I love it! Julian draws the reader in with Pythonesque persuasion, a boon if you are a Monty Python fan , and flavors with deadpan delivery such ludicrously hilarious traditions as: Arrow Catching in the Staffordhire, Moorlands, and Matlock Bath Hairy Legs Competition in Melton Mowbray Spoon Balancing from Todmorden Cirencester Duck Quacking Festival Feather Balancing from Rye Those are just 5 of the 40 amusing traditions listed and expounded on in the book.

These traditions make me wonder WHY some are still going on, but tradition is tradition. Interesting, to say the least! While rummaging through NetGalley, I came across this one. Maybe the fifth time. I paid it little mind. Why would I? It held little promise. Plain as day, it just wasn't serious enough. That thought echoed, "Serious enough for what? For that, I enjoyed a good laugh at my own expense. Not the first time. A most recognizable voice inside me demanded, "Get the book Paul.
I listened and finally came to my senses. Now, about the book. Is it character-driven? Does it have a storyline?
