John Macnab

john macnab john buchanJohn Macnab by John Buchan, 5/5

In this charming tale, four eminent English gentlemen combat crippling ennui with a roguish poaching wager that shocks the countryside.  Buchan’s writing style is delightful and, though the story flags a bit in the fourth quarter, it ends strong.

[Why I read it: Already a fan of Buchan’s Hannay stories, I jumped at the chance to read an unfamiliar book by him when I saw it at the thrift store.]
