Have you any interest in reading Sadie Jones’s The Uninvited Guests? Is this interest based on your love of all things British-1912-crumbly-country-estate-plus-a-few-ghosts? Well. I found it disappointing — not terrible, as it DID have the elements I enjoy in an airplane book — but basically I just wanted to tell you the best line, which can be found on the last page. Save yourself the hassle of reading the whole thing and enjoy this:
“The spring morning, a tolerably clean house, fresh clothes, love, and four pounds of bacon were to the Torrington-Swifts and their guests the very pinnacle of bliss.”
There! You can cross this book off your list.
