5.0 out of 5 stars A Little Of What You Fancy, 16 July 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Little of What You Fancy (Hardcover)
This book is the fifth and last book in the series about the Larkins (Darling Buds of May). There is a six or seven year gap from the fourth book. The story is about Pop, he as had an heart attack and is bed ridden for a while. He cannot indulge in his favourite things in life, eating, drinking and of course the thing that goes on between two people. All this effects him, badly. There is a nurse who comes to look after him as Ma is worn out. This nurse is one of the old school, under her control Pop is not allowed to do anything. Ma thinks that food and drink are the things that Pop needs to 'mend'. In the end Ma cannot take this nurse no more and they end up having words, then Pop gets so annoyed with the nurse and he gets angry, which Ma thinks that is what Pop needs, but unfortunately Pop suffers another heart attack. This time after Ma had been talking with Angela Snow, it was Angela who brought in in a young seductive nurse. Of course the new nurse does help Pop to the road of recovery, but he is still suffering from depression. After a while Pop is allowed out of bed and to walk around the bedroom and go to the bathroom on his own. But during all the time that Pop is layed up Edith Pilchester had not been to see him, so Ma gets in touch with her and arranges for a visit. It was during that visit that there is a discussion of the proposed tunnel from England to France. (All this is in the early seventies.) The road to the tunnel is going to go through the Larkins home. That's not on for Ma and Pop, and it's this that gives Pop the 'medicine' to recover. As to what happens, buy the book and the other four, best relaxing read you can get and have a good laugh.
