I’ve decided to do a mini-review of each book in the following format:
Cold Comfort Farm
Genre: Rural Melodrama with a hint of sci-fi (video phones, Anglo-Nicaraguan War of ’46)
Difficulty: Moderate – some characters have thick accents, several neologisms describing farm life, occasional ultra-violet prose
Rating: PG – adult themes (nothing liable to scar the kiddies, but they probably wouldn’t get the jokes, so wouldn’t be interested)
Recommend: Yes, provided you’re not too invested in “literature” to be able to laugh at it
Up next … (affects thick Romanian accent) … a certain Count by the name of … Dracula!
