Sometimes Chips, as he is affectionately known, is an old man who dreams by the fire; then he's a difficult young taskmaster schooling his students, or a middle-aged man encountering the lovely Katherine, whose "new woman" opinions work far-reaching changes in him. As succeeding generations of boys march onward through Chips' mind, Hilton's narrative remains masterful. He seamlessly interweaves a poignant love story with the jokes and eccentricities of English public school life, while also chronicling a new, uncertain world full of conflict and upheaval that extends far beyond the turrets of Brookfield.

Turned out I was partiality right. I loved it, but not completely. Because it was little boring for my taste. Although it was boring, I liked the character of Mr. It was so vivid and complete. His character development was gradual. And that was good. I liked his sense of humour and thoughts. I liked his chapters with Katherine.
Those were the best. And last few chapters r "Brookfield will never forget his lovableness. And last few chapters related to war were also good. Except for them, I couldn't enjoy much of the novel.
His death scene literally made my eyes wet. Maybe because I got emotionally attached with him as I had been reading this novel for almost six months. Oh, I forgot to tell you.
I read it as a course-book. Not by my will. I could read this before my class. But I didn't. I didn't want to. My English professor did an excellent job in explaining this novel. It is also one the reasons I loved this. Also don't know whether I should recommend this. It just depends upon your taste. View all 8 comments. A very familiar title,but one I never read till today.
It is a quick,easy read,the story of a popular,likeable school teacher. He is unusual for his longevity in the job. His is an unspectacular life. He does his best,as the years pass. He finds a way to make himself useful,even when some view him as too old. A beautifully written book,simple yet engaging. View all 9 comments. Rating: 4. Chipping, nearing ninety and still telling his hoary old jokes from sixty years ago to the newbies at Brookfields school, spends his last few days on earth wandering among the many well-furnished rooms in his head.
We see the events of his entire career as a schoolmaster, his brief, brilliant career as a husband, and his long, glorious sunset as a School Institution.

Goodbye, Mr. Chips
When you are getting on in years but not ill, of course , you get very sleepy at times, and the hours seem to pass like lazy cattle moving across a landscape. It was like that for Chips as the autumn term progressed and the days shortened till it was actually dark enough to light the gas before call-over. For Chips, like some old sea captain, still measured time by the signals of the past; and well he might, for he lived at Mrs. Wickett's, just across the road from the School.
