The Wind in the Willows

Rrounding the upper parts of the River Thames He was educated at St Edward's in Oxford but instead of going on to Oxford University he joined the Bank of England where he rose to become Secretary He wrote several books including The Golden Age and Dream Days which includes the short story 'The Reluctant Dragon' later made into a Disney movie Kenneth Grahame developed the character of Toad in. This is one of those books I want to love I REALLY really want to love this book I ve read so many essays by book lovers who have fond childhood memories of being read this by their father or who ushered in spring each year by taking this book to a grassy field and reading this in the first warm breezes of May I want to find the tea and boating and wooded English countryside to be slow yet sonoriously comforting like a Bach cello suite or a warm cup of cider on a cool April night But I just find it tediously boring I ve tried it three times and after about twelve pages I sigh put it down and pick up something else Perhaps my father needed to have read it to me when I was young
