I think that's my favourite of all her books. (The Bridge fell a bit flat for me, too ... I hadn't read any Thornton Wilder before but, even so, I'm always glad when you push me to try someone new.)


One of my favourite Elizabeth Taylor books. I re-read it so recently I don't need to read it again now.
I have the same edition you linked to! I hope lots of people will try this one.


Oh, perfect choice. I read some of her books a long time ago (not this one), collected others, and then never went back to them. I just bought the NB bio, too.


I have turned from my computer to the bookcase I keep my special books and picked "A Game of Hide and Seek". Looking forward to re-reading this book.

Never heard of it. At first I thought E.T. the movie star had also been a novelist! I hope I can get a copy of it over here.


I found a used copy at Amazon for $0.01 --- BUT the shipping charge is $6

ah well, still a good buy and looking forward to this one

Usually the shipping charge is $3.99. I wonder why so much on this one??


I haven't been reading The Bridge but have this one on the shelves and the Nicola B so it's a must. I did enjoy The Toroise and and The Hare.


This seems like a good time to join in, if I may? The bookshelves are up in the living room and, due to pruning and moving, there is space....for more books, of course!

I ordered the one for 88 cents - since it had a cover I liked. I admit - I judge a book by its cover!

Never heard of her. This time I have been able to borrow a copy so you'll be hearing my views on this book on the 20th.
