bookshelves: mystery
Recommended for: Lovers of Lovejoy Mysteries
Read from April 10 to May 15, 2010 — I own a copy, read count: 1

As usual, an enjoyable run with Lovejoy and his antique antics. The trip with the 'travvies' could have been shortened by a few chapters without too much problem. Although, it did give him an opportunity to show his divvy skills along the road.

Gash's style of writing - especially to someone who is not used to or immersed in Britain's various dialects and mannerisms of speech - made it a bit difficult to plunge into, and did take some effort to finish this time around.

Still enjoy the characters that Lovejoy encounters (puts up with) and always love to hear that divvy 'bell/gong' go off in his chest when confronted with a genuine antique.

Austen "One thing I hate is this plural women use. Posessions: they talk singular, I, me, all that. Problems: they switch to the plural, what're _we_ going to do." - Lovejoy
