For some reason, despite loving it when I was younger, I bounced right off it. Bounced off it quite hard too. :(
It could just be that I'm not in the right mood for it, but I'm afraid that I had no sympathy for Flora Poste at all this time and though I laughed aloud at the first few pages, the parody soon palled. Anyway, I've put it to one side and I'm reading No Name by Wilkie Collins instead.
