One thought on “A Letter for Maureen

  1. Karen (Kew)

    I loved reading this bittersweet comedy It had me laughing out loud several times I have become fond of Maureen since reading about her in Maureen goes to Venice This is written in a witty and funny manner, but there is also a surprise twist to this tale which adds depth to the story Maureen is not just a comic character but one that I have come to feel a great deal of sympathy and affection for.

    I liked this book hence the 4 stars I have to admit that this isn t my normal choice of reading material at all and I had only picked it because I wanted something light and fluffy to read before I start on a much heavier tome It was certainly light and fluffy, it had me laughing out loud once or twice, and it also had pathos I would hate to run into Maureen she would be given a very wide bearth from me but she is growing on me as a character and I can see her developing very nicely hopefully Jo [...]

    Maureen s back Run away Hide anything she might break But this time, that might include your heart.I m already a big fan of the character Maureen thanks to her previous two stories, and A Letter for Maureen is of the same high standard The difference is that alongside the expected comedy, there s some pathos as we get a glimpse of Maureen s past Jonathan Hill s writing skills prove up to the challenge of combining two different styles without diluting either one The genuine sadness and tragedy i [...]

  4. David Haynes

    Having read Maureen s other two adventures it felt very much like catching up with an old friend again For me, Maureen has always been about comedy and there are certainly a plethora of comic moments within the story The whole theatre experience, including the pre performance meal and its consequences were the highlight for me and gave me a good laugh The author is very adept at adding little nuggets of comedy in just the right places to bring about a laugh My eye are only two words but used in [...]

    This is the third time we ve met Jonathan Hill s monstrous Maureen and the second time she has had a novella all to herself With the best of intentions she leaves chaos in her wake One or two of the incidents in this book were a little over the top she needs to be eye wateringly ridiculous without being unbelievable For me, Maureen works best when you can really see it happening she s at her most cringeworthy when you wonder if it could happen to you This book starts off full to bursting with ty [...]

    Another wonderful adventure about Maureen from Jonathan Hill I particularly enjoyed the account of the Library Book Club meeting, chaired by the indomitable Maureen We meet Nigel the librarian, desperate to catch people breaking the rules, Winston the book club bore don t they all have one , and a suspiciously familiar young man with red hair who spends his time observing Maureen and taking copious notes During the meeting Maureen tries to pass off shop mince pies as her own baking and the earli [...]

    Maureen, I did feel sorry for you and your bumbling ways in this short story based around some major parts of your life friendship, marriage, trust, and love Your heart is in the right place, bless you, and we have seen you at your most vulnerable here Keep going Maureen, I want to hear about your life You make me laugh, smile, cringe, and unfortunately you remind me a little of me The story itself unfolds in a great way going back and forth over a period of 5 years in my opinion this suited th [...]

    It s a rare occasion that I m sucked so into a book that I discard everything else that I m reading but A Letter for Maureen had this effect.It was the first time is chanced upon Maureen an extremely comical character who always manages to get herself into difficult situations Her inner voice is wonderfully written, and any reader will almost have certainly come across a number of Maureen s in their time.Several moments in this novelette had me laughing away, and I raced through the book to find [...]

    What can I say about A Letter for Maureen After Maureen Goes to Venice, I was expecting a story full of calamity, just what Maureen does best The author, however, does something very different here, he weaves the usual Maureen comedy with a much darker, caring tale.We see into Maureen s past and how she copes with a very sad turn of events in her present The first story in the series is a fantastic tale, but Jonathan has opened up about his main lead with this story and given her some heart She [...]

    Jonathan Hill in the form of Maureen does not fail to entertain In this third encounter with the ever calamity prone Maureen, her softer, human side comes through and once again we are laughing with her rather than at her The first scene in the nursing home is a gem.The end is an interesting, sobering twist.Enjoyable, fun, cringe worthy Although I still hanker slightly for the less sensitive Maureen from the first encounter, I ll always happily read of her adventures.

    Outre le plaisir de retrouver Maureen, cette nouvelle la r v le sous un nouveau jour et donne vraiment envie de la retrouver dans un plus long format La narration est plus fluide et plus nuanc e que dans la nouvelle pr c dente Maureen goes to Venice tout en conservant la douce folie du personnage Un vrai petit bonheur de lecture.

  12. Michael Brookes

    This was far from my usual type of read and I like it when I come across something excellent that I wouldn t normally read Like most good comedies the story contains some bittersweet moments.Maureen is a bumbling character, a comedic character to begin with, but by the end she had matured greatly Funny and moving this is a great read.

  13. Lindsay

    Bittersweet storyMaureen is part of the book club and becomes friends with Beryl there, through the story we learn of her and back story.A lovely story but painful too

  14. Lisa

    Maureen is a large and clumsy although well meaning lady who literally blunders through life In this story we see her unwitting mishaps in her local book club with a few well chosen digs at librarians and the effect of Kindles on them , a local nursing home and a West End theatre Maureen later discovers a dreadful truth about someone close to her heart which in an odd way, brings closure to losing them and releases her for the future.I liked this book as Maureen is an amusing character if also b [...]

    I must admit that for about 75% of this book I thought what am I reading forgive me but it was about a horrible woman and old people doing stupid things But I carried on it s very short and the ending moved me I generally get annoyed at bungling japes Mr Bean springs to mind and I hate that but I can admit that I enjoyed this storyt sure I could read another one though
