Review Text

  • By Anna KV on 20 December 2013

    I had the first book (Miss Buncle's book) for many years and had never managed to track down the sequel. Miss Buncle wrote her book to make some money but, not being what she called 'imaginative' used the characters in her village. The first book ends with her marrying her publisher and moving - just before the villagers come to call her to account. This sequel deals with her being afraid to write another book as she doesn't want to move again, having used people in her new situation as her characters.The book won't appeal to anyone who likes lots of action and a thrilling storyline. Those of us who prefer to read well-written and happy stories about people we could meet anywhere, doing things we might do ourselves but with more interesting consequences, will enjoy it very much.

    First let me say that I love Miss Buncle's Book. It is witty, fast-paced and fun. This sequel was also a lot of fun to read, but in my opinion lacks some of the characterizations and coherence of the first book. Barbara Buncle has grown up rather a lot, is happily married, contented - and the excitement of the story suffers from that. Her new neighbours are also less zany than those in the first book. That said, I enjoyed reading it, as I have enjoyed the many D E Stevenson books I have read.

    When, at the end of the charming and heartwarming Miss Buncle's Book Miss Buncle was whisked off to the delights of married life, every reader will have cried: "But what happened next?". And here is the answer, rescued from its long out of print status by those kind people at Persephone.At first one fears a little. Miss Buncle is happy, but she is living in Hampstead Heath, going to bridge parties, and being slightly ground down by her husband's efficient but unlikeable staff. But a decision to move house carries her to the charming Wandlebury, a delicious Georgian house of tumbledown charms, and some new, fascinating neighbours for her to mentally anatomise. Will she resist the temptation to turn them into grist for the "new John Smith" as Mr Abbott's publishing colleagues (and the business minded portion of himself) would wish? Will the Big House be left to the right person? Will Barbara succeed in her romantic schemes for two of her new friends? The fascinating answers lie in store ... Rest assured however that in Wandlebury, as in Copperfield/Silverstream, people basically get what they deserve!I rarely find sequels satisfactory - this one is the pleasant exception which proves the rule; and leaves one longing for Miss Buncle 3 (and yes, there is such a thing!). Next summer, please, Persephone?

    I should probably start by saying that although this isn't as good as Miss Buncle's Book it was still an enjoyable book to read, but you may find this book disappointing if you are expecting another Miss Buncle's Book.The charm of the first book was mainly due to the characters in the village where Miss Buncle lived and the wonderful and ridiculous situations which arose as a result of Miss Buncle writing a book about them. In Miss Buncle Married, Miss Buncle has, as you would expect from the title, got married and moved away from the village she wrote about. Most of the book focuses on Miss Buncle and her new husband and one or two close friends and relations. There's the occasional scene which involves a large group of people and then the book briefly captures the spark of the original, but these scenes occur all too rarely. It's less amusing to read about Miss Buncle and her marriage because Miss Buncle and her husband are nice people and it's therefore much harder to laugh at them. Having said that, this was still a nice, gentle, warm book to read and I hope that Persephone decide to reissue The two Mrs Abbotts which is the third and final Miss Buncle book.
