    One thought on “The Small Dark Man”

    1. I read this because I inherited it from my grandmother, amoung many other books. It didn't take long, at only 304 pages with rather big words, I moved through it at quite a speed.It was a strange one, because at the start every single important character is described in great detail (and yet for some reason i found it didn't really help me visualise the characters). It was a little cumbersome, but I kept with it.By the end, I felt like I had read a very long short story, and something that could [...]

    2. This author writes great stories with vivid backdrops. Head to the Scottish Highlands and meet Hugh Forbes, a black-haired Irishman who is a swash buckler. Hugh meets Frances Mary, and discovers life and love but he also finds himself in a battle with Vivian Stark.

    3. It's really a simple matchmaking love story at heart but Maurice Walsh's scottish setting is so beautifully rendered it becomes nearly as breathtaking as the real thing (Scottish Highlands). Some gorgeous writing raises this man meets woman, falls in love, tale to another level Misunderstandings and flirtatious circlings and adventures ensue with the mountains and valleys of Scotland as the background. A popular and prolific author of his time Walsh on this evidence is well worth more perusal.

    4. I read this Book in January 2016 but still think about it now because even though it was written in 1929 certain things it spoke about such as Post Offices haven't changed much.
