Story set in the 1930s. A young woman and her family inhabit a crumbling castle in the country. Her father wrote a popular book but hasn't produced anything more so they are living by selling the furniture. It's a coming of age story. ( )

didn't understand at all what her father was doing but the rest of the story was good. ( )

I read this because I felt I ought to. Within a chapter - I was drawn right into it. Lovely writing, and characters (well, at least one) you can develop a real interest in.

The final resolution didn't feel quite so satisfying - but maybe just because by then I was so close to the characters. ( )

I thoroughly enjoyed this book until the plot happened about halfway through. I did not enjoy the second half, though I still thought the narrator was (mostly) charming. ( )

I Capture the Castle - I don't know how this wonderful coming-of-age story has never crossed my radar screen before, but wow am I grateful for the online recommendations that made me pick up up now. Written post WWII but set in pre-war England, every page is steeped in nostalgia and the author's love for England bleeds through every word. Cassandra's narrative voice is magnificent as is the bucolic and unbelievable setting. The story here is secondary to the characters and the setting and Cassandra's growing realization that she is truly leaving childhood behind. I couldn't put it down once I started, and the memory of the prose gives me a warm glow even now that I'm finished. Highly recommend! ( )

This book was such a wonderful, enchanting and unpredictable read that by the end of it I felt like I almost was Cassandra, since her confessions, recordings and thoughts in her journals gave me a thorough insight into her. I also loved how the sections of the book were arranged in differently priced notebooks, which really demonstrated the progression of the story

It feels, reading it now, as if this is the story that every romantic comedy Hollywood has ever made has been trying to tell. And when we come towards the end of the book and a marriage proposal and happily-ever-after storyline seems to be in the offing, I was worried we were going to stray into that territory. But Smith is too good a writer, Cassandra too interesting a person to settle for this.

I know all about the facts of life. And I don't think much of them.
She was so scared, she forgot to be a contralto.
Topaz said she had never been on the streets and rather regretted it, which is the kind of Topazism it requires much affection to tolerate.
Contemplation seems to be about the only luxury that costs nothing.
When I read a book, I put in all the imagination I can, so that it is almost like writing the book as well as reading it—or rather, it is like living it.
