    1. Voici le 4ème volume de la série des Mapp & Lucia. Nous avons fait connaissance avec la machiavélique Lucia dans les épisodes 1 et 3, et avec la malveillante Miss Mapp dans l'épisode 2. Dans cette 4ème aventure, Lucia, veuve à présent, délaisse son village de Riseholme et s'installe quelques mois à Tilling, où règne et sévit Miss Mapp. Dans le charmant petit village, c'est bientôt une guerre acharnée entre les deux femmes, chacune rivalisant d'ingéniosité - et d'amabilité - pou [...]

    2. At something like $1.99 for all six Lucia and Mapp novels and several short stories in amazon's e-edition, this collection is the bargain of a lifetime for those who want to read all of the elegantly amusing E.F. Benson books about upper crust rivalries - especially the particularly vicious rivalry between the two women who are the title characters - in two charming English villages between the wars. There is nothing quite like the selfish, vain, and social-climbing twits in these classics, and [...]

    3. Not for everyone. Jane Austen comes to mind. Geriatric P&P. Plus a bit of Steven Leacock or Samuel Mark Twain Clemens. No admirable characters you would want to identify with, but an aloof and humorous narrator holds it all together. This is why the dramatizations don't work. No entertaining narrator, just the excruciating characters. It helps to have visited Rye, a very nice place. Also an interest in things pre-WW2 will keep you going. I enjoy Benson, in small doses, but that's just me [...]

    4. If you haven't read the Lucia books (including the one entitled 'Miss Mapp'), you really should. They are wonderful. Inventive, witty, edgy, and often hilarious. I've read the whole series several times, and enjoy the books just as much each time. Highly recommended.

    5. As an old lady, living in a small town I was amazed at how many of my friends and neighbors appeared in these stories. Mapp and Lucia became friends with whom I enjoyed spending time . If you have never lived in a small town you may not "get it", but you will find many smiles an more than a few LOL!

    6. What a fun read. The premise of two elderly ladies in combat for control of a town's society is a gem. Both Elizabeth Mapp and Lucia Lucas are formidable in their own rightgether they are a juggernaut; then throw in Georgie for good measure and it's a laugh a minute. I am looking forward to other books in the series.
