I Capture the Castle - Dodie Smith Lately I'm reading this to my son at bedtime and we're both getting a lot out of it. He because it sends him off to sleep almost immediately, and me because I'd forgotten how much I enjoyed it. It's full of sparkle and wit. It's like Jane Austen but much better, seriously. I like Cassandra, the narrator, enormously. It's light, a quick read, and fun, but also real and serious in the details, in its view of life. Despite its classification as chicklit, my son does enjoy it too, as evidenced by the chuckles I get from him briefly before it knocks him out cold. =)
