"I Capture The Castle"



Do you know that feeling when you're reading a book that you cannot wait to sit down with at the end of the day? That's how I'm feeling about Dodie Smith's book "I Capture The Castle." I absolutely adore the way the narrator, a young 17-year old Cassandra, voices the story. Her witty sense of humor has me laughing out loud at times.

Anyone else read it?

(And, I know there's a film adaptation of the book, which I will gladly be watching once I am done with the book.)

Love that book! She's such an engaging writer and the story is kind of quirky and unusual. I think I'll put it on my re-read list for this year...

I will have to try this one.

I love books in which the narrator speaks specifically to me.

Thanks so much for the reference. I can't even tell you how many books I have picked up and started...only to be annoyed after the first chapter or two and never finish it. Please bless this one is as good for me as it seems it is for you! Love ya mama! Happy reading!

Apparently that is a very popular book...I am currently #7 in line for it at the local library. So...I will wait.

Yes- glad you liked it too Colleen! I think you and me have the same taste in books. :)

Carlye- I hope you like it too. Though, I will say that it took me a little to get into the book.
