This is for all three parts.
An excellent book by Macdonald. It's a story of a girl (Adela Cathcart) who has sunk into a deep state of lethargy. Her uncle (the narrator) is there to visit over Christmas and devises a plan to make her enjoy life again. This plan is to get some of the local people together and have them tell stories.
It's almost just a story to string together all the short stories and a few poems and songs. The stories are excellent but I felt that the characters were left somewhat hollow due to the fact that little of the book actually deals with them and their interactions.
This is a real page turner even though it is hard to follow at first because of the authors use of "pirate lingo", He later abandons that altogether making for an entertaining story of the high seas and and era long since past. Well worth reading.
This was a fantastic book that will impart Barnum's wisdom in a simple way so everyone can understand. Even though it was written over 100 years ago, the principles he explains are still very relevant. I was so happy to have found it!
4-stars. Very good. Hard to put it down. Could of had a little more explanation. The ending reminded me of a Hitchcock movie!
