What did you love best about Castles in the Air?
I am about to finish this book, and am tempted to start right back at the beginning again. If you've ever dreamed of restoring a ruinous old manor house and making it your home, this is the book for you. A true story, warts and all, written in a strong voice with intelligent dry wit. Highly recommend.
Very well done. This is a story of an old house (and I mean old) in Wales, and the restoration of it. The struggles, joys and experiences of the people restoring the house as well as the story of the house, including the unearthed skeleton, and incumbent ghost. Please note it is not a ghost story, outside of the standard ghost that come with any old castle.
I actually found it to short, when it ended I found myself wanting it continue and hear more for I know there had to have been more to tell. That is honestly the reason it doesn't have 5 stars.
Well written, interesting and highly entertaining book. It is full of descriptions and stories - some horrifying and many amusing. The book did not inspire me to take up castle renovations (rather the reverse!) but definitely left me wanting to know what had happened since the end of the book. A great armchair read. The excellent narrator added to the enjoyment. I will certainly be recommending this book to my friends. (It would also be great fun to book a night in one of the guest rooms!)
