"One of the things I appreciate most about this novel is the way that it sequentially portrays three unusual situations and lays bare their inherent absurdity."

My review of 'Scoop' by Evelyn Waugh is up on the John C Adams Reviews website now!

I absolutely loved this little book! Ridiculous from start to finish, but in a good way......exposing all of the befuddled disconnectedness of not only Fleet Street press, but upper crust London Society and the landed (but broke) gentry. One blunder after another in the most ridiculous set of circumstances finds our hero(?) William Boot yanked from the comfort of his run-down country estate and plunged headlong into a political war in Africa.....nothing is as it seems....and for once, lack of initiative actually saves the day. I cannot say how many times i chuckled out loud as i read this.....nor can i say when the last time was i read a book that caused me to chuckle out loud over and over! Waugh hits this with a biting wit and allows these absolutely ridiculous (yet believable) people to thrive in their self-induced chaos, and we are just along for the ride. So glad to have read this. Thank you Evelyn Waugh! ( )

Eh, this fairly decent satire on journalism turns out to be a One Big Meh in my headline. It is not even that funny. The humorous moments mostly pile themselves at the start and the end where it sandwiches a droll and dull war in a fictional place with a very weird unrequited romance in tow. By the time it picks up again, with its characters that almost feel like puppets instead of people, my attention is barely there. And I also find it difficult to ignore Waugh’s downplayed but still apparent anti-semitism and racist slurs that I can’t believe this is the same author who wrote Brideshead Revisited. On my bed rests a copy of Vile Bodies currently. Oh well let’s hope Waugh isn’t very vile in that one. ( )

Although incredibly politically incorrect, Waugh's send up of Fleet Street journalism is very funny, and still relevant 82 years later. ( )

I loved this book.
It has a special sophisticated sense of humour that tickled me. It felt intellectual, but easy to read. The characters were like beautiful complex works of art. The plot was light hearted and amusing. I was able to read a little each night without getting confused or having to read back to remember. It was a book that really came to life.
At first I was confused by it, it was almost like I didn't know how to read it. I think this might have been because the pacing and the flow were different to what I’m used to. However, actually I think that this was one of the books strong points. It drew you in. It didn't feel like anything else I had ever read.

Why, once Jakes went out to cover a revolution in one of the Balkan capitals. He overslept in his carriage, woke up at the wrong station, didn't know any different, got out, went straight to a hotel, and cabled off a thousand-word story about barricades in the streets, flaming churches, machine guns answering the rattle of his typewriter as he wrote, a dead child, like a broken doll, spreadeagled in the deserted roadway before his window - you know.
There was something un-English and not quite right about 'the country', with its solitude and self-sufficiency, its bloody recreations, its darkness and silence and sudden, inexplicable noises; the kind of place where you never know from one minute to the next that you may not be tossed by a bull or pitchforked by a yokel or rolled over and broken up by a pack of hounds.
'Feather-footed through the plashy fen passes the questing vole...'
