Oh, hai! I read books, then I write down what I think of them.
You know when you get a book, and because it's by somebody whose work you like, or somebody who's written many, many books, you trust it's going to get better?
Meet Habits of The House. It's not entirely its fault; it's been given a stupid cover (I'm not sure who that girlie is supposed to be), and it's being pitched to Downton fans despite the fact it's a comedy of manners.
However, everything else is its fault.
Especially the ending.
The storyline is to do with the son of the family trying to marry an American heiress because the family have significant money troubles.
In the end:
I like Fay Weldon's style of writing, so I'm giving it 2 stars, but everybody else should probably give it a miss.
