This review is from: Care of Wooden Floors (Hardcover)
Witty and full of twists.
There really is no need to go all through the plot yet again for every review !
A brilliant book. I don't think "comic" is the best word for it, though. It is actually very thought-provoking and, in its way, serious. It could be called "A study of modern urban life as reflected in the effort devoted to the care of wooden floors".
One wonders why the narrator is so much at war with the cleaner, when he is only trying to clean the floor, and presumably cleaning the floor is HER job . Yet we have all found ourselves in this position, tidying up the room before the chambermaid arrives.
I think there is a flaw in the plot which Hercule Poirot would notice, but presumably that is all part of the fun.
