Overview

The amazing and terrible Miss Mapp queens it over society in her litte town of Tilling. Hilarious. Miss Mapp may be Benson's finest character, more potent than Lucia because she's so much more real. Excerpt: 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?
