Yates wrote two kinds of books, adventure thrillers and farces. I like the adventure thrillers, but somehow ended up with some of the farces. This is one of them, thugh it does involve encountrs wth criminals ( )

The situations in the series of short stories were, on the whole, entertaining, though sometimes a little far fetched. Some of the landscape descriptions, of an already vanishing English rural world, are evocative. I found Berry's gradiloquent dialogue rather hard to stomach, however. Clever though it is, can anyone ever have spoken even remotely like that? Would I read another Berry book- probably. ( )

Read these and weep (with laughter).… (more)
