I thought Marina wanted to work,but because of countryside,she couldn't. So she had no choice but to play with another man. This book made me laugh so much,and I have finished reading very quickly. Also, I can compere Englsh between England and America. ( )

Tom and Marina has been married for almost three years.The first two and a half years in London,but now they live in a small,boring village.They meet some strange and funny people.
I don't understand this book is comedy.I think this is a difference between American and Japanese.The detective is a nice guy,I think. ( )

This story was a little complicated for me. It was hard to understand the context. Perhaps that's why I was attracted to the mysterious man. ( )

I think that modern women have a feeling like Marina.And I also have it.But I don't want to spent like Marina and Tom.Because I don't like changes so much. ( )

Tom and Marina have been married for about three years and they live in small village.Before they moved to small village,they lived in London.So Marina doesn't like her daily life and want someone to help housework.One day,a man came their house and helped to iron.Why the ironing man came Tom's house?
I think this story is difficult and there are some scene I can't underutand. So it takes a long time to read this book.But I think the reason why the ironing man visit at Tom's house was good. ( )
