Welcome to the 84 Charing Cross Road Revisited Guestbook
|Message||Watching film on TV as I write. It made me want to find out who these people were and what happened to the bookshop so I am therefore very grateful for this page, thank you and well done! Will definitely go and visit 84 Charing Cross even though it is now a Macdonalds. Well I did not know Michael Foot stopped it from being knocked down either. I think you are wonderful to keep this site going and updated and hope more information might come forward about those who worked in the bookshop. Maybe my history student son could put this on his list for research !!!!|
This is the most touching story I have ever read.Everyone in the story is so kind-hearted, simple, vivid and real. A bosom friend afar brings a distant land near. They step into mutual lives gradually for the mutual trust, though they have never seen each other. In today's era of "Farway, So Close."，20 years' concern and friendship is so precious. Thank you for sharing such a warm story with us. To read the letters here is just like being face-to-face. Although HH and FPD have never seen each other eventually, I still believe they are in mutual hearts all the time , never be away.
|Message||I read the book about two months ago and deeply touched by the story, by the lovely people. I even cried at the bookstore where I read the book. I am not a sentimental man but I feel there is something that catches me, keeps telling me ........|
And at the last page of that book (Chinese version) , your website is there, I just think that I should tell you how much I thank you for all the great things you have done. Thank you!
There is a Chinese movie, which tells a story of two lovers, they letter to the other, through the 84 Charingcrossroad bookstore, me, and my girlfriend watched that movie together, that's the first movie we have watched together.
Above are two sentences of Chinese poem.
Hahahahah, thank you.

|Message||Paul Foot again....I meant to thank the people who operate this website. It's lovely to read all the letters from folks around the world. Helene and "Frankie" will be long remembered in our household.|
Thanks to UltraGuest et al....
And thanks to Michael Foot, my namesake, who I believe, helped prevent 84 from being pulled down all those years back.
|Message||I just picked up a copy of '84' in a second-hand bookshop (appropriately),and I'm reading it with great enjoyment. I remember seeing the Hopkins/Bancroft movie many years ago, and now I can't wait to see it all over again, (when I finish the book). Hope I can find a DVD of it.|
My wife has just nabbed the book and has started reading it, and as I am only half way through it at present, there is going to be all "hell to pay", as Helene would have put it!
|Message||this is very innovative book, I just finish reading this book today. thank you.|
