Very funny in a gentle, old-fashioned, way
on 20 December 2013
I had the first book (Miss Buncle's book) for many years and had never managed to track down the sequel. Miss Buncle wrote her book to make some money but, not being what she called 'imaginative' used the characters in her village. The first book ends with her marrying her publisher and moving - just before the villagers come to call her to account. This sequel deals with her being afraid to write another book as she doesn't want to move again, having used people in her new situation as her characters.
The book won't appeal to anyone who likes lots of action and a thrilling storyline. Those of us who prefer to read well-written and happy stories about people we could meet anywhere, doing things we might do ourselves but with more interesting consequences, will enjoy it very much.
