The Lost Letters of William Woolf: The most uplifting and charming debut of the year
I enjoyed this book very much but it was enhanced by the fact that I listened to it on Audible with the great Rupert Penry-Jones doing all the voices excellently, it really brought it to life. It helped to distinguish between the characters and places, especially hearing the different accents and dialects. I think one of the great draws of the book is the idea of William’s job, wouldn’t we all love to do it?
The descriptions were lovely, I could practically feel those beautiful dark blue envelopes. The idea of the job was good in that William could get about freely. I couldn’t imagine the tweedy William in the extreme fancy dress, but was prepared to suspend my disbelief.
