country was 4 at the most but at least 75% are pure perfection.Where has the glorious English language proceeded since this master whirled her quip and phrasing batons And most delightful of all was the quirk and pull of Lord Wimsey s personality edging to get himself in those curious cracks of notice in nearly infinite numbers of societal situations I also loved her dynamics for graphics situated where they fit Placements drawings, charts, sketchings or crossword boards etc And the FRESHNESS of plots and contrivance of insinuations At least 1 2 of these were new to me and never, ever read all together one after the other And the Talboys final story nearly made me fall off the treadmill Bredon, Bredon In times of adversity no better read than such a stolid and brilliant force for justice good intent served as Lord Peter, Bunter and Parker Most of these are pre Harriet days but he does know his goose is cooked there regardless.Just a couple of last over commentary musings She has dialogue so skillful that the word said rarely appears And characters are not introduced and described They just ARE and reveal themselves by their words in conversation and their surroundings of particular physical placement Can some modern writers of acclaim READ her and LEARN Please And all of that doesn t always come in the first 2 pages either Finally I enjoyed the style and scientific levels of that particular era to a 6 star level Especially the dentistry and lighting optics norm Heavily, heavily recommend I had read the first three Lord Peter novels and fallen in love, not only with the writing and wit Dorothy Sayers has an incredible vocabulary, rarely seen elsewhere, her Oxford education in languages shows in all sorts of glory which grew with each new book, but also with the depiction of life and crime solving in 1920 s England, and of course, the goofy and lovably brilliant Lord Peter.This book was sitting on my daughter s bookshelf, and, having borrowed it I wasthan

the series these are the first twelve stories in this edition.andThe story Talboys, being recently discovered, written in 1942, appears in this volume in print for the first time, for example.I am not normally a fan of short stories, and while a few of them I could have skipped, I was surprised by how much I hated to lay this volume down As I said, I do enjoy the novels quite a bit , but this little gem is a very worthwhile read, and not just for those who enjoy the series The names of the stories are incredible in themselves from The Picatorial Farce of the Stolen Stomach to The Entertaining Episode of the Article in Question and The Undignified Melodrama of the Bone of Contention Of course, while some stories are farinteresting than others I particularly enjoyed The Bibulous Business of a Matter of Taste I highly recommend this for the die hard Wimsey fan as well as anyone who loves to read the English language used in such masterful and playful ways In the world of Lord Peter, murder is jolly good fun Dorothy Sayer wrote fun and interesting mysteries using the character of Lord Peter to hook her readers, and this reviewer feel right into the trap.The reader immediately identifies with Lord Peter, we all want to be incredibly wealthy with personal man servants waiting on our needs and responsive to our every whim The character is heroic, devil may care, handsome and eccentric Who wouldn t want to be him Beyond the hero of these mysteries In the world of Lord Peter, murder is jolly good fun Dorothy Sayer wrote fun and interesting mysteries using the

servants waiting on our needs and responsive to our every whim The character is heroic, devil may care, handsome and eccentric Who wouldn t want to be him Beyond the hero of these mysteries is an excellent writer who can create intriguing mysteries that for the reader become page turners This series of mystery s becomes a little less interesting when our perfect man falls in love with another interesting character Harriet Vane, less interesting because we want him to be unencumbered with marriage and children in order to fulfill the readers fantasies.This particular compilation of stories is a bed side book that can sit for a while and than can immediately bring the reader right back into the thick of it For this reviewer, this genre is an escape from the real world and a chance to live in a fantasy world, another murder Oh,jolly good fun Sayers is a master of the crime genre, and these stories are absolutely wonderful examples of her sharp brain and talent for storytelling Some of their attitudes are a little dated now, but the plots still shine 12 Please note this review is meant as a recommendation only Please do not use it in any marketing material, online or in print, without asking permission from me first Thank you Well, I guess I know what series I m launching myself headlong into now Truly dare I say it deuced good stuff.
