Peter's Room is a book by British children's author Antonia Forest, published in 1961. It is the fifth instalment of the modern Marlow series, between End of Term and The Thuggery Affair. Unlike the school stories for which Forest is best known, Peter's Room is set entirely at (or near) the family's home.

Antonia Forest's later books are notable for their use of a technique perhaps taken to its extreme in Richmal Crompton's 1965 story William and the Pop Singers: placing of characters who were created in an earlier age, and still seem essentially tied to that past time, in a very different world several decades later. So the same characters who initially recount their childhood experiences of the London Blitz eventually watch Up Pompeii! and, later still, make themselves up as punks, when they are only a few years older.

I agree that this book is not up to Antonia Forest's usual standard. Run Away Home also has a plot, unlike most of her books. But the other books don't need a unified plot, because their strength is in the characters. All of Antonia Forest's characters are utterly real, so much so that it is nearly impossible to think of their having been created by anyone

Talk about Peter's Room


Awene
The Marlows are on break from school, and during a stormy and uneventful time, they make up a fantasy world inspired by the fantasy world the Brontes made up as young adults. The action happens in the top floor of an old barn that Peter has sequestered and made his own, and as they act out and get involved in portions of their fantasy world, their real-life stories converge.

Aside from all the character development and the changes to the story that happen in this Marlow book, it is a really interesting look at the dynamics of an intense fantasy life, and the wonderful bonding experiences it can create as well as the negatives that happen when it is carried too far and becomes indistinguishable from real life.

Read this in proper order in the series if you can, because some of the character developments might surprise you if you read it out of order.

Peter's Room is an unusual book in terms of the wider Marlowe saga. The story centers around Nicola, Lawrie, Ginty and Patrick as they spend a school holiday inventing a kind of Dungeons and Dragons fantasy adventure, inspired by Ginty's interest in the Bronte sisters.

The title gets its name from a room in an out-house on the Marlowe estate, which was used by their elder brother as a kind of hide-out. As usual the dynamism of teenage friendships is well handled, with Forest's ear for dialog and eye for detail very much in evidence. However, the strucutre of the story is a new departure for Forest, as she includes the children's fantasy story in excerpts, interwoven with later chapters of the book. This is innovative but if, like me, you dislike fantasy-style novels you end up racing past these sections (or skipping them entirely) in an effort to get back to the main plot.

Overall, this is up to the standard of previous books in the series but sadly, due to my skipping large chunks, I felt as if I had only got half a paperback for my money.
