My Own Story

by Emmeline Pankhurst

What a woman! A massive personality radiates from every page. The book makes you realise what these women went through and how brave they were - just after the Victorian period when they were treated like dolls (or terribly mistreated). Mrs P was also clearly an autocrat. She glosses over some things, but it is a great read.

The Ashiel Mystery

by Mrs Charles Bryce

Well-written and gripping - at least for the first half. Lots of interesting stuff. Unfortunately it decays into unbelievable secret passages and suchlike. Hello, Enid Blyton and the Famous Five! The killer is a surprise, but somehow unsatisfying as a solution, and the very long explanations of everything at the end are boring.

The Rome Express

by Arthur Griffiths

Lively,well-written and interesting - until the last few pages, when it becomes silly and rushed. It\'s one of those where you feel that the author suddenly realised he\'d written nearly the number of words required and scribbled down a quick ending.
