Book Description

30 Nov 2006

'Teetotal!' Ma said. 'It's a libel. He'll never live it down. He'll never be able to hold his head up again. Whatever will people think? What's he going to say when anybody asks him to have one?'

' "No," ' said Dr Conner.

'You'll have to strap him down,' Ma said. 'You'll have to put the handcuffs on.'

And so after a mild heart-attack - caused by rather too much of what you fancy - Pop Larkin finds himself off the booze, off the good food and off the good life generally, much to his own and everyone's else's horror and upset.

And while Ma tries to find ways around 'doctor's orders', young Primrose is finding her own way round a rather flustered - not to say flushed - Mr Candy .

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Larkin Classic 1 July 2007
By DavyA TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
Another fantastic Larkin tale (this being the last of the "Pop Larkin Chronicles). The whole series of Larkins / Darling Buds stories are a must & this one is no exception. This one differs the most from the TV adaptation but is probably richer for it - Mr Candy the vicar & the blossoming Primrose's relationship is on the rise, under the watchful eye of Ma Larkin.
Although this is, at times, the most sombre of all the Larkin tales (to say why might spoil the read !), it still has all the essential Larkin ingredients - family, friends, bawdy high jinks & a touch of sauce - brilliant in every way.

5.0 out of 5 stars The end of an era 9 Aug 2014
By TimM
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Bates returns to basics, socially inept male seduced by teenage daughter, an interfering Man from The Ministry, but adds a new dimension with Pop laid low by illness. An entertaining and appropriate way to end the Larkin era.

Wasn't expecting this story line as I have enjoyed the TV series. But as usual a good read and the larkins deal with life in their usal manner.
