have a look-see...


  1. I am halfway through it and have very mixed feelings. I will post my review soon!

  2. Thanks for the link Simon. I'd love to do another group read. Bookheaper and I were thinking of doing a joint posting on the Greengage Summer by Rumer Godden. Have you read it? If we do a group read would you be interested? The thing is the book doesn't seem to be readily available. Only second hand copies.

  3. I did read it a couple of years ago, actually, so might be able to scrape back into my memory!

  4. p.s. aren't group reads fun? Cornflower does one every month, though I usually don't manage to join in.

  5. Simon - great that you can join the Greengage read! I'll post about it soon and see who else would like to join.


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment - my favourite part of blogging is reading your comments!

Annoyingly, Blogger often messes up with comments... try refreshing, or commenting Anonymously (add your name in, though!) or using Firefox/Chrome instead of Internet Explorer. (Ctrl+c your comment first!)

Failing everything, email me: simondavidthomas[at] - or just email me anyway :)
