NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • "A novel to cure your Downton Abbey withdrawal . . . a delightful story about nontraditional romantic relationships, class snobbery and the everybody-knows-everybody complications of living in a small community."-The Washington Post The bestselling author of Major Pettigrew's Last Stand returns with a breathtaking novel of love on the eve of World War I that reaches far beyond the small English town in which it is set. NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY THE WASHINGTON POST AND NPR East Sussex, 1914. It is the end of England's brief Edwardian summer, and everyone agrees that the weather has never been so beautiful. Hugh Grange, down from his medical studies, is visiting his Aunt Agatha, who lives with her husband in the small, idyllic coastal town of Rye. Agatha's husband works in the Foreign Office, and she is certain he will ensure that the recent saber rattling over the Balkans won't come to anything. And Agatha has more immediate concerns; she has just risked her carefully built reputation by pushing for the appointment of a woman to replace the Latin master. When Beatrice Nash arrives with one trunk and several large crates of books, it is clear she is significantly more freethinking-and attractive-than anyone believes a Latin teacher should be. For her part, mourning the death of her beloved father, who has left her penniless, Beatrice simply wants to be left alone to pursue her teaching and writing. But just as Beatrice comes alive to the beauty of the Sussex landscape and the colorful characters who populate Rye, the perfect summer is about to end. For despite Agatha's reassurances, the unimaginable is coming. Soon the limits of progress, and the old ways, will be tested as this small Sussex town and its inhabitants go to war. Praise for The Summer Before the War "What begins as a study of a small-town society becomes a compelling account of war and its aftermath."-Woman's Day "This witty character study of how a small English town reacts to the 1914 arrival of its first female teacher offers gentle humor wrapped in a hauntingly detailed story."-Good Housekeeping "Perfect for readers in a post-Downton Abbey slump . . . The gently teasing banter between two kindred spirits edging slowly into love is as delicately crafted as a bone-china teacup. . . . More than a high-toned romantic reverie for Anglophiles-though it serves the latter purpose, too."-The Seattle Times
There are all sorts of idiots we have to work with every day. Every office has them. Fortunately for most of us idiots in the work place are few and far between. However, Hogsbottom Plugs, "the home of bath plugs", has a higher concentration than other work places - from the MD down to the cleaner, they're all idiots. Hear the trials and tribulations of this idiotic workforce as they explain their recent life events through reviews of things they've brought. There's Donald, who try as hard as does simply cannot get the office junior to notice him, let alone drink some of his special, sleeping-tablet-laden tea. Learn how Jeff gets his own back on the people who mock him by re-enacting a video he saw on YouTube involving seagulls and watch on in horror as the overworked cleaner tries to solve the mystery of who is making his job of cleaning the toilets worse than a job cleaning toilets is already. If you've ever worked in an office, then this is the book for you. You'll recognize the office sex pest, the liar and the moaning admin worker who's been there longer than the chairs. Written in the form of product reviews, The Office Idiot Reviews is the second in the series of Idiot Review Books from Pete Sortwell. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Chris Dabbs.

More Office Idiot Reviews It's been just over a year since we last visited Hogsbottom Plugs, and there's been lots of change. Jeff no longer has an obsession with Westlife or The Jackson Five. Hogsbottom has brought in a lawyer with a height complex and a dodgy bowel to help him sell the company, so he can leave his wife and live with his mistress, who is also Jeff's mother. The question is: will Hogsbottom be able to get the sale though without Jeff finding out and ruining the future for everyone? With fire alarms going off on a daily basis, strange items being thrown across the office, and burning mattresses falling from the top floor, join all the idiots from the office as they bumble their way through another year of office idiocy. 1.
