The Cazalet Chronicles

To anyone unfamiliar with Elizabeth Jane Howard's work, the Cazalet Chronicles are wonderful books with which to begin, despite having been written quite late in her career. They follow the Cazlet family from 1938 until after the war has ended and to some extent are auto biographical. Her characterizations of the family members and her diaglogue for the children in the story are particularly accomplished and one is left enitrely convinced that these are real people and not just the producrt of the author's imagination. The awful Neville is my favourite - well, one of them anyway. The thing about these books is that they involve the reader/listener utterly and completely and one no sooner finishes one than one rushes on to the next to find out how things have turned out. Jill Balcon reads and interprets the boofks brilliantly: I cannot imagine anyone doing it better. Buy this series! If you love good, well crafted literature, you won't regret it!
