2.0 out of 5 stars A THIRD CLASS DEGREE, 3 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Late Scholar (Lord Peter Wimsey and Harriet Vane series Book 4) (Kindle Edition)
After Paton Walsh's two previous successful Wimseys based on Sayers fragments, which I thought good and have re-read with pleasure, this was a real come down. The plot was bizarre without being comic. The whole thing felt written without the attention to period style and accuracy I would have expected. A number of obvious errors such as reference to Miss Lydgate's hairpins when it was Miss de Vine whose hairpins wandered, and the gross error of the enquiry after Lord St George when Peter Wimsey could not have become duke without his death seemed ridiculous coming from so historically informed and astute a person - errors appearing within the space of a couple of pages, seemed to me to betray a lack of real commitment on the part of the author.

When an author dies ,and someone else writes instead ,it can never be the same,as you said two of them were good but the third one not good at all,personally I prefer to just read the original books,that also includes Agatha Christie books and also other authors too who who have died......

I had no problem with the Lord St George moment as it was raised by one of the Senior Common Room and simply highlighted how cloistered a life they led
