Nothing escapes the snooping opera glasses of Miss Elizabeth Mapp. She whiles away her busy hours observing the small English village of Tilling, and recording the antics in her notebook. But her observations are set to be disrupted by amorous advances of two retired army generals, both vying for her affection. With Miss Mapp distracted, who will keep Miss Susan Poppit in her place or oversee the correct playing of bridge? More importantly will quiet Tilling be subject to a violent duel?

Listener Opinions

    " One of the funniest books ever written. I've read it many times. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Betty | 2/15/2014

    " Kindle versions of a number of Benson's books are now available for free download, which is how I chanced upon this very humorous tale of venomous village life. But no one in Tilling can stay mad for long because they'd have no one left to wrangle with. So the intrigues continue. Laugh out loud stuff. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christine | 2/8/2014

    " Entertaining book set in 1930s (I think) England - in a small town. About the quirky characters who live there. It's a little annoying in places but a nice quick read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kaethe | 2/8/2014

    " Mapp and Lucia are hilarious creations. Because social-climbing and back-stabbing never get old. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Allison Paton | 1/29/2014

    " An absolutely wonderful read; if you like farce and fun, this is the author for you! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carol | 1/18/2014

    " Pure laugh out loud fun. This is the second time I have read it, and there were plenty of fresh laughs. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Meg | 12/15/2013

    " You know - I remember loving this book when I read it as a younger person. Now it just comes off as kind of mean. EF Benson clearly hates these people (and they are pretty loathsome). I might be going soft, but I kind of like to root for the folks I spend time with in the fictional world. Which is why I gave up on Entourage. To be fair, these people are far less loathsome than the dudebros on Entourage. But, I think I might be straining the comparison a bit. "

    " I like the characters but not the plot "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gemma Williams | 12/13/2013

    " This book introduces the nosy and scheming Miss Mapp and the eccentric inhabitants of Tilling, Quaint Irene being a special favourite of mine. Laugh out loud funny, and beautifully written, a pure pleasure. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lorena | 12/3/2013

    " Introducing Miss Mapp, Lucia's counterpart and soon-to-be nemesis from another village. Lucia isn't in this one, but it sets up the rest of the series beautifully and is hilarious in its own right, of course. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 James | 11/25/2013

    " I can't think of many things as seamlessly executed as these books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lauretta | 11/25/2013

    " I liked Elizabeth Mapp a bit better that the Lucia character in this series. But all are turn-of-last-century anglophilic humor and quite predictable story lines "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Esther | 7/11/2013

    " Spotted this on Bettie's list and thought I'd check it out - and it was worth it all right! Amazing cattiness and one-upmanship leads to hilarious consequences. I am definitely looking out for more of this series. My thanks to Bettie! "

    " Not funny to me. Wish I could find a book that would make me laugh. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Connie | 2/24/2013

    " This was about Miss Mapp and how she would sit in her garden room and watch all the people come and go on the High Street. She was involved in a lot of gossip in making it and also a topic. There were a lot of interesting characters and this author does write with some humor as well. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Irina | 1/7/2013

    " I'm reading the series for the 7th time and am currently reading this one. What fun! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bobbi | 10/23/2012

    " This series continues to entertain, but the introduction of Miss Mapp, who is a meaner-spirited character than Lucia, was not quite as enjoyable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Diana | 7/19/2012

    " I am a little embarrassed that I enjoy these silly novels about English village life in the 1920s so much, but it's kind of a relief to read something where nothing very bad ever happens and the characters do things like drink tea and erect elaborate tableaux vivants. A game of bridge, anyone? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Judy | 1/7/2012

    " Short exposition on a the faux pas resulting from choices made from snobbery rather than fact as a jumping-off point. Funny. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carey Combe | 9/20/2011

    " Love this a wonderful re-read "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Betty | 9/19/2011

    " An oldie, but very funny "
