    Best Mystery Ever Written!

    I had read mysteries for easily 20 years beginning at the age of, I don't know, 12, and began tapering off in my 30s as I noticed that most of them were not worth re-reading (the sure sign of a really well-written book). This book is my all-time favorite mystery. The writing is well-above the ordinary genre level. It's more like literature with its finely drawn characters yet it is a mystery, and a great one, at that! Finally, it concludes a love story that began in Gaudy Night (well, actually in Strong Poison but finally reciprocated in Gaudy Night). Read all of the Dorothy Sayers, while you're at it!

    The best Lord Peter

    Busman's Honeymoon and Gaudy Night are the best Lord Peter stories. Must reads if you enjoy Lord Peter and Harriet Vane together as sleuths and mates.

    Excellent from first page to last

    From the opening, presented as letters and journal entries, through the murder mystery and beyond this is an excellent book. What holds it all together and makes it so much richer than most detective mystery novels is the love story of Lord Peter Wimsey and Harriet Vane. He is the sleuth that solves mysteries, she is a murder mystery novelist. Just married, they discover a body while on their honeymoon. This is the fourth Lord Peter mystery that includes Harriet Vane, and these are my favorites of the series. And Busman's Honeymoon is the best of all.

    My highest recommendation

    I am a Sayers fan, and in my opinion this is the best of all the Lord Peter stories. Characters are fully developed, and having great fun. Its a classic "how in the world did the bad guy do it" situation while the characters have a low key, high brow good time, and take you along with them. Leaves you wanting more. Unfortunately it is the last Lord Peter story, except for the stories continued by another author. Those are ok, but leave you wanting for some slight touch that only Sayers could give us. I like this story so much I am trying to buy it again. I have a Nook and want this story in my elibrary even though I have a perfectly good paperback copy on my shelf. Enjoy!

    Busman's Honeymoon is great fun

    I actually am listening to Busman's Honeymoon on audio tape. I have read Sayers and I find her books, for my taste, a great read. She was a wonderful writer and we were lucky she shared her talents with us as a mystery writer. If you like listening to books on tape I really recommend this one - the actor, Ian Carmichael, who reads the story brings the characters to life - the comedy that Sayers intended is acted out beautifully. This story has been a great companion as I travel the roads to work each day.
