‘The Fargenstropple Case by Lia London’ appeared in my mind’s eye as a classic black and white, late Forties / early Fifties, movie from the Pinewood Studios in London. It’s outright British farcical comedy. It’s a nice, easy, light read, with many amusing lines.

I believe this book was an exercise in community writing, with several people invited to chip in to the storyline as it progressed. And as a rule it works well, considering the whole thing was written and edited in such a short space of time. I had only one slight ‘issue’ though and that was that in a couple of places, the situation either moved or ended very abruptly, and I had to re-read the section to see if I’d skpiped over something.

But don’t let that put you off. This is indeed a delightful romp.
