Titmuss Regained by John Mortimer
_ This was a book that I started over a month ago but stopped reading it when we had the family tradgey of my brother's death. So it was good to pick it up again and finish it. I must admit when I origanlly picked up the book for 50p on the second hand book stall in the market I thought it was about Rumpole, (there was no dust cover), but this is not the case.
It is typical British politicial satire and black humur involving planning regulations, nature reserves and new towns. It contrasts fantastically with the The Road to Omaha by Robert Ludlum which is an American version of the same thing though in that case it is all about the military and not housing developers.
The main star of the novel is British politician Leslie Titmuss who finds himself at an impasse between personal interest and political beliefs when his home turf, Rapstone Valley, is proposed as the site of a huge new town development.
It is a funny book and I am pleased I bothered to finsih it. So week 21 written book 17 audio book 7 – Total 24
