This is an excellent book about an English school teacher in the early 1930's. Mr. Chips is an endearing character whom you bond with on an intellectual level. He is beloved by his charges. Well worth the read!

Hilton does a great job of capturing Mr. Chips' wandering mind as he remembers bits of his life at its end. The writing style is very endearing, but the contents are sad! We don't want this beloved man to die though we just met. Life has enough sadness and heartbreak without shedding tears for a fictional gentleman, but that is precisely what happens when reading this book. I do recommended this book, but only with a handy tissue and not at all if you need cheering up. A bittersweet read.
