The scene of this entertaining story is laid in a charming English village. The plot centres round Miss Barbara Buncle, a maiden lady who was obliged to write a book because - as she naively explained - her dividends were so poor. Unfortunately, Miss Buncle had no imagination, so she wrote about her friends - quite kindly and truthfully, of course, for she was a benevolent and veracious soul.

The reactions of her friends to Miss Buncle's book, however, were a little surprising, and the far-reaching and unexpected results of its publication caused quite a stir.

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wendy | 1/9/2014

    " What a delightful book! Written in 1934 England the author creates a book within a book about the "simple" life in a small village. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dawna | 1/4/2014

    " A quaint and charming book about a quirky small town woman who writes a book about her quirky small town neighbors. The neighbors are in an uproar and life is never the same for anyone. It's a lighthearted and delightfully fun read. "

    " This was a cute, fun book and I would probably check out the next one in the series if my library carried it but they don't and I'm not willing to pay actual money for it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joan | 12/25/2013

    " This book left me ready to read the next one. I can't wait to revisit some new friends in the next novel. 1930's small village in England, one of my favorite places to be. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Phoebe Matthews | 12/12/2013

    " Every writer should read this hilarious book. It is an oldy but still true goody. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laurochka | 12/11/2013

    " My best friend gave it to me as a birthday present. I enjoyed every page of it. I laughed out loud several times. It's not a great work of literature (in the canonical sense) but it is really amusing! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kimberly | 12/1/2013

    " A thoroughly enjoyable light read, originally published in the '30s, without the objectionable content of so many contemporary novels. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nelly | 5/2/2013

    " I read this book a while ago, and I loved it. It's not particularly ambitious nor fast-paced, but it was just a charming, sweet, easy to read book that made me feel happy once I had finished. It was basically like a book version of a cup of tea. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 NC | 9/27/2012

    " Hurrah! DE Stevenson is back in print! This is a fabulous read. Charming and funny it is a wonderful escape to a cozy world. You will love to spend time here. I hope this means that more of Ms Stevenson's books will be available again. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary Jane | 6/22/2012

    " Wonderfully witty, comfortably cozy, heck of a good read. No one gets murdered; no bad language; no x-rating - an oddity in this day and age. This is a "pull up a comfortable chair on a rainy afternoon" kind of story. Hated to have it end, but, thank goodness, there is a sequel! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ramona | 3/26/2012

    " Loved this book, it was so fun to read and a really easy read. Felt quite inspired to write after this ! "

    " I got this book in our book club book exchange (thanks Jenny!) and really enjoyed it. It's fun, nothing too deep and serious but a good read and fun setting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janga | 12/20/2011

    " A charming book. Review will be posted next month at Just Janga. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jane | 5/4/2011

    " Cosy, cosy, cosy! Now on to the third in the series, The Two Mrs. Abbotts. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Barbara | 10/5/2010

    " Although I didn't like this one as much as Miss Buncle's Book, it was still good. I love D.E. Stevenson's books "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathy | 9/8/2010

    " Not as great as the prequel, but still worth the read if you enjoyed Miss Buncle's Book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Garnette | 1/15/2009

    " I completely enjoyed this book, especially Arthur Abbott. With the author's bows to Jane Austen, how could I not like it. Somehow, though, it was just a shade less satisfying than Miss Buncle. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Grillables | 5/4/2008

    " Good cozy English village comfort reading. [Read as part of the compendium: _Miss Buncle_, which contains both _Miss Buncle's Book_ and _Miss Buncle Married_] "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ruthi | 8/11/2007

    " This book is definitely light hearted reading, full of innuendos and dry humor. I have re-read it several times. "
