Never before in the history of his connection with the Hotel du Lac had Gustavo encountered such a munificent, companionable, expansive, entertaining, "thoroughly" unique and inexplicable guest Even the fact that he was American scarcely accounted for everything. Yesterday this guest had rung the bell and demanded a partner to play lawn tennis -- as if the hotel kept partn ...more

یک عاشقانه شیطنت آمیز، مکارانه و طنز

It's always darkest before the dawn.

'Dear Constance, haven't you had enough of play, are you never going to grow up? You are such a kid!'

So fun. I listened to this on Librivox for free. If you like Little Women, this will appeal.

An interesting, unusual comedy romance set in Italy in early 1900.
Jerry and Constance are fun to read about as Jerry sets about to woo her in an uns

An amusing read though not a book to model your personal character off of, lol. I was laughing really hard at a few parts to where I had to set the book down and cry, it was so funny, but there's little moral value to the book. A couple places could have been omitted in my opinion. Overall I think it's a silly, giggle-while-reading book, but with hardly enough substance to really make it quite good.

More like 2 stars for most of the book (time hasn't been kind to this book, I guess) - but there are glimmers of fun and originality from time to time which saves it from being totally forgettable, like when Jerry tries to pass off Anglo-Saxon as Hungarian(!).

A farcical comedy of errors - but it provided entertainment enough for an evening hike.

Jean Webster (pseudonym for Alice Jane Chandler Webster) was an American writer and author of many books including Daddy-Long-Legs and Dear Enemy.
