Maidenhead? And sharing AF with one's children.
August 12th, 11:59
Apologies if this has been discussed before but I can't find any references. I'm reading AF aloud to my daughters, 11 and 9. I was worried they'd find the novels too esoteric and wordy, but so far the novels have been a surprising - and very gratifying - hit with both, to the extent the 11-year-old told me she couldn't sleep for thinking about Lawrie and Tim. I think I'll skip Thuggery, Attic Term (too much Catholic and lerv stuff)and prob RAH, as not great, but am very much looking forward to the next two school books. Has anyone else shared AF with the next generation?

Reading aloud also helping me notice things I missed during countless childhood rereads and during the read through two years ago.

On which note, in chapter one of Falconer's Nicola says they were bombed in Hampstead during the war, had to move to Maidenhead and only moved back at half term. To paraphrase Nicola's pov on this: 'Maidenhead's all right, it has the river, but it's not London."

This would mean that they moved in the middle of the summer term of the twins' third form, yes? Which means in Autumn Term, the half term interlude, which I took to be in Hampstead (I haven't got my copy to hand to check) was actually in Maidenhead?

Can anyone explain?

14th-Jul-2016 06:05 pm - Marlow moments.
Anyone else have brief moments of excited recognition when you hear or see something that you recognise from the Marlowverse? I had one this morning when Sarah Cox on the radio referred to that 'old Victorian phrase - Never apologise, never explain,' and I thought 'that's what Lawrie said to Nicola before the Cricket Match', and my drive to work was considerably brightened up.
Nicola and Lawrie didn't know who famously said it, but hoped it might be Churchill, as I remember.
