26 books finished in 2013: The Nine Tailors

26 books finished in 2013

Why are you reading this book?
Dorothy Sayer!

What is the first line?
The coil of rope which it is necessary to hold in the hand, before, and whilst raising a bell, always puzzles a learner; it gets into his face, and perhaps round his neck (in which case he may be hanged!). -Troyte on Change-Ringing

Describe the book in haiku form:
small town, local church
you will google change-ringing
where’s the dead person?

What will you do with it now?
keep for reference
keep and loan out to friends
x keep to read again & again & again x
post to paperbackswap.com
throw it away

Anything else you’d like to say?
I love how Sayers teases us by waiting so long to reveal a dead body. This one didn’t come until the second half of the book, at which point I was so caught up in the characters and their stories that I forgot to detect.
