This one makes my BEST EVER TOP TEN LIST! The jokes are largely over my head British Humor - the writing clever and long, the plot long and Maughamly - what else would anyone want? A seaside, a romance, a writer coming and a writer going - London at the turn of the century... it's all there for the taking... Who knew such a bright side of the world could be painted by Maugham?

All right, though it went on and on a bit in parts. I liked the overall story and characters, but it felt like there was too much build-up for nothing in some cases.

This is not a great Maugham book but a good read.
