So That's Where "Upstairs, Downstairs" Came From!

Having either read or listened to a number of the Blandings Castle stories, I will always have a soft spot in my heart for Lord Emsworth and his looney family. I guess this book was probably written early in the series, before Freddie's marriage and the introduction of "The Empress". Although it contains many of the same plot elements of other Blandings sagas, there is a lot more action "below stairs" in this one which really does make it SOMETHING FRESH.

Cheeky Fun

Lighthearted fun filled with quirky characters in zany situations of misunderstandings, false identities, romantic entanglements and theft of a valuable object. This all plays out in the perfect setting of an English country manor. Reminiscent of the sparkling old ‘30s movies, I can imagine Robert Montgomery as the smart and cheeky Ashe Marson, and the rest of the cast filled with the best character actors of the day. Though the plot is feather-light, the writing is crisp and witty and completely entertaining. The mastery of language puts many contemporary writers to shame. I thoroughly enjoyed this selection.
