A 1950s Childhood
Average rating
3.4 / 5
Was mainly groups of lists - boring
March 2nd, 2015
The limited narrative was somewhat interesting. However, most of each chapter was alphabeticall listings of topics (eg. TV shows). As the book is about Britain, much of the material is unfamiliar to a Canadian.
