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.

August Folly - DNF

August Folly (Virago Modern Classics) - Angela Thirkell

I hate to do this to an Angela Thirkell book, because I've truly enjoyed every other book of hers I've read so far, but I can't keep on.


I don't like Richard, who, as of page 63, is the main character.  He's sulky and immature and even worse, he's starting to moon over a woman his mother's age who is happily married and has 9 children.  I have no doubt whatsoever that subsequent events will mature him and his romantic interests will soon be redirected into more appropriate avenues, with much hilarity ensuing in the process.  But I can't make myself go through the painful bits to get to the funny bits.


Angela Thirkell was a prolific author so there was bound to be one I didn't love, and I'll not let this one damp my enthusiasm.
