Customer Review

on 26 May 2010
This is the first book I've read by Evelyn Waugh, after borrowing it from a friend at work and I wasn't disappointed. It's a thoroughly engaging read and to top it off, it's riotously funny.

I loved the public school humour in the first part of the book, and it reminded me of John Cleese in Clockwise from time to time. The characters are fantastic, although it is sometimes a little tricky to keep track of who everybody is from time to time, due to the fact they are known by their surnames throughout the book.

On the negative side, the book sometimes failed to hold my concentration towards the end, especially in part 3, when the story becomes a bit more sensible, but saying that, this book is laced with subtle humour and filled with little twists and turns that keep the reader entertained for the mostpart. I would highly recommend it.
