This review is from: Lucky Jim (Essential Penguin) (Paperback)
I first read this book when it was first published, in the early 1950s when I thought it was a very perceptive funny book. My second reading, 60 years later was extremely disappointing. The style was laboured, the plot creaked, and few characters came to life. I had chosen it for our book group and it was one of the least successful. Not a book that has withstood the test of time well.
