I think this book speaks to a lot of us because it talks about a universal subject, and I'm sure that's why it has become a classic and has survived through time. And those who can’t make sense of the change have no other ways of coping but to find a new place of their own.

The writing was so beautiful and vivid I felt that I knew these people and I felt their joys and pains. It was in this mood that I began to browse for novels that deal with the theme of remembrance and the inevitable sense of loss that comes with it.Merddyn Gruffydd, the preacher who is loved by Angharad, helps Huw recover from his illness, and is supportive of the Morgans. It began with just a reminiscence of my colleagues, many of whom became dear friends of mine in the course of the last decade. Somewhere near the midpoint the book started to fade for me and I grew lost as family members left home, found spouses, fought their own battles. One of my absolute favourites of the assigned novels I (as mentioned above) had to read for school, and yes, I am indeed very much personally pleased and tickled pink that my January/February 2019 perusal of How Green Was My Valley has stood the proverbial test of time for me and has been indeed in every fashion just as magical a reading experience this time around, for I was certainly more than a bit worried that I might not enjoy either Richard Llewellyn's prose style or the information he presents as much as I had as a teenager (but fortunately and gloriously, I need not have been worried, for How Green Was My Valley has indeed been a simply wonderful rereading experience for me, so much so that I will gladly give a five star rating, and yes, that said five star ranking pertains to both when I perused How Green Was My Valley as a teenager and now). I have come up here to tell you what I do think of you all, because I have heard you are talking against my husband.

I found the book absorbing as well, and thought it did both the personal/family aspects and the broader social issues well. Mining is a way of life here, and there is pride in the skill of the work and in the role Wales plays in Britain's growing power. The story is set around the Morgan family in a Welsh mining town and told by the narrator protagonist, the older Huw Morgan, as he took a long walk down the memory lane before he starts to leave his hometown for a new life abroad. Directed by John Ford, How Green Was My Valley was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry.O mahkeme sahnesinde diğer tüm katılımcılarla birlikte ben de oradaydım ve nefesimi tutup yargıçın dudağından dökülecekleri bekledim. I also hated Gruffydd for not fighting for Angharad, if he had trusted her and had faith in her (and himself) he could have saved them both from a soulless existence, instead they both ended up depressed and lonely.

But when Huw courageously but very rudely told off the deacons on the spot, Mr Gryffud pulled him aside and spoke of how important it is for a small town to hold on to moral values the only way they knew how. Llewellyn wrote 3 more novels that act as sequels to Huw’s stories, but user reviews on Goodreads are saying that they are nowhere near as evocative as How Green Was My Valley, which might explain why none of them is available as an ebook. One by one, his brothers began to leave Wales, a sign of shrinking opportunities for young people in the country.I found Huw's parents quite irritating, Gwilym was so self righteous and Beth was so backwards, I guess that was realistic though for the time. I felt like I had been very patiently waiting for the author to set the stage and give me all of the background and let me get to know the characters. It aches because I long to be apart of something so perfect and wish for such beauty in everything I experience.
