The Barretts of Wimpole Street

by Rudolf Besier

Grade: To Own

Awesome little play. I promptly added it to my list of books that make me very interested in historical characters. And my list of wanted books.

I wished there was more, though. I liked all the brothers, but they only appeared as a huge set of men all together. Except the one who stuttered. But they had interesting names and everything! Septimus, Octavius, ... well, those were the only really interesting names, but still!

And her father was creepy. I'm glad to read on Wikipedia that E.B.B. was actually very religious, because in this book, the only person portrayed as being particularly religious is her creepy father.
