This is a charming memoir from the author of 84, Charing Cross Road, which you should read before and perhaps instead of this book. Hanff's voice is wonderful and I gave 84, a book of her letters, 5 stars. This one is also very good, but has the feel of watching someone else's vacation slides. She's still an excellent narrator, but when she writes about specific places and people in London she starts to lose me. The story of how she went about educating herself with books from the library when she couldn't afford college is inspiring and humbling.
