    Excellent Women by Barbara Pym

    This book and all of Barbara Pym's books are great small Brit town reads.
    If you enjoy the British programs on PBS you will enjoy her books. Even if there is no essential plot you just fall in with her characters and really care what they have to say and what they do.

    One to Read Again and Again

    This is my second time reading Barbara Pym's Excellent Women. I confess, when I checked the book out, I hadn't remembered that I had read it--that is, until I opened it up and ran into my old acquaintance Mildred. I was tempted to put it down again--just because I had wanted a new book--but I found I couldn't. Pym draws you in, with her funny characters, and those scenes of awkward humanity. Once I finished, I immediately went to the library and checked out The Sweet Dove Died, which I loved even more. Pym is fast becoming one of my favorite writers.

    Excellent Read

    It was most enjoyable. I had never heard of this author or her books. I wish I would have found her sooner. It is so hard to describe this book. It was just a fun time to read it. I will read the rest of her books. Too bad there aren't that many books she wrote before she died.
