Review by

This reminded me a lot of Wodehouse, but not quite as effortless. Still, there's a lot of humor in the situations and in the quintessentially British way the characters, as described by Antrobus, react to them. Highly recommended, especially for fans of Wodehouse.

Review by

Very funny; P. G. Wodehouse in the foreign service.
