Mr Finchley Discovers His England (Mr Finchley, Book 1) by Victor Canning Farrago General Fiction (Adult) , Humor
Mr Edgar Finchley, unmarried solicitor's clerk, aged 45, is told to take a holiday for the first time in his life. He decides to go to Margate. But Fate has other plans in store.
From his abduction in a Bentley by a cheerful crook, to his smuggling escapade off the south coast, the timid but plucky Mr Finchley is plunged into a series of the most astonishing and extraordinary adventures.
His rural adventure takes him gradually westward through the English countryside and back, via a smuggling yacht, to London.
Jerome Jerome meets Mr Bean in this gentle comedy series, which was a runaway bestseller on first publication in the 1930s and retains a timeless appeal today. It has been dramatized twice for BBC Radio, with the 1990 series regularly repeated.
This is the first book in Mr. Finchley’s adventures and I truly enjoyed reading this book. You definitely get lost in the escapades of Mr. Finchley. They are fun, humorous, and leaves you wanting more. As Edgar buys a dilapidated bike and takes off on his adventures you learn he spends the night at the headquarters of the gang before heading out to explore England.
The story is extremely entertaining and if you like reading stories set in the 1930’s then this book is for your.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this book for anyone who loves a good mystery. 📕👍🏼
I GIVE IT A 5 STAR: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
