Not as enjoyable as the first book (set 17 years earlier), but still an interesting look at England in 1949. And it was fun to see what happened to some of the characters.

Some of the dialect gave me pause. For example:

"Ay, 'twere. It did shut un up, tu. Our Ticklepenny's, look ee, be so goathling an' crow-picken, even th' Ministry won't trouble wi' un. An' Parker-Poke he did go back to Lunnon, brast un fer a bowler-hatten scowkerd!"
