Reviews about Greengage Summer (Mass Market Paperback (7):
lolike
I’ve read other works of Godden’s but none as engaging as this novel set at a French hotel. It takes as its story teller a fourteen-year-old girl, not an age I might have chosen to use in my own works nor read about, yet her innocence and pertinent observation combined with an eventual growing up crisis is fascinating. Other interesting characters abound, wrapped in delicious psychological moments, all having to deal with a culminating surprise at the end.

The Greengage Summer, while written in 1960, seems to represent a lost world. Narrated by a thirteen-year-old British girl, it describes the trip her family (four children and a mother) take to a small hotel in the North of France, and the life changes that occur as a result. While definitely a coming of age novel, the sense of time and place, the descriptions of the glorious countryside, the pace and expectations, even the kind of slave like existence of poor French youth working in the hotel, all serve to remind us how much the world, travel, and class, have changed since 1960.

Rumer Godden was a highly decorated British writer, and this book is one of her most lyrical. While her descriptive powers are truly amazing, she never sacrifices plot. The riveting story has the children falling under the spell of a man who is not at all what he pretends to be. His infatuation with the protagonist's lovely sixteen-year old sister, who is coming into her own as a beautiful young woman, creates incredible tension as the story progresses.

Gorgeous and romantic, this is a book that reminds you of what really good writing should be.

Wanted a book about France.
A movie was made of this book in the 1960s with Jane Asher. It is a coming-of-age book.
Kept my interest and learned a couple of French words.
It is about an English family who vacation in the wine country, however the children are left to themselves after their mother takes ill. The father is not with them as he is at work. It is based on reality but is a work of fiction
It is very descriptive enabling you to feel you are on the trip with them.
The girls live in a hotel along with an assortment of characters-some are quite dubious. Just like real life.

Evocative, beautifully written, timeless and ageless. I did not know of this writer (shame on me) until I read a review in The Spectator and now I can't get enough of her. 'The Greengage Summer' is deceptively simply written, but will haunt you long after you've finished. Godden takes you with her to this little place in France, through the blue door in the garden, into this young girl's thoughts. A great book for writers.
Lesesshe
A beautiful coming-of-age story with some pain in the awakening to an adult world, which is reality covered over by an adolescent's romantic perspective. This is set in the French countryside with English children dropped into a small French hotel while their mother is convalescing in a hospital. The rogue in the story is charming, not without redeeming qualities, and fascinating to all the children, especially to the oldest adolescent girl, who is not liked by the woman innkeeper. It is the time of summer when the greengage plums are ripe and abundant, and a mystery about the man who has so captivated the children. It's a classic story and the best of the books written by this author.

Loved this book! Excellent writing, plot and character development. I look forward to reading all of Rumor Godden's books.

Well-written, engaging, lovely imagery, good characters - this is a lovely book. Only short but I will certainly be reading it again.
Took a little while to get here but it came from the UK so that's understandable. The book was in good condition. Read this when I was a kid, really enjoyed it and wanted to reread. There is a movie that is fairly true to the book but focuses more on the character of the older girl than the second daughter, the "narrator" of the book, and central character. I think they wanted to showcase a very young Susannah York as a sort of Lolita which is a shame. That's why the book is almost always better than the movie
