Miss Buncle Married The sequel to Miss Buncle s Book, Miss Buncle Married, is very good and I enjoyed getting back into her world and reading all about her adventures with her new neighbors and husband s family It is almost as delightful as the first book and I read it very quickly as I couldn t wait to find out what happened My only criticism is that it ended much too quickly If you are a fan of cozy British village tales you will love the very cleverly plotted If I could do one, tiny small thing for the good of all mankind, I would make the mid brow, mid wars English literature a must for everybody DE Stevenson was a master the author of the Miss Buncle series is as dry a wit as it comes, along with Nancy Mitford, Stella Gibbons, Angela Thirkell, MJ Farrell, EF Benson Hilarious stories about English village life brimming with insane characters and the pleasantries of the day I love this time periods Any of these authors are literature s Xanax, a If I could do one, tiny small thing for the good of all mankind, I would make the mid brow, mid wars English literature a must for everybody DE Stevenson was a master the author of the Miss Buncle series is as dry a wit as it comes, along with Nancy Mitford, Stella Gibbons, Angela Thirkell, MJ Farrell, EF Benson Hilarious stories about English village life brimming with insane characters and the pleasantries of the day I love this time periods Any of these authors are literature s Xanax, amodern day version of Cranford I parse these books out and read one every three months or so as a special treat it s not like these authors are writing anyof them MIss Buncle is hilarious about a spinster who decided to write a book because she is short of money Think Evelyn Vaugh books but MUCH moire charming And no sex EVER Barely any kissing Just good old fashioned falling in love in minutes and then inheriting huge estates If you love Jane Austen, PLEASE try these books out Most of these writers were prolific but largely forgotten And their stuff is AWESOME Not as superbly clever or as screamingly funny as the first book Miss Buncle s writing and her book s relation to the real life of the village added a dimension that pushed that one from good to great but still quite witty and entertaining The former Miss Buncle and her new husband Mr Abbott move house in order to get out of having to attend bridge parties Of course, their new town has its own set of local dramas and entanglements and colorful characters I wasn t very pleased with the e Not as superbly clever or as screamingly funny as the first book Miss Buncle s writing and her book s relation to the real life of the village added a dimension that pushed that one from good to great but still quite witty and entertaining The former Miss Buncle and her new husband Mr Abbott move house in order to get out of having to attend bridge parties Of course, their new town has its own set of local dramas and entanglements and colorful characters I wasn t very pleased with the end view spoiler Especially the valorization of motherhood I m going to do something much, much cleverer, Barbara announces Anybody could write a book I ve going to have a baby And even before the pregnancy, there is an ongoing theme of Barbara having to give up writing because she s married But I don t think it was considered that unsuitable in the 1930s for married women to write especially since she used a pen name Stevenson herself was married Barbara really wants to write she keeps having to resist the urge she s even written most of a new book already and the other characters, even her husband, don t seem adamant about it I didn t get why that was the end, her having to give up writing and I guess sort of getting the baby as a reward for being a good womanly wife hide spoiler But up till that I enjoyed the book, and many of the character sketches are amazing This was as delightful as the first And really dependent on it Or, at least, I think my enjoyment was materially affected by being familiar with the first book In a good way, I mean So read the first And then read this one not least because you d know what you are getting and it is very fine, indeed. The further adventures of Mrs Barbara Abbott nee Buncle as she settles into married life with her husband in a new town in a new house with new neighbors and new stories to tell This was both absolutely delightful and just the slightest bit disappointing for me I absolutely adored seeingof Barbara s wide eyed approach to the world around her, and Arthur s devotion to her was exactly what I

husband in a new town in a new house with new neighbors and new stories to tell This was both absolutely delightful and just the slightest bit disappointing for me I absolutely adored seeingof Barbara s wide eyed approach to the world around her, and Arthur s devotion to her was exactly what I thought was missing from the first book There s this very cozy sensation of roosting to Miss Buncle Married that I both loved and envied you can tell they have found their home and they re making it theirs, both house and neighborhood and neighbors, too, and it was just a nice feeling of homestead and community and all that rot Extremely enjoyable Except except There was aovert sexism to this book than to Miss Buncle s Book and it kind of soured things for me And the lack of resolution to the Barbara writing plotline was just really frustrating And what was that very strange bit about the voodoo doll THE HELL And uggggh the masculine condescension UGH, I SAY Absolutely dated but also absolutely gross But I did love Jerry and Sam and Arthur and Mrs Thane and The Archway House and Wandlebury, so I m feeling forgiving In this charming follow up to Miss Buncle s Book, readers will follow Barbara Buncle s journey into married life in a new town filled with fascinating neighborswho may become the subjects of Barbara s next novel Miss Buncle may have settled down, but she s already discovered that married life has done nothing to prevent her from getting into humorous mix ups and hilarious hijinx Readers will continue to fall in love with Barbara as she hilariously navigates an exciting new beginning The sequel to I enjoyed this book just as much as I did the first maybe a little , as there s aunified plot Miss Buncle, now Mrs Abbott, takes it into her head to buy a run down house in a little village so as to get away from the constant social demands of her and her husband s friends in town She s also sworn off writing, particularly since she likes her new home and is afraid of having to move away if she publishes another book about her neighbors But she hasn t sworn off observing, and once I enjoyed this book just as much as I did the first maybe a little , as there s aunified plot Miss Buncle, now Mrs Abbott, takes it into her head to buy a run down house in a little village so as to get away from the constant social demands of her and her husband s friends in town She s also sworn off writing, particularly since she likes her new home and is afraid of having to move away if she publishes another book about her neighbors But she hasn t sworn off observing, and once again we get a novel full of delightful, quirky characters and interesting interactions between them.I loved Mr Abbott s nephew Sam, though his falling in love was telegraphed strongly actually, I think that was part of the appeal, drawing him so strongly as a man about town just waiting for the right girl without knowing it And Jerry, the right girl, was just as engaging Barbara Abbott, though, is still the main draw, and her innocence that passes for arch cleverness fascinated me The ending was just right view spoiler I was afraid Jerry would end up inheriting the fortune after all, and her marriage to Sam was revealed at just the right time hide spoiler I hope there s another Miss Buncle book, because these are sweet and satisfying and I m enjoying them immensely Barbara Buncle has now married her publisher, Arthur Abbot They are happy together, but rather bored of the endless dinner parties and Bridge parties that they are having to attend In order to avoid offending their friends, they decide to move After a long search, Barbara eventually finds the perfect house in a lovely village A whole new wonderful cast of characters are introduced to us The problem is, will she be able to stop herself from writing a new book Not quite as laugh out loud fu Barbara Buncle has now married her publisher, Arthur Abbot They are happy
