I am very far behind indeed with adding my book reviews to my blog. I got a bit discouraged, then New Zealand went out of Lockdown, so I have been away on holiday.
& then I got sick. Not Coronavirus thank heavens, but until today I didn’t feel like doing much. So let’s see how I get on!
A Damsel in Distress by P.G. Wodehouse
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
You would think being in a country where Lockdown has been taken very seriously indeed that an avid reader such as myself would be losing themselves in a mountain of books! Not so, I have found it very difficult to concentrate on anything that isn’t a beloved reread.
Thank heavens this book entered my life.
Honesty compels me to admit it isn’t quite perfect. Far too many characters were introduced at the start and I had trouble figuring out who were the important ones. But once the love story of George and Maud kicks off, it does so with a bang and every few pages had me giving a chuckle – and chuckles are hard to come by in these Coronavirus filled times.
Two tramps of supernatural exuberance called at the cottage shortly after breakfast to ask George, whom they had never even consulted about their marriages, to help support their wives and children.
