"There are many good reasons to read Dodie Smith's I Capture the Castle: it provides excellent advice about dressing on a budget (dye all your clothes sea-green); how to cope when the man you love falls for your elder sister (keep a diary) and your stepmother dances naked in the rain (ditto). Given that most teenagers believe their parents to be mad - and vice versa - the novel also serves as a helpful guide to recognising the fine line between eccentricity and outright insanity" ( Guardian)
"A book for anyone who is young, poor, fed up and yearning for something exciting to happen" ( Irish Times)
"When I read I Capture the Castle it immediately became one of my favourite novels of all time, and I was very annoyed that nobody had told me about it before" (J.K Rowling)
"Unputdownable and loved by teenagers and adults everywhere." ( Observer)
"Everyone I've passed it on to has found it a hit - it works every time, for absolutely everybody" (Nigella Lawson)

Description du livre Thomas Dunne Books, United States, 2003. Paperback. État : New. Reissue. 208 x 137 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Now a major motion picture from the Academy Award-winning producer of Shakespeare in Love I Capture the Castle tells the story of seventeen-year-old Cassandra and her family, who live in not-so-genteel poverty in a ramshackle old English castle. Here she strives, over six turbulent months, to hone her writing skills. She fills three notebooks with sharply funny yet poignant entries. Her journals candidly chronicle the great changes that take place within the castle s walls, and her own first descent into love. By the time she pens her final entry, she has captured the castle --and the heart of the reader--in one of literature s most enchanting entertainments. N° de réf. du libraire AAS9780312316167
