Customer Review

VINE VOICEon April 26, 2005
Cold Comfort Farm is a genuinely funny modern classic. Orphaned at 20 and with only £100 a year, Flora Poste kindly offers herself out to a collection of relatives and thus finds herself at Cold Comfort Farm - and there have always been Starkadders at Cold Comfort Farm! What follows is Flora's attempt to 'civilize' the inhabitants of the farm and organise their lives in a series of entertaining events. If Flora admires Jane Austen, there is certainly a touch of Emma Woodhouse about Flora! The ending is absolutely classic, and although we never find out what Ada Doom saw in the woodshed that was so nasty, or the wrong done to Robert Poste, Flora's father, or indeed if the goat survived, perhaps the imagination is best served by these remaining bizarre mysteries! The book and its varied inhabitants will stay with you long after you have finished reading it!
