5.0 out of 5 stars Everyday life of an ordinary person, 17 Sept. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Diary of a Nobody (Kindle Edition)
Mr Pooter is keeping a diary. It records his life with his wife Carrie, their son Lupin and friends Mr Cummings and Mr Gowing. Mr Pooter is a hard working clerk in the office of a firm whose business is unspecified. He is a good man with firm principles who makes bad jokes and takes offence at small things at times. The picture the reader gets of his life is vivid and every reader will find it possible to identify with at least some of the events.

Mr Pooter does not get on with his son and occasionally falls out with his wife and his servant. When not at work he potters around at home or meets friends. There are impromptu social events - some successful some not. He is concerned about the company his son is mixing with and is worried about the influence Mrs James has on his wife especially when she causes her to write on slate blue paper with white ink and take part in séances. Above all Mr Pooter is loyal to his employer and prides himself on doing a good job. He is a model citizen and a good father and husband. Even after more than twenty years of marriage he and Carrie are obviously still happy even if Carrie sometimes spends all evening reading and doesn't talk to him.

The book is a classic and I loved reading it and it's one of those books I shall re-read regularly. I thoroughly recommend it.
