They Knew Mr. Knight | Dorothy Whipple
post image

This quote made me think of a story my mom told me, about her aunt having a permanent wave (with one of these machines!) She was so thrilled with it, she couldn‘t stop brushing her hair, until she‘d brushed out all the wave. Maybe that would have worked for Freda.

I enjoyed the book, but all I can say is, not one character was better off for having known Mr. Knight. 😏

A bit slow going for me, but I ultimately really liked this #PersephoneClub selection.

Whipple has created some wonderful, fully-rounded characters, many of whom aren't particularly sympathetic for lots of the book. The plot seems entirely plausible to me and it's a fascinating and insightful insider sort of look into the rise (and fall) of a “grasping“ family*.

I'd love an entire book about Carrie, please!

quietjenn *it might not be fair to characterize them all as grasping, as it's mostly Thomas and Freda. But, everyone else is pretty complacent and willing to go along and Whipple is all about shared responsibility. 2mo
jlhammar Yes, Carrie was great, wasn‘t she? 2mo

rubyslippersreads @jlhammar I liked the way that Thomas and Edward sort of changed places, and Edward‘s new, happy life was due to Carrie. 1mo

I didn‘t love this one, a low pick for me. I didn‘t feel much sympathy for anyone besides Ruth, Carrie and, to a lesser extent, Mrs Knight. I guess it was a good illustration of the dangers, both practical and moral, of getting into debt. I was impressed, once again, by the apparent ease with which a young woman could write and publish a novel 😆

Tamra Right? Writing & publishing was a snap! 2mo
LeahBergen Hang on a mo‘ … just off to write a book. 🤣 2mo
Cathythoughts Yes , getting into debt must cause terrible stresses and consequences . Sorry this one wasn‘t for you. I did enjoy it. X (edited) 2mo

A reread for me. I did start reading , then watched the movie on YouTube which was brilliant. I‘ve dipped in and out sinse… I don‘t think Dorothy Whipple could ever disappoint. I loved the characters , the villain and all ! Loved it ♥️ #PersephoneClub

andrew61 Great review, Cathy. I wasn't aware of a film , ill try and find it but inevitably doubt that seeing the characters on screen will match my imagination. Mr knight has a Cape , is twirling his moustache , and laughing maniacally as he counts his money. 2mo

My 5th whipple, + there is something comforting abt life in middle class 1920s England. Her characters are v well drawn, evoking the conflicting emotions in families as aging, trust, + ambition create the perfect soup of a novel, + of course a perfect villain.

Such a classic tale of human virtue & vice. 😇😈 It was a tad slow going in the middle, but gained momentum on the other side.

Oh, I feel Celia‘s longing for Field Place. #PersphoneClub

Dorothy Whipple is always an enjoyable read and this one was no exception. As the afterword states, it‘s a “comforting middle-class drama” but I also found it quite suspenseful due to the titular villain, Mr. Knight. It had the feel of a 1930s Rosamunde Pilcher, if that makes sense? 😆

What did you think, #PersephoneClub ?

CarolynM I‘m finding it a bit hard to get into. Probably more about me than the book. 2mo
Cathythoughts I did really love it, and got totally caught up in the story. This would be a reread for me. But I confess to watching the film and then slacking off on the reread … I‘m dipping in and out ❤️ and Yes , definitely suspenseful due to Mr Knight ! (edited) 2mo

daena I‘m moving slow, because life. But enjoying it nonetheless. Very intrigued by Mr.Knight, and even more so now by his villany! 2mo
Tamra I‘m still in the middle and enjoying it. She fleshes out her characters well and there is a bit of a snarky undertone I appreciate. It isn‘t an entirely a cozy domestic novel. 2mo

LeahBergen @Cathythoughts I‘m looking forward to setting some time aside to check out the film! 2mo
LeahBergen @andrew61 Yes! Her characters really are so well-drawn. 2mo
LeahBergen @daena My life‘s been a bit intrusive into my reading time lately, too. 😆 2mo
LeahBergen @Tamra It‘s a tad cozy in setting but I felt dread from the beginning. 😆 2mo

LeahBergen @andrew61 That‘s so true, Andrew. And there‘s also a touch of sadness in how much Celia is willing to sacrifice to ensure that Freda enjoys her youth, isn‘t there? 2mo
andrew61 @LeahBergen, yes, freda is a bit of a madam. But I loved Ruth and Douglas. 2mo
Tamra @LeahBergen @andrew61 aligns with Celia‘s rumination how the youthful pursuit of self is subsumed by real life once children enter the picture. 2mo

This book has been a lovely companion to me on our small holiday.. it‘s described as “ comforting but not cosy “.. great characters.. this one has echoes of From A Distance. The protagonists are the Blake family & I felt that I moved in with them while reading this book. I wish them well & am sorry to say goodbye. A book about greed & the nasty Mr Knight… Another Dorothy Whipple for me soon I think 👍🏻❤️

I went to the mall today to get some much needed new clothes. I got frustrated because I couldn‘t find anything that fit or was the right kind of fabric. Yes having Autism has drawbacks when picking out clothes. So I went into Schuler Books and found a #Persephone for six American dollars.

A little blurb from the post script which is far more articulate than I could be.

I really liked this one, even though it was a bit of a slow burn and I knew what was going to happen as soon as Mr. Knight was introduced. But that's fine. Whipple writes well and with insight into every day domesticities and human behavior.

Gotta love #persephonebooks - they haven't let me down yet. 😃

This was one of the three Persephone Books I picked up. They were as expensive used as they are brand new off the Persephone website, but when I pointed that out to the store owner he slashed the prices by 50%.
