Review: I Capture the Castle

I Capture the Castle - Dodie Smith

Reread this, only my second time and many years removed from the first. If possible, I loved it more this time around. The perfect tribute, not only to all the Austen and Bronte I devoured as a kid, but to the kind of kid who devours Austen and Bronte. I Capture the Castle manages to be both the escapist novel about falling in love while living in a castle -- and a more nuanced story about trying too hard to make your life into that novel.
