I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith
Rate this book
Clear rating

I cannot praise this book highly enough. It's almost as good as Jane Austen. Cassandra is one of the best heroines I've met, and her predicaments are either heartbreaking or hilarious. This should be required reading.

Dodie Smith is one of those underrated authors, and she deserves a Pulitzer Prize, if she hasn't already gotten one. (I don't think she has - that's why she's underrated.) Cassandra, Rose, Topaz, Simon, Neil, Mrs. Cotton, and everyone else in this incredible book are people you wish you could actually live with.

Either you're laughing out loud while you read, or you're crying. And sometimes both. This is an indescribable book.
