    Many people think of nineteenth century literature as Austen, Dickens, Bronte, Eliot, shading off into Hardy I don t think that diet gives us much of an insight into the real lives of people then, and that is the strength of Surtees He can t construct a plot for toffee, though this novel does have a glimmer of beginning and end, and subtlety is an unknow commodity, but the action leaps off the page, the characters are horribly solid, and the sense of life to be grabbed at and enjoyed is palpable [...]

    This is a light hearted beautifully written book The hero Mr Sponge is a delight and the description of the other characters and ways of life The fact that Mr Sponge passes his evenings reviewing the timetable of buses in London is just one of the funny things The description of the horses and their nasty nature and the toffs etc is brilliant Even the ending is a delight.

    There are parts that are genuinely hilarious and great then there are parts that are duller than washcloth Still think I enjoyed it though.
