Mapp and Lucia: Book Review

51gzewW685L._SS300_If you enjoyed ‘The Go Between’ by L. P. Hartley, ‘Howards End’ by E. M. Forster, or the more contemporary ’44 Scotland Street’ by Alexander McCall Smith, then Mapp and Lucia will appeal to you. What am I saying?! Mapp and Lucia will appeal to everyone – unless of course, you are far too ‘taresome’! This is a hysterical British South Coast 1930s upper middle class version of Coronation Street. (I am allowed to make this adoration, I’m from Manchester). It is well worth reading the entire 27 hours of the entire series to get to know these wonderful imagined characters whilst they observe and perceive one another. You’ll be wanting to end every conversation with ‘Au reservoir’ (sic) as they do in the books, I tried it but it didn’t catch on…

Page turner rating 5/5

Three word review: Gorgeous favourite read.
