The culmination of style and intellect makes for one of the most entertaining adventure books you could hope to read. I've always been a big fan of British comedy and this book has carried my appreciation yet further. It's modern and carries us on an Adventure into our own country as seen through the eyes of a well-educated, charming, young English businessman. His character and appeal is not A typical and his observations of American culture are extremely enjoyable.
There are four main stories, each story follows in chronological order and explains his rise in our society. He starts off exploring America on holiday and soon embraces the American ideals of business. It's not long before he's entangled with the New York Mob, which is one of the funniest of all the adventurer's and explains the cover (horses head). The story peaks when he meets the Great, Great, Great Granddaughter of William Shakespeare (the legendary English playwright) only to discover she's one of us.
The book is very British and shows the inner working of the beautiful English class system at its best. It is accessible to all intellects but also very clever, by far one of the cleverest exerts is a description of the their class structure given to a businessman in Chicago. I will read this book again, and again. Let's hope we have some more from this very talented writer.
Would also be a good Xmas/birthday present!
