Format: Paperback
One gets instantly carried away by the superb use of vocabulary that conjures up imagery of days gone by, when the aristocracy set the standard and oikes knew their place. A wonderful comedy that evokes the wonderful mores prevalent at the time in British high society, that will have you chuckling and turning pages, until the all too soon climax, which will leave you wanting to know of the further exploits of the major. A truly superb read !

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By HCameron on 20 July 2001
Format: Paperback
This is an hilarious book, written at a superb pace. From page one, you are laughing at The Major and his totally wonderful view of himself and how he thinks he can win a game of golf (which he has never played) against an expert, in his pursuit of an excellent prize (rich lady).

When he goes to St Andrews and meets the ghostly Cardinal, everything takes an unexpected turn. The atmosphere, the characters and the social comment are brilliant. I will read it again.

with a clever foreword from Hugh Laurie. It's very funny, slick and fast moving. Unusual to have a narrator who is so dislikeable, but all the more entertaining for it.

Format: Paperback
Anyone who enjoys the humour of P.G. Wodehouse should find this book a real treat. It predates "Plums" classics but is very much in the same quirky style as his approach to humour - I wonder if Wodehouse was influenced by Marshall?

The ultimate stereotypes unmasked 31 Aug 2000
By Ron Beck - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Here is a brilliant bit of parody and humor centered around a golf match. For us Americans who don't fully understand the British class system and arrogance, here is the book to fully explain it (not to mention unmasking a bit of male chauvanism)
