This is a certain kind of book. If you like novels that have "high style," very British, very early 20th Century, with a sly wit, you're likely to enjoy this book.
If you like a measure of realism, more Hemingwayesque, not so much.
It is an enjoyable read with a glimpse into the morals and styles that still roll as an undercurrent through British society. It's fun in a P. G. Wodehouse kind of way.
