Cold Comfort Farm

       Where has the novel been all my life??? Cold Comfort Farm is one of those books that I had heard about (vaguely) for years, but had never gotten around to reading until recently. For shame, T, for shame! If I had only read it sooner, I could have happily joined the ranks of Gibbons-Lovers who re-read this novel annually. I loved - and I do mean LOVED - Gibbons' writing style, her voice, and her fabulously quirky characters. As for the plot, it was right up my alley, containing a vast about of ridiculous situations, plenty of romantic entanglements, and a generous helping of chaos. Oh, and if I ever happen to own a cow, I may seriously considering calling it "Feckless."
