Overview

I lingered at the window of the garden-room from which Miss Mapp so often and so ominously looked forth. To the left was the front of her house, straight ahead the steep cobbled way, with a glimpse of the High Street at the end, to the right the crooked chimney and the church. The street was populous with passengers, but search as I might, I could see none who ever so remotely resembled the objects of her vigilance.

All the cliche'd English types are here - the nosy spinster, the Colonel Blimp, the nobility snob, the gardening fanatic, and others. Only the Miss Marple-like sweet/wise old lady is missing - but then, there are no murders in this novelette. Benson enjoys poking gentle fun at them all. Unlike another reviewer, my eBook showed up fine in my Nook - no edges cut off. Yes, there are the occasional &S#s in place of words, but you get what you pay for, and if you have a twelve-year old native speaker's command of English, you can figure out what word was misread by the digital scanner.

I love Miss Mapp stories, but this e-book edition dowload loses the left edge of print. You can easily guess the words but why should you have to?
