Reviews by Tina

Agatha Webb

by Anna Katharine Green

Very good mystery, although itís difficult to believe anyone could be quite so saintly (and superstitious) as Agatha Webb. The tragic love story underlying the mystery lift it out of the ordinary whodunnit genre.

Nightmare Abbey

by Thomas Love Peacock

This is a sharp satire, in the style of the Gothic novel, which pokes fun at many of the pretensions of the various strata of society. Centred on Nightmare Abbey, the home of the miserable Mr Glowry and his son, Scythrop, the basic story - of a young man who finds himself involved in a love triangle - has elements of farce.

Itís not the easiest book to read, having long stretches of dialogue and musings, but the apt names of the characters do make it easier to follow, and itís a witty and entertaining read.

Arson Plus

by Dashiell Hammett

Good short story. The plot centres on the investigation of a possible arson in which a man was killed, and has a clever twist at the end.

The Red House Mystery

by A.A. Milne

Obviously, Winnie-the-Pooh has overshadowed A.A. Milneís work, which is rather a shame. This book, which centres on the search for a missing man, the possible killer of his rakish brother who has returned from Australia, is an excellent mystery, and well worth reading.
