One of the best and funniest books I've read in a long time. Such ridicule! I could have changed the names of so many characters for those of people I know! It had me laughing with pleasure.
I was surprise to read it had been considered "out of fashion" just after being written for surely the characters do not age and their actions are like the perennials in any garden. I can see, though, that readers then may have preferred "more modern" literature and abandoned Crampton Hodnet labelling as "outdated". I'm glad is back in our shelves.
It also reminded me of P Woodehouse. Similar sense of humour.
