On the whole an enjoyable read, but I do have a couple of issues with the author – Summer Cooper. Now Summer, I don’t know how old you are – I can’t find a photo of you easily – but you don’t sound from what you say about yourself to be ‘elderly’, so I am going to assume that you are under 50. Do correct me if I’m wrong!
But your writing about characters has certainly got the wrong generation feel about those older than 50. So here are some examples I pulled out of this box set.
(Loc 8760) Mrs Mallory was portrayed as ‘small, bent, with silvery-white hair in a loose bun and ‘for an elderly lady was active, fun-loving’. She was 70! Really – this is a portrait of a women of 70 from 70 years back. I am nearly 70 and whilst I’ll admit to the white hair (dyed though to a better and fashionable gray) and so are my friends, none of us are bent or in any other than form than fun loving – always! We also object to being characterised as being elderly. We are in late Middle Age please.
Why should anyone worry about a 70 year old woman cooking? And for a family? We all do that. All the time. And many of my friends are also minding their young grand-children at that.
And then (Loc 10894) we have someone ‘getting on in years, but he still considered himself young and spry. He wasn’t (my bold and caps) EVEN IN HIS SIXTIES yet, and he was retired’. Seriously. Getting on in years? I’ll admit that about myself in another 10 years. I certainly didn’t feel that in any way when 50.
Finally, ‘I’m not exactly young anymore, you know. I’ll be hitting 30 SOON‘. (Loc 13513). Now the only time you should worry about being getting older to have a child, these days, is when you are 40. If you are looking to have children in your 20s then you are VERY young. mid thirties is more the norm.
My final gripe with this book (Loc 4760) you should n feed bread to either ducks or turtle. They lack the enzymes to break down the nutrients and this is therefore the worst thing you can do to enable them to eat poorly.
So. I have given this book a 3 stars because of its ageism and its not being environmentally responsible to wildlife.
