Mr Finchley traipses across the country, soaking in nature, meeting interesting people and having a series of unforeseen adventures. He falls in with tramps, artists, travellers, and gypsies, ends up taking jobs at a fair and selling petrol, being mistaken for a vagrant and a lunatic, is almost strangled, plays cricket and even takes to smuggling! His adventures change his life completely, so much so that there is likely to be a change in his everyday life too.
This was such a fun, charming read, with gentle humour and a very likeable set of characters. Something like Three Men in a Boat but without the slapstick. What I really liked about Mr Finchley as a character was how open he was to each new adventure, to each new experience, and how ready he was to enjoy every thing that came his way, irked sometimes only initially , but never complaining or grumbling much, rather relishing every moment.
I also loved how away from grey London, Mr Finchley gets to really immerse himself in nature, whether it be the birds around, or the sea, or the moors, there is a certain peace about the places he spends time at which transfers itself to the reader as well.
Looking forward to more in the future. The book was published on 18 April !
Holiday at Belmont in Lyme Regis, Dorset | The Landmark Trust
Finchley who serves as clerk for a London firm finds himself taking a 3-week vacation for the first time in years. The new manager insisted he take it. He books himself for a trip to Margate, but from the beginning of his trip things take a strange turn. Finchley finds himself in one adventure after another.
Finchley is not one to be on the wrong side of the law, but he finds himself skirting it on several occasions because he is too trusting of shady characters he encounters along Mr. Finchley is not one to be on the wrong side of the law, but he finds himself skirting it on several occasions because he is too trusting of shady characters he encounters along the way. The humor comes mostly from seeing what one considers a straight-laced person in the situations in which he finds himself.
He learns quite a bit about himself along the way. The novel is not a new one. It first appeared in print in Although I enjoyed the book, I found it was one I could easily put down. I received an electronic galley in exchange for an honest review of the book. I received this from Netgalley.

That was kind of fun. Apr 16, paulinereidbookreviewer rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Ellen Read. Book Review. Publishing date - 18 April This is Book 1 of a trilogy. Edgar Finchley, 45, lived in London and has been chief clerk for 10 years and has never been on a holiday. Mr Bardwell, his employer died and Mr Sprake is now in charge. Crunch time came when Mr Sprake called Edgar into the office Edgar was told he HAD to go on holiday. Edgar found this strange as he has never been on holiday before. Edgar was passing time before his train arrived, so he sat on a bench, a driver of a Bently drove up and asked Edgar to mind his car, he had some business to sort out, and he seemed like a trustworthy man.
This is the start of a trip of a lifetime for Mr Finchley, little did he know what was infront of him. Does he make it out alive? Or is he eaten and fed to the wolves? Or does the smuggler on the boat call it quits?

Well as you can tell by my description of the goings on in this book, you kind of know where this is heading Well, well, well I say in a policemans tone, rocking back and forth, hands behind my back this book kept me entertained for hours, it sort of reminds me of and old fashion chase through England, but, The Thirty- Nine Steps by John Buchan style.
Before we even know it a car chase is happening, an escapade from a house that Mr Finchley knew nothing of, he meets a maid that conned him and left him without a car, he sported a black eye from a gipsy that thought he was someone else , he finds himself at a circus, meets and ends up with some Scottish men playing bagpipes and goes on a boat way yonder there. I wont tell you if he gets sea sick, but my eye brows raised when he swam around the boat to get two eggs Although you would think this is a fast paced book I preferred it this way, as it suits the style, and the era.
It flowed continuously emerging into a calming pond, not rush, rush, breaking the waves crashing down style. I recommend this book to anyone who likes an adventure in their books, who likes old fashioned light humour, who likes the English countryside and anyone who likes chase on chase action packed book with a slow, serene pace. The cover attracted my attention and I decided to read it even though it is not a mystery. I found an easy, humorous, and fast moving story.
Edgar Finchley is a clerk who at 45 years old has never had a vacation. He is told to take a 3 week holiday and has plans to spend it at a resort near the sea. While waiting for the train, Mr. Finchley falls asleep in a Bentley. He is wakened when the car was evading the police's at high speeds. He ends up spending the night at the headquarters of the gang. His friend's promises are not honored and he needs help to leave the gang. After success, he decides to explore England and buy a dilapidated bicycle and takes off on his own to visit new places.
He will experience meeting the gypsies, almost choke to death, liars, religion, smuggling, and is mistaken for an escaped mental patient.
He will learn to sleep in barns and strange places and to eat strange food. There is even a touch of romance. The is the first book in a group of three. It was originally published in the s and had immediate success. I want to read the other 2 books. Disclosure: Thanks to Farrago for a copy through NetGalley. The opinions expressed are my own.
icrecate.cf This was a fun and humorous read. This book is a re-release from the 's, I believe. It is slight mystery with some laugh out loud moments. Many thanks to netgalley and Farrago for this advanced readers copy. Apr 03, Mary S.
Many thanks to the publisher, Farrago! Some adult fiction humor I'm anticipating! This is a gorgeous story, set in more innocent times,, with quaint chapter headings ,using educated language and terminology to a higher standard,that is not seen today. This book is about the joy of serendipity, the freedom of no plans, but having money and the desire to travel around the English countryside,meeting the various oddballs that inhabit this space. Not all are honest, many are rogues or Gentlemen of the road, but all have life experiences that they are willing to share.
Edgar This is a gorgeous story, set in more innocent times,, with quaint chapter headings ,using educated language and terminology to a higher standard,that is not seen today. Edgar Finchley is a clerk, and hasn't had an annual holiday for 10 years, a concept that is totally alien in modern times. When he is given three weeks off, his immediate thought is to go to Margate, stay in a boarding house and just pootle about town.
However, he becomes embroiled with car thieves, held hostage, fights with tramps, gets invited to tea with Gypsies, is mistaken for an escaped mental patient, gets casual work at a garage and village fair,and generally has a grand old time!! He packs an awful amount of living into his holiday,but the joy and delights of those halcyon days are very well described. The terminology is dated, but of its time,and is appropriate ,but is non PC in these modern times. It is pure happiness and escapism, makes you smile and want to read the others in this series!
I throughly loved this book and enjoyed many appreciative giggles! It brought back many happy memories! Apr 20, Jennifer C rated it it was amazing Shelves: netgalley , read.
If you enjoyed the Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry, you will love this book. This book was written before WWII and has the wholesome charm of that era. That trip has him meeting and interacting with many interesting characters all of which I throughly enjoyed meeting. It also shows he adventures that can be found by being spontaneous.
