Dark, grimly funny novella 2 décembre 2003
Par Cynthia S. Froning - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Great Granny Webster is a short, pointed look at three generations of eccentric, damaged women from the point of view of their descendant, a young girl. The portraits of the rigid, determinedly unhappy Great Granny Webster, her flighty, insane daughter, and the outwardly frivolous but suicidal granddaughter are classic black comedy, amusing and depressing together. The women dominate the story; the men are either dead (the narrator's father), absent (her brother), or ineffectual (her grandfather). The book is short, but the characters are affecting and vividly portrayed.

"A behind-the-scenes look at a wacky aristocratic family" 31 août 2004
Par William T. Keith - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Blackwood was the heir to the Guinness beer fortune, and she was quite the bohemian rebelling against her wealthy family. Great Granny Webster is a partly autobiographical novel and a behind-the-scenes look at a great, wacky aristocratic family.

Caroline Blackwood was brilliant 6 novembre 2012
Par JAK - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I finally got around to this after reading CORRIGAN and I concluded that Caroline Blackwood was an absolutely brilliant writer.She is overshadowed by her life and died way too young but this sharp , concise novel is a gem.Great Granny Webster is a monster of a kind that many will not be able to relate to or even believe in .A rich hair shirt shrew who never met a pleasure she could deny or pervert.I do suspect that if you don't know the territory this may seem , unbelievable .It is all too true.Nothing can beat the description of Granny sitting around all day in discomfort waiting for a bad meal and non conversation and feeling , let's face it , quite proud of herself while she sneers at lesser mortals .Everything should be most proper !What's it about--Great Granny Webster--glorious Victorian Monster.They're gone now , more or less and unfortunately that's not entirely good.
Poor little rich girl and her weird relatives 19 février 2014

Caroline Blackwood recounts her unloved childhood, living for a time after an illness, with her stiff necked great grandmother who put up with no nonsense from anyone including her hapless 8 year old great grandaughter. It was an experience she never forgot and she entertains her readers greatly with her tales.
Good weekend read 8 février 2014

I am surprised there aren't more reviews of this book. It holds your interest beginning to end, and is short, well written, and easily read.

Unlike another reviewer who finds the Granny character almost unreal or hard to believe, I think the cold, stoic woman might seem disturbingly too familiar to anyone from a strictly Irish/Anglo Catholic/Christian background. Granny is peculiar, but does not seem fictional.

In fact, the author does such an excellent job in depicting her that I might have guessed, had I not known, that the book is autobiographical in nature.

Another interesting character is Granny Webster's adult, fun loving, grandiose grand daughter, Lavinia, who avoids Granny like the plague. By being everything Great Granny is not, the author poignantly wonders whether Lavinia is tragically over-reacting to some inner terror that she is more like her Granny than her conscience will allow?

Since I enjoyed this book, I am now starting "The Stepdaughter," another book by the same author, Caroline Blackwood.
