Rib tickling at its best. Hilarious, I love a good giggling fit and there are plenty of those. I find myself sniggering when I walk around doing my shopping as I suddenly get a mental image from the book it is that well written. Excellent.
Lord David returns with a hilarious sequel to his well-received book, My Barshetshire Diary. While coping with his usual difficulties – the domineering feline, Oscar, the intimidating Lady J, a rebellious credit card that refuses to leave his pocket, and the general burdens a titled lord must endure with a stiff upper lip – Lord David has now met his match. The great matriarch, Triple D – Diana the Dowager Duchess of Cheam to be exact – needs his services in her fund raising schemes, something that the shy and retiring lord does not enjoy one bit. Top it off with the return of the Dreadful Edna, who has some strange political schemes of her own, and you can see that Lord David is in the soup – sometimes quite literally, especially during visits to his favorite restaurants. The fun is ably assisted by the brilliant illustrations of the artist Sara Japanwalla, who seems to have invaded Lord David’s mind, so well she captures the characters, the expressions, and the activities of the... More > slightly deranged denizens of Barsetshire. Their collaboration is priceless. This is the perfect book to cheer you up during the hard times we are all encountering these days. You’ll be laughing so hard at the expense of poor Lord David, that your own troubles will become quite insignificant by comparison. And if by any chance you have missed the previous books – My Barsetshire Diary and The Queen’s Envoy – now is the time to get them. Believe me, you’ll want them; Barsetshire becomes quite addictive under Lord David’s pen. Ilil Arbel< Less
