Read in December, 2007 — I own a copy

When Flora Post's parents die, she ends up staying with relatives in the country at Cold Comfort Farm, and immediately sets about making their lives "better".

It took a long time for me to warm to this book. The faux-early 20th century style threw me, and the protagonist was annoying to start with. The dour characters at the farm didn't help either, but about two thirds the way in, things started coming together; the style started to work; and the comedy started to shine through. Worth persevering with.
