  • By Patricia Syner on March 31, 2002

    This intriguing story takes place in England in the early twentieth century. This book was about a man who devoted his life to making his son's life a success. So many deep intellectual questions are asked, but not necessarily answered about life, marriage,love, career and relationships between father and son, husband and wife, and life in general. Definetly food for thought. He wanted his son to be more than just a worker. He wanted him to be someone special. This story has a surprise and delightful ending.

    I read this book because I came upon the DVD (which I now own) in the library. His writing is superb, and lyrical at times.An intelligent, hardworking single dad who deals with all that life throws at him head on in a selfless way. One who loves his son unconditionally. A dad (or mom) a lot of us wish we had had.

    Sorrel and Son was a book I read when I was 30yrs. old and now I am 71 yrs. of age. That book helped me to be close to my only child daughter from her young age. That was an example how a parent could be a confidant to a child. That way I developed a bond between my daughter and myself. Today for her and for me the best friend we have is each other. Indeed the book which was purchased from you came in good condition. Again I wanted to read it but could not find it anywhere except in your book store. I am glad you preserved such a valuable book for me to purchase it. I can give my opinion to all parents who read this to purchase this novel and follow and example to your children so that you can become the best friends of your children. It was invaluable to me when I was young. I thank Warwick Deepani for creating those characters which could be so close to our lives. May he rest in peace. I love him as an author. I purchased this book through from worldofbooksusa.

    When I first began to read Sorrell and Son, I was prepared not to like the main characters because I felt that the excessive pride and snobbery was beyond that which I, a born American, was able to tolerate.However, when Sorrell bows his neck to fate and takes the job of porter at a somewhat disreputable inn owned and run by a horrible sadistic woman in order to be able to make a living for his son, I was hooked.Neither adversity nor hard-work is able to defeat Sorrell. His and his son's "job" is the preparation of Kit for a successful life. Nothing is too demeaning for Sorrell if it will help further the "job." Slowly but surely, Sorrell begins to be smiled upon by the gods and his situation in life improves until he is quite well-off and is able to send Kit to excellent schools and the obtain a Tutor who prepares him for University after Kit has decided that he wants to become a surgeon.The son, Christopher, could well have become a spoiled self-serving little prig, but he did not. Instead, he grows up to be a strongly principled, intelligent, caring man. My, what a lucky boy he is to have a father like Sorrell, and, Sorrell, my, what lucky man he is to have a son like Kit! Even the fleshy, self-indulgent mother's reappearance with her Circe's charms to offer Kit after an absence of ten years is not enough to tempt him away from his "pater."As a result of Sorrell's later success in life, Kit is not required to scrabble about hungrily trying to make a living while studying medicine and yet his physical ease neither softens him nor makes him any less intent on succeeding at the "job."The ending, albeit a tear-jerker, is not in the slightest bit maudlin. Sorrell maintains his unflappable dignity until the very end.

    This is a book to read over and again. The central theme has its Horatio Alger aspect in Sorrell's climb from adversity (failed marriage,underemployment), to affluence and success, through the combined forces of hard work and professionalism with a good dash of luck.The secondary story is Sorrell's wonderful relationship with his son, and his strong but tender rearing and overseeing his of education in school and in life.This book is a first rate read and a must addition to your library.

    Simply an outstanding story! An excellent book! Honor, duty, loyalty, beauty and truth - We could well use this book as a guideline for the values needed both now and into the 21st Century.
