This Giddy Globe

by Oliver Herford

Hilarious representation of the earth and its inhabitants with some very novel comparisons. Likening the planet to an apartment are among the best bits. Unfortunately after the first 20 pages the descriptions of countries to round up the book look hurried. Too short but worth a read.

The Belfry

by May Sinclair

Boring, pointless and outdated. The book is either autobiographical or a very long-winded justification of the weak natured and self obsessed.

The Blue Lights

by Frederic Arnold Kummer

A detective husband and wife are both working on a kidnapping case. Somewhat lame. No surprises anywhere. The lead pair appears more inept than the perfect couple in love and genius detectives they are supposed to be.

Bring the Monkey

by Miles Franklin

This is bad satire so bizarre that it should be read just to appreciate the wild plot and character names.
Just about every cliche from 1900's whodunnits is crammed in - jewels, maharajas, sirens, love triangles and so on.
There are spoof parts which are good and satirical bits which are OK and then lengthy and pointless conversations that belong nowhere.
Agatha Christie ,Arthur Conan Doyle - Thank You. May your tribe increase.
