Pure Escapist Reading
The action alternates between Ludlow (very near to where I live) and London. Catherine Alliott’s descriptions were wonderful. I ‘felt’ the clean, fresh country air which contrasted with the noise, smells and hustle and bustle of London. One ‘felt’ freeing, the other stifling. I much preferred the Ludlow location.
The book had many humorous moments that kept me chortling. It was easy to empathise with many of the situations creating the humour, as the book was written in the first person. Grown up children, horrified at some of their mother’s antics, had me in stitches!
Family and good friends are important. They contrasted sharply with some less than honest characters.
Animals are important in our lives. I loved their inclusion in the story and how they were viewed as an integral part of the family.
The small town, warm and welcoming feel of Ludlow was easy to recognise, having visited there many times. I really ‘felt’ included in the book.
About Last Night is a wonderful, light hearted read for anyone fancying a few hours of pure escapism.
I received this book for free. A favourable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.
