Welcome to the 84 Charing Cross Road Revisited Guestbook
|Message||It's really delightful to read the book. Mr. Jianming Chen has translated it vividly. Then I just purchased a English copy and found this website. It's surprising and touching. |
I was laughing, smiling, enjoying, thinking, imaging and so many other emotions came upon while I was reading. It's soft and warm. I do not feel pity for Helen not being able to visit the Marks & Co, Bookshop, because I know that both Helene and Frank had the most beautiful thing ever. There are someone there understanding each other, missing each other, helping each other; so that the 20 plus years did not seem boring and long, it was vivid, it was pleasant, it was wonderful. Thank you!

|Message||Thank you for maintaining and updating this site. I recently revisited my copy of the book, and also watched the film. These brought me to tears as I recall parallels during the past fifty years of my life as an Anglophile with transatlantic friends over several decades. Aside from a charming storyline the reminder is not to let "life" get in the way, preventing the long-promised visit to someone, etc. This book reminds us that life is precious and all too brief. Savor every moment, cherish every day, follow your passions and make ones dreams happen.|

|Message||A famous movie mentions this book,which attracts me to read the book.It is a touching story.Although the love is romantic,it is sad too. Sometimes,I expect that somebody can send a letter to me just like the story. Without phone, e-mail, wechat,just letter.But maybe it is just a dream.|

|Message||The first time I saw this movie in my room, I cried in the end. And then I read this book. I feel very bad about Frank's death, and Helene can't go to London to see her old friends.From New York to London, crossing the Atlantic Ocean, although they never met, they knew each other. This is not only about friendship and love, but a communication of their heart. It just like "Over the boundless crowds I am seeking my soul-mate." I hope one day I can go to London to see the "84", where Frank Doel and Helene Hanff met.|
