I did not want to read this - I have a pile of books next to my bed that I'm dying to get into but this was my February book club read and I had to read it for the meeting - but I wasn't happy about it!
As it was, it was quite good fun. Towards the End of the Morning is set in the crossword and nature notes department of an obscure national newspaper during the declining years of Fleet Street. The book is evocatively written and I could imagine the cigarette smoke and typewriters of the newsroom.
It was amusing in places but not hilarious as a fellow book clubber described it. Luckily it was short so I was able to skip through it quite quickly.
