5-0 out of 5 stars Mapp is Marvelous
This was my first exposure to Miss Mapp, and my first trip to Tilling. I cannot wait to visit again. It took me to a place that no longer exists, with such hilarious characters. Take your time and read this slowly when you have time to savor the atmosphere. Just find it a little frustrating that now I am hooked, other books in the series are not available on Kindle - at least here in the USA.

5-0 out of 5 stars Once Immersed, Loved It
I had the same initial difficulty getting into this book as I did Wodehouse's Jeeves and Wooster.However, once fully immersed in it, I became wholly converted to the cult of Mapp and Lucia.This volume only has Mapp but Mapp is quite enough on her own!This is small town life as depicted with a sly wit by E.F. Benson.The time period is between the two world world wars and it is set in England. There is no tv so life is one endless round of get togethers with one's townspeople with the favorite past time being bridge. This book opens by exploring how ideally Mapp's house is situated so she can spy on all of her neighbors and quickly moves into the one-upmanship practiced by virtually everyone. If one is in any way slighted, the plotting for revenge is intricate and then executed with the fervor of a hard won military push into enemy territory. This reminded me very much of my New England grandmother and her hey day in her small town.

I also listened to this on audio as read by the wonderful actress Prunella Scales. She played Basil Fawlty's wife in FAWLTY TOWERS.Listening to her interpretation helped me greatly on easing into this whole world.

5-0 out of 5 stars Through the decades this series still stands as a great read
Preposterus, silly, vain and oh so human the characters all remind you of people you know far too well.Reading this book is settling down for a long and wicked gossip.

5-0 out of 5 stars first-rate satire
Miss Elizabeth Mapp -- malicious, snooping, miserly and snobbish -- serves as the social center of Tilling, a thinly veiled portrait of the English town of Rye, Sussex, in the 1920s. Determined to maintain her position and to one-up her neighbors, Godiva Plaistow and Susan Poppit, MBE, Miss Mapp resents others' success and devotes hours to planning how to elevate herself. Aside from social-climbing, bridge parties and gardening, Miss Mapp's only other concern is the long-shot scheme of entrapping her neighbor, an Army captain and middle-aged bachelor named Benjamin Flint, into matrimony.

Sounds like an outdated bore? In fact, E.F. Benson's biting satire on upper-middle-class pursuits proves hilarious, sort of a more cynical version of a P.G. Wodehouse novel. If you're a fan of M.C. Beaton's Agatha Raisin series or of Julian Fellowes' "Snobs," you'll love all of the books in the Mapp & Lucia series.

5-0 out of 5 stars One of my favorite books
I love the whole Mapp and Lucia series by E.F. Benton. Love it even more in Kindle format. ... Read more

Product Description

a selection from CHAPTER I:

Bolton Spa, justly famous for the infamous savour of the waters which so magically get rid of painful deposits in the joints and muscles of the lame and the halt, and for the remedial rasp of its saline baths in which the same patients are pickled daily to their great relief, had been crammed all the summer, and the proprietors of its hotels and boarding houses had been proving that for them at least rheumatism and its kindred afflictions had a silver if not a golden lining. Never had Wentworth and Balmoral and Blenheim and Belvoir entertained so continuous a complement of paying guests, and even now, though the year had wheeled into mid-October, and the full season was long past, Mrs. Oxney was still booking rooms for fresh arrivals at Wentworth during the next two months. In fact she did not know when she would get off on her holiday, and as long as this prosperous tide continued to flow, she cared very little whether she got off at all. Though she did not want money, she liked it, and though she liked a holiday, she did not want it.

The existence, or rather the names, of Balmoral, Blenheim and Belvoir was a slight but standing grievance with Mrs. Oxney, the sort of grievance which occasionally kept her awake for half an hour should it perch in her drowsy consciousness as she composed herself to sleep and begin pecking at her mind. 'For naturally,' so she thought to herself in these infrequent vigils, 'if a lady or gentleman was thinking of coming to Bolton Spa, and wanted comfort and, I may say, luxury when they are taking their cure, they would look at the Baths Guide-book, and imagine that Balmoral and Blenheim and Belvoir and Wentworth were all much of a muchness. And then if they chose any of the others they would find themselves in a wretched little gimcrack semi-detached villa down in the hollow, with only one bathroom and that charged extra, and the enamel all off, and cold supper on Sunday and nobody dressing for dinner. Not that it's illegal to call yourself Balmoral, far from it; for there is nothing to prevent you calling your house "Boiled Rabbit" or "Castor Oil," but those who haven't got big houses ought to have enough proper feeling not to mis-call them by big names.'

Mrs. Oxney's grievance was as well founded as most little vexations of the kind, for certainly Wentworth was a very different class of house from Balmoral and Blenheim and Belvoir, which, though it might possibly be libellous to call them gimcrack, could not be described as other than semi-detached. There could not be any divergence of opinion over that point or over the singleness of their bathrooms and the cold supper on Sunday. Wentworth, on the other hand, was so entirely and magnificently detached that nobody would dream of calling it detached at all: you might as well call a ship at sea detached....

5-0 out of 5 stars For all B&B-ers
Here's a delightful book we found during our three--and their twenty-seven-- days of fog on Deer Island, N.B., while paying guests.Those familiar with the Tilling (Rye, East Sussex) of Benson's Mapp and Lucia will not be surprised at the array of characters here: the butterfly-fingered pianist-painter Miss Howard with her "little place in Kent" that entices the bachelor exercise-fanatic Colonel Chase to propose while the virtuosa is entertaining a more welcome--and more modern--proposal from another quarter.For others from the Boston area, Mrs. Bliss, a mind healer, is a wonderful creation; and, more profound is the dutiful Florence, daughter and nurse to her unappreciative, valetudinarianfather, Mr. Kemp.Oh, we read it all aloud, savoring, making it last over a month.This novel is a welcome, ironic antidote to all the pharmaceutical hype on TV.It's about "paying guests" who are there for the Cure; and by all that's sacred in Tilling, this book IS the cure. ...

E.F.Benson's Daily Training (published in 1903) contains a series of physical exercises, along with solid advice concerning one's health.

Product Description
Purchase of this book includes free trial access to www.million-books.com where you can read more than a million books for free.This is an OCR edition with typos.Excerpt from book:spring, it gives no fulfilment like the noons of summer; it is just itself—exquisite, meaningless, and at times horribly sad. For the year has turned ; we have had our bright and our beautiful times, and they are over, and soon will be the season of long, dark evenings; and the blear-eyed peerings of the remote sun through the fogs of November. In the winter, too, there is something of the hibernating spirit about us; we dream and doze, and vitality sometimes burns a little low, and age looks over our shoulder, and we tend to be possessed with the Spirit of the falling leaf.Now, the Spirit of the falling leaf is a most unprofitable demon. To dwell on the thought of decay and age and death cannot, I believe, be salutary for anybody. Pereunt et imfutantur. That motto, surely, was written by an atheist and an idiot. For, in the first place, the hours that go so swiftly by do not perish—each hour that passes goes to form the present ; what we did or were then is exactly that which makes us what we are now. And if we are to seriously give our minds to the contemplation of what is written up against us in the ledger-book of the hours that havepassed, we shall, if we have any conscience at all, only secure for ourselves paralysis in the future. No decently-minded man, if he dwells on his missed opportunities with any honesty, can possibly raise his head again. A lively repentance sets its face steadily forwards, never backwards.This Spirit of the falling leaf is my especial foe, and I detest him with all the fervour of familiarity. Every autumn he whispers to me, ' Look at the trees from which the yellow leaves are falling slowly, slowly, but steadily. Soon they will be quite bare ; their summer is over, a year is gone. But they will renew their youth in the spring, the green bud... ... Read more
