    1. It had its moments. But the beginning was rather sleepy, and throughout the book the main character seems to consistently either stick his head in the sand by living without a thought for the future or else be almost paralyzed by feeling sorry for himself. I liked the Rain-Girl pretty well, and the cousin Lord Drewitt.The plot: A young man decides he's going to "tramp" around England for a while, instead of holding down a job and doing the normal things that his relatives expect him to. But on t [...]

    2. A rather odd start. Far too much philosophizing for my tastes, especially in chapter two. In fact, the entire first third of the story contains little to entertain or touch me. I was bored.One-third of the way through the story, we meet, in passing, the first entertaining character, Mrs. Crisp. She made me laugh. It improves from there. One of the main characters, Lord Drewitt [nice name], produces some quotable quotes. Next, some action starts. Just past half-way- such an interesting surprise! [...]

    3. It was a rather quaint book. Witty and charming. I didn't love the character Lola as much as I fell in love with the idea of 'The Rain Girl', and Lord Drewitt, although just a supporting character was by far my favourite. His perfectly timed sarcasm and general off handed demeanour were curiously endearing.

    4. Not brilliant, but light and entertaining, in the same general class as Wodehouse's Jeeves books. Listened to as an audio book via the Librivox site.
