    This is the first book by Stanley Middleton that I have read it won’t be the last Having finished it I did a litttle research to see what the world thinks of the author and was very pleased to find that my initial thoughts mirrored what most critics write of himI found Sterner Stuff delightful although it seems that nothing much actually happens The beauty of the book for me and I am surprised to learn that apparently this is uite old fashioned is the way that as I was reading and noticing that the plot wasn’t moving on very uickly I really didn’t mind as it was so well written The economy of language excellent grammar and the uality of the conversations between the characters led to my not wanting to put the book down until I’d got to the end of a chapter I’m guessing that as there are so few reviews not many people have read Mr Middletons novels It’s a shame because he really is very good and worth picking up
