The Uncommon Reader

The Uncommon Reader

by Alan Bennett

Anne Ferber (06/23/13): As I was reading the Schwalbe,..... Book Club, this book appeared as one both mother and son adored, and I was reminded how much I loved it when I read it some years ago. Since it is only 120 pages, I sat down with it again this morning and yes confirmed that Mr Bennett is truly remarkable in his ability to describe succinctly the invaluable pleasures and joys that come from reading.

Since we describe ourselves as "Women Who Like to Read", I feel certain that there are more than a few of you out there who have read it and perhaps have forgotten how wonderful and delicious (Dale) it is. The uncommon reader of the title is Elizabeth II, Queen of England, and her inadvertent wandering into the land of literature is both hilarious and admirable.

Mr. Bennett's dry British "humour" and intelligent insights have resulted in an amazing provocative primer on the value of reading and thereby broadening one's view of the world and it's individual inhabitants.
