8 of 9 people found the following review helpful By DavyA TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 1 July 2007
Format: Mass Market 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.

I enjoyed the serialization of the books on television , however enjoyed the books more. This particular book was no exception, I enjoyed the atmospheric descriptions and the characters who were full of life, although at times I couldn't help picturing them as they were in the series.

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.
