Decline and Fall is good humor

by Sarah G. D on Jun 2, 2011

Excellent satire. A must read for lovers of literature.


Easily pleased in the 1930s

Not having read anything by Evelyn Waugh I saw this on Alibris and bought it. I have read many times how good an author he is so I was looking forward to something intelligent and witty. I'm sorry to say that I found it to be utter rubbish - ponderous "humour", if that's not too strong a word, daft unconvincing plot, and altogether very disappointing. I read in the blurb on the cover that it was a big seller when it came out, hence the heading.
