This book was FUN! It was totally complicated, with those five red herrings, and I couldn’t keep track of all the suspects, and since it was set in Scotland, Sayers wrote in dialects that I could barely understand – I would have to read sentences out loud. Basically, the author and the protagonist were both having a great time, and you couldn’t help but join them.
