About this deal

This facility allows the wealthy to enter a cryonic suspension until such time as technology and medicine have advanced sufficiently to awaken them again.

It follows the same pattern as the short stories and I had the sneaky feeling throughout that I had read these plots before.

Written in 1948 and made into a popular film the same year, Just William's Luck is the only novel Richmal Crompton wrote featuring her famous hero. He has been described by some as a seer for his ability to tell us not only where we are but where we might be heading.

I think William works best as short vignettes and the longer story felt like a mishmash of those and didn't quite hold together. The cover may have some limited signs of wear but the pages are clean, intact and the spine remains undamaged. Soon the gang have planned a midnight haunting to scare off old monkey face from the big house on the hill - after all, where else will they find a home for the happy young couple?

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Meanwhile, William is in the old barn with Henry and Douglas, in a make-believe game of 'The Knights of the Round Table', when Ginger arrives on a fabulous bicycle. After a series of unlikely adventures, the boys serendipitously foil a gang of fur-coat smugglers, and receive a reward from the police. William becomes a veritable Don Juan as he woos a visiting film star for his brother (much to the surprise and annoyance of his brother's girlfriend).

William Brown, leader of his gang, "The Outlaws", while exploring/playing in a " haunted house", stumble across a gang of fur thieves.

Crompton's fiction centres around family and social life, dwelling on the constraints that they place on individuals while also nurturing them.

It had quite a different tone to it from the short story collections, almost to the point of feeling like a Famous Five novel in places. That futuristic cover, the blurb mentioning cryogenics; this is all about man’s wish to extend life into the future, perhaps to avoid death at all. William Brown and the Outlaws decide to start righting wrongs and organise the Knights of the Square Table (or Gnites of the Square Tabel).

The story came to life after the release of feature film of the same name, loosely based on the books.In their quest to earn enough money to become tramps, they stop at no amount of do-gooding, embarking on a plan to marry off their older brothers. I have loved writing and talking about books online for the last seven or so years and that passion has been growing to the point where I wondered if I shouldn't look to make it my job rather than just my hobby. We are aware that there are films on the site that were added when the criteria for the inclusion of locations was very different from today and, as a result, there may be scenes missing from some productions.
