  • By Margaret Southgate on 17 February 2013

    I have already got all the books on Margaret Catchpole but decided to get one on my kindle. I really really wish someone would make this into a television drama, instead of the same old Dickens stories. As good as they are they get a bit repetative.This is a fantastic story just waiting to be dramatised.

    A traditional Victorian read, especially when you know the area that it relates to.

    Such a gentle book to read, moving at a pace we can no longer enjoy or even imagine in this 21st century. It reminded me of much of Thomas Hardy's books with the same appraisal of a country lifestyle long past.

    All my life people have asked me if am related to the horse thief Margaret Catchpole who was deported to Australia. I decided to read the story for myself and try to form my own opinion of this woman. I chose this version of the story written by Richard Cobbald and was dissapointed initially with the plain cover and small print and I found the numerous typos etc. a bit off putting. But after reading the inside of the front cover explaining that the book has been copied from a very old version and to get a perfect one would cost the reader/purchaser a lot of money, I forgot about all that; and although I am only half way through the book I find the story well written and colourful and I simply can't put it down now.

    Very interesting for me as I am one of her descendants. It helped to build a better picture of her. I don't think other people that are not related to her would find it so interesting.
