    "My Favorite Miss Silver So Far"

    I discovered Patricia Wentworth's Miss Silver series about a year ago. They are old fashioned British cozies. My rating is based on how well they fit that genre. Many of the books center on lost relatives or an unusual inheritance. The Chinese Shawl is set in the early 1940's. The details feel authentic and the mystery/murder is intriguing.

    "Interesting"

    not really gripping like the Agatha Christie books of Miss Marple or Hercule P . Very good on character analysis of themselves just too shallow for some of the 'bad' guys. I did not like the book

    Story
    "Cozy Indeed"
    Would you listen to The Chinese Shawl again? Why?

    No - as much as I love the Miss Silver books, they don't bear repeating.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    If it had been a movie, I'd have enjoyed Tanis and Aunt Agnes


    What does Diana Bishop bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Diana Bishop is a consummate narrator. She saves many a book.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No extremes in a cozy!


    Any additional comments?

    I love the term "cozy". It describes exactly what these books are. When you need a break from some tough reads, it's nice to be bundled up in an English cozy. I retreat to Miss Silver quite often and she always calms me.
