Murder by Death

I read cozy and historical mysteries, a bit of Paranormal/UF, and to mix it up, I read science and gardening books on occasion.

Very British Problems: Making Life Awkward for Ourselves, One Rainy Day at a Time

Very British Problems: Making Life Awkward for Ourselves, One Rainy Day at a Time - Rob Temple

This book was quite a bit different than what I expected.  It's basically a collection of tweets (and maybe Facebook posts?); observations on the British cultural identity - each page only listing a half-dozen or so and each chapter attempts to categorise them into different areas (travel, weather, sex, etc.).

 

That's not to say I didn't enjoy what was there; most of them are funny and quite a few of them apply to me.  Either I'm secretly British, or the UK has a lot of introverts; I'm guessing it's more the latter than the former.  Some of them were so spot-on it was scary.

 

I'd have preferred a narrative style myself and if asked, I'd say while it is definitely worth reading, it might be better borrowed from the library or picked up at bargain prices.
