I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith has been on my shelf for longer than I can remember. I think I have brought it to the beach on multiple occasions and never read it. So, this year I tackled it. Many people have told me they loved it. It was certainly slow to start and very old-fashioned feeling. However, in the end, I did enjoy the story. Would I put it on the list of my top reads? No, but it was good.
