    1. None on said:

      Waugh s gift, so apparent in this novelette, is to fill his books with incident, but to do it in such a way that it never seems gratuitous Who else could have a drunk misfire the starting pistol at a boy s school s games, have the bullet hit a poor kid s foot, cause the kind of damage that necessitates the removal of the foot, and still have us smiling at the audaciousness of it all So don t worry, this slim little volume is a full meal, and a very satisfying one Waugh is also economical charact [...]

      This hilarious classic combines with entwines satirical humour a proportionate observation of british society in the early twentieth century with pure entertainment Evelyn tackles scenes of ridiculous hilarity with wonderous talent this novel is pure genious I loved the scene in the church The characters are perfectly formed in their originality and build most of the comedy of this brilliant novel well worth the time and money to read for all ages

      Decline and Fall is British satire at its best Set in the life of the British Upper Classes, this book makes light of its self importance It is humorous both in its plot and its wording Paul Pennyfeather, a Public school man private school in U.S terms lives an improbable life and meets with a host of characters As readers of my reviews know, the novel is not my main reading genre, but as I discover novels like this my interest I might grow.

      Although this isn t Waugh s best try DECLINE AND FALL or A HANDFUL OF DUST, or even the underappreciated THE ORDEAL OF GILBERT PINFOLD it is still very good A note from one comment I m guessing the horde of Calif reveiewers were schoolkids reading this for an assignment, and aged around 15 Probably NOT the best audience for the book they need to grow a little older and closer to death The fact that some appreciated it is actually heartening.

      Why do you get the reviews for Loved One under Decline and Fall Oh well, I thought that Decline and Fall was an extremely funny book, full of outrageous characters and events I m not giving it 5 stars because I have read better books I found it hard to relate to the characters because they are so strange, but to like a book you don t have to relate to the characters All in all I really enjoyed it.

    6. None on said:

      On one level, Decline and Fall is a wild farce of English manners complete with odd characters, dry humor, and impossible situations In Waugh s humor, you can see the foundation for many British comics to come As an example, the Sports chapter alone could easily be transformed into a Monty Python skit Within his breezy and compact prose, Waugh delivers consistent laughs which makes the novel an enjoyable read.But underneath the surface, Waugh is a wicked and sharp satirist who takes on many of t [...]

    7. None on said:

      This is an under read classic The hapless hero, having been chucked out of university, lands in a barely respectable public school What follows is an hilarious skewering of twentieth century society in microcosm Sex, art, money, and, of course, class, figure prominently, with a sly nod at race, to boot Never a dull moment.

    8. None on said:

      One of Waugh s comic masterpieces, Decline and Fall stands as a hilarious meditation on the calamities imposed on the support players in a superficially dignified world Waugh s brief first novel is a scathing send up of 20th century aristocracy and its institutions, beginning with public i.e private, in Britain boarding schools and progressing on, uproariously and yet somehow logically, to the British prison system All the stylistic reserve and precision of Waugh s later works are in place in th [...]
