A mediocre middle leaves me underwhelmed... I rated this 3 stars, but it was more like 2.5. There were definately parts of the book I really enjoyed, but I felt like the middle was slow and I kept wondering if the charcters would ever actually DO anything. Right about the time I thought nothing new was ever going to happen, the book picked up and I started to enjoy it in the way I had at the beginning. While there are other authors, like Molly Keane or PD Wodehouse, I would pick up before E.F. Benson, I would read this author again.
