about

THE BOTTOMS succeeded to Hell Row. Hell Row was a block of thatched, bulging cottages that stood by the brookside on Greenhill Lane. There lived the colliers who worked in the little gin-pits two fields away. The brook ran under the alder trees, scarcely soiled by these small mines, whose coal was drawn to the surface by donkeys that plodded wearily in a circle round a gin. And all over the countryside were these same pits, some of which had been worked in the time of Charles II, the few colliers and the donkeys burrowing down like ants into the earth, making queer mounds and little black places among the corn-fields and the meadows

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not my cup of tea I had to read this for school and I didn't enjoy it. Since it was for a 20th century literature course I assume that it was an important work in its time but I don't understand why it has so much hype. The themes and plot didn't feel original or appeal to me. Maybe the topic was intriguing and made it a classic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant Novel This is really a fantastic novel. The relationships between the mother and the sons are portrayed very well. The scene where the son buys an umbrella for his mother, and the description of how she carries it proudly around with her is especially well done.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ok This was ok but I'm not sure why it's considered such a great novel. Maybe in it's period it was important or groundbreaking.
