Is the famous stiff upper lip his only protection? Is anyone really this naïve? The answer is a resounding YES !
My Rating: ★★★★★ (5 out of 5)
After the dystopian related reading of late this book was a very welcome diversion back to good old blighty. A lot of the books I read rely on violence, bad language and sex to entertain … Ok so there’s nothing wrong with that, but humour is another sure-fire winner.
My Barsetshire Diary is a fabulous depiction of his life as a Lord in the modern age. As the title suggests, it’s written as a diary in the first person with each day telling us a charming story of his family life. I thought this was a well written collection and Oscar the cat stole the show.
From Lord David’s approach to dieting, his eye for a bargain the collection of tales wouldn’t be out of place on a sunday afternoon on the BBC. Each of the tales come to life on the page and this book is another good reason to own a Kindle.
Thank you, your Lordship
This is another book I have read that does not fall into one of the categories for the eclectic Reading Challenge. I’m just so blasé in reading for the fun of it now.
