Publisher's Summary

In Scoop, surreptitiously dubbed "a newspaper adventure", Waugh flays Fleet Street and the social pastimes of its war correspondants as he tells how William Boot became the star of British super-journalism and how, leaving part of his shirt in the claws of the lovely Katchen, he returned from Ishmaelia to London as the "Daily's Beast's" more accoladed overseas reporter.

Well Written & Funny but Lacking

Scoop is a well written and humorous novel which is quite enjoyable, but is not sublime. The prose are excellent, and the humor wry, but in the end, truly great humorous novels must have poignancy to transcend. This is great writing and kept me entertained until the end, and there are moments of exceptional writing, yet it did not wow me. Perhaps at the time this was written the novel’s humor challenged society more than it seems in retrospect.

The narration was excellent, expressing the subtle humor beautifully.

I enjoyed this book, but certainly don’t plan to read it again.

Delicious humor

This was a delightful book, hilariously scathing, and well read. I wonder how much of the more subtle humor flew over my head or under my feet?
