The Great Miss Driver

by Anthony Hope

Hope is a good writer but at times too in love with his own voice. Worth reading if one has the patience, but this would have been a better book at two-thirds the length.

No actual hero, and an admirable but less than satisfactory heroine.

Half a Hero

by Anthony Hope

Pretty enjoyable tale of politics and people in a fictitious British colony. Sadly, Hope chooses a tragic ending for the hero.

Second String

by Anthony Hope

Decently-written story though lacking in great excitement and far too lengthy with numerous secondary plots.

The Secret of the Tower

by Anthony Hope

Jolly little mystery that reads swiftly. Could use a bit more blood and thunder, I suppose.
