  • Novel: The Little House by Philippa Gregory
    the Tudor fashion trends of French hoods and farthingale skirts with contemporary clothing choices of leggings waxed jackets and Wellington boots but both The Other Boleyn Girl and The Little House essentially make a similar comment about the institution of the family In both stories there are certain self centred and power hungry family members who are not afraid to exploit and control one another all in the supposed name of protecting or enhancing the family s fortunes Families are not always filled with sickly sweet candy floss moments cuddly hugging and breathless giggles but instead families are shown to be constantly in a tussle scuffle and strained tug of war for power What makes The Little House a genius creation is that Gregory shows this overzealous desire to dominate others in the family achieved through subtle and sneaky little acts which are far more disturbing than overt and direct displays of a domineering attitude It is the steady accumulation of quietly menacing scenarios which is the best thing about this novel The terrific shocking ending will completely remould the readers attitudes and feelings about specific characters which have been developed throughout the course of the novel Top marks for Philippa Gregory s The Little House which is a complex sinister and suspenseful novel The various characters feelings of obsession egotism jealousy and resentment will definitely leave readers hooked with this well constructed and clever story About Liz Cookman Liz is a thoroughly London centric writer and a recent addition to the Litro Online team She is passionate about creative non fiction and waffles on a lot about London and the River Wandle a total river bore She holds a BA in Creative Writing and is studying for an MA in Travel and Nature Writing from Bath Spa University Mail More Posts 6 Comments comments Prev Money Sport the Big Show Ring Lardner s Baseball Stories Next E Pluribus eBooks Related Posts The Quiddity of Will Self by Sam Mills Tracey Cox s Literary Problem Page Book Review S by Doug Dorst and JJ Abrams Litro TV Recent Posts Bringing Up Baby In the Night Time Before the Sun Rises at the Gate Theatre True Love in Los Angeles A R BY ANY OTHER NAME The Echo Travelling in Fiji The Litro Blog View Archive 11th February 2016 Litro 149 The Love issue Letter from the Editor By Eric Akoto Love we spend our lives craving it in one form or another searching for it and talking about it Its meaning is felt more than it is clearly expressed Some call it the greatest virtue Continue reading 9th December 2015 Litro 148 The Going Home issue Letter from the Editor By Eric Akoto This month in Litro 148 we explore the notion of what Going Home means to us Is it a familiar physical space A refuge A feeling A state of mind Or is home actually to be found in another human being maybe your partner your parents How
