No, no, Notwithstanding

Notwithstanding by Louis de Bernieres

According to Amazon this is “A funny and heartbreaking new book from one of Britain’s favourite and bestselling writers.”

And it quotes some other reviews:

`Bernieres paints an affectionate picture of village life’ — Daily Express

`not just very funny, but makes you oddly proud to be British’ — Sunday Telegraph

I can’t recommend this book warmly enough. — The Lady, Book Reviews, Susan Hill

Now, if these aren’t enough to make you run a mile then let me put it a different way: avoid; don’t bother; set aside; give away if received as gift.

It really has nothing to recommend it. One mildly poignant passage is all I got from it. And could not bring self to complete.
