Comments The Londoners

  • Kirsty

    This seems to be something of a Marmite book, judging by the reviews, and I am firmly in the dislike camp. I was expecting great things here, but felt sorely disappointed. The novel is such a slow starter, and the characters did not interest me at all to warrant trudging through the rest of it. I purchased this book for my Kindle, so I may well come back to it in future, but I doubt I'll try for quite some time.


  • Sue

    I haven't read anything by this author before and I was pleasantly surprised. At the start I thought it may be a 'bland' read but once into the story it was far from it and very believable. I felt I got to know all the characters and was one of the people living in Magnolia Square. I'm now going to get straight into the next book in the trilogy.


  • Janet Panter

    When I started reading this book I didn't really empathise with many of the characters and by the end of it still couldn't remember who they all were - a list of characters and their relationships to one another at the front of the book would have been a help. I suppose I probably will read the other books in the trilogy at some point although I think I can already guess what is going to happen.


  • Katie

    I really enjoyed this book. It was very slow to start and there were loads of characters I am sure I still am a bit clueless about. However that didn't seem to matter and I look forward to the next one.


  • Magdalena Szotek

    Its a very interesting insight into 30. and 40. of the XXth century, from a non-typical perspective - showing you what people were actually like. Not an ideal one happy family.Yet supportive and helpful when least expected.Its a chance to get to know London better - from architectural and sociological perspective.Definitely recommended.


  • Loretta

    Kate Voight, whose English mother died when she was a toddler, lives with her father in the East End of London, As war wraps its darkness around the world and Kate's German father is interned, she finds many of her neighbours are quick to turn against her. Shunned, lonely, and isolated she takes a young, black, injured seaman in, as a lodger.Contains some sex and swearing.


  • Elise Darcy

    I do enjoy family sagas and although this story initially started off quite slow the pace pickedup with the start of the war and became quite an impelling story about prejudice and thehardships people faced at that time.


  • Pat Langhelt

    Good read and all the places where we went to when we lived down south.
