Review: The Black Gloves

The Black Gloves The Black Gloves by Constance Little
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

My first read by the Little sisters and what a delightful one it turned out to be (though it boggles the mind that a family will continue to stay in a house where not only is a body discovered but also frequent intruders in the dark). Very-very keen to read more books by them.


First Line: it was my father who persuaded us to go back to the old homestead for the summer.

  1. Glad you like the Littles as well. Only read three of their books so far, but enjoyed them all. Very funny work.

    1. You are lucky indeed to have read three of their works. And good to know that their books are uniformly funny.

      Wishing you a Merry Christmas

  2. Oh, this does sound like fun, Neeru. Glad you enjoyed it.

    1. Thanks Margot. It was real fun.

      Wishing you a Merry Christmas.
