Red House Mystery | A A Milne
post image

Interesting introduction by A.A. Milne to his novel The Red House Mystery regarding what makes a good detective story.
A.A. Milne is best known as the author of Winnie-the-Pooh. However he was well known playwright and poet before his earlier work was overshadowed by his children's books success.

Pickpick

I originally read this novel on holiday back in 2003. I re read it recently and found it to be entertaining chick lit. A little more high brow than the average and both a number of laugh out loud and poignant moments make this an enjoyable light read. 3.5/5

Jess_Read_This Agreed! I had a similar experience and find myself picking this one up now and again for a reread. 6y

My book haul for today! I have read The Housekeeper and the Professor before, but only an ebook version. Loved it, so wanted a tree book version of it for my shelves.
