On May 16m 1846, I said: "Read some in The Stars Look Down. Rather good:mines in England." On May 18 I said: "I'm plowing right along in 'Stars look Down.' It's very fast-moving now and I like it better than I ever did. It is, in a way, a social sermon." On May 19 I said: "Finished tonight Cronin's 'Stars Look Down.' Abrupt ending. Cronin's quite a writer." ( )

well, another rather lengthy novel that captured my attention, but sort of let me down at the end. I learned an awful lot about coal mining in England in the WWI era and what a dangerous and thankless job it is. But, I felt that the multiple story threads that kept intersecting here and there were going to culminate in a more interesting end that what i got.....but then again, how often that happens in my own world. And like always, there are at least 10 other Cronins on the shelf.....time will tell..... ( )

Era ancora scuro quando Marta si svegliò, e il freddo era crudo. Il vento s'ingolfava gelido nelle crepe dei muri della casupola di due soli vani. Si udiva, lontano, il rantolo delle onde. Il resto era silenzio.
