  1. William J Locke is one of my comfort read authors Even books that are not his best are never complete duds, and his plots, while improbable and verbose with the vibrant verbiage of a true verbarian, hit the spot for me There s no explaining it.In this story, we have a 40 year old, staid philosopher searching for the Great Meaning He s a little awkward, very proper and not particularly attractive, being described as tall, thin, and hatchet faced.One day, while walking the Enbankment, he comes upo [...]


  2. Oh, I loved this Maybe not as much as Simon the Jester, but close, very close Marcus is 40, uninterested in having a part in the world outside his library and not worried about life passing him by He s content to keep it that way, having no responsibilities towards anyone That is, until one day when he finds a young, bedraggled girl sobbing on a bench and can t find it in him to leave the poor thing to the streets It was a bit like when one takes in a stray kitten, and a whole new chapter of his [...]


  3. Four stars based on the first and largest part of the book, which was funny and original The last third or so was pretty melodramatic and felt like a downer to me, but things ended well With William J Locke, I ve discovered that you never can quite tell what s going to happen next, and his characters are sometimes a random bunch.Sir Marcus Ordeyne, an ex schoolteacher turned nobleman after some distant relatives die, is priggishly pleased with his chosen lifestyle He s a detached, philosophic bo [...]


  4. I ve struggled with William Locke before, not finding myself able to finish his books that I started They were too light for me, too much talk and not enough going on But this one kept my attention I m not certain of the difference, except this narrator sounded and felt very authentic Maybe that means I related to him But his foibles, pride, weakness, and all made for a very believable character who served very well as an unreliable narrator Each supporting character felt well rounded All the c [...]


  5. Sometimes our reasons for reading a book are peculiar.In this case, they certainly are A friend who is a composer has been working on an opera based on the 22 men Shackleton left on Elephant Island in 1916 when he went to get help from South Georgia One scene includes the men discussing the entries they have been reading in the several volumes of the Encyclopedia Britannica that they kept with them after the Endeavour sank This led me to wonder what other books Shackleton took for the expedition [...]


  6. One of my two favorite books that I ve read so far this year This one resonated with me on so many levels and I really didn t want it to end Exquisite reading in Standard British English with other dialects by Simon Evers on Librivox Highly recommended



  7. A very entertaining book Downtrodden schoolmaster Ordeyne suddenly comes into a title and fortune and as Sir Marcus Ordeye he has no idea of what to do with his wealth and new idleness Walking through a London park he finds a young girl weeping it turns out that she is a Harem Girl who has been imported to England for an arranged marriage, but who has run away The wonderful and thoroughly improbable plot takes off from there, with a few poignant observations along the way Highly recommended if y [...]


  8. 3.3 You are writing a lot of rubbish, says Carlotta And a little truth The mixture is life, I answer.
