The long, prolix,sentences with multiple digressions were pretentious and silly. They distracted mr from the story over and over again. Otherwise, not a bad read. The narrator was good.
"Not for me"
This book will suit those that appreciate, dare I say, Barbara Cartland-type cliched trite. I found the intonation of the narration inadequate in places and it took some time to get into the plot. I also found some of the threads of the plot annoying -ensconced in stereotypical banality. Nevertheless I didn't immediately guess 'who did it' so it proved mildly entertaining, in the mildest of ways and I guess I should have paid more attention to the title of the book as this should have indicated what I had in store!
