Looking Back... In an effort to transfer my book journal entries over to this blog, I'm going to attempt to post (in chronological order) an entry every Friday. I may or may not add extra commentary to what I jotted down in these journals.
Bachelor Brothers' Bed & Breakfast Pillow Book by Bill Richardson
1995 St. Martin's Griffin
Finished in January 1998
Rating: 2/5 (Fair)
In this zany companion to Bachelor Brothers' Bed & Breakfast, those bookish twins, Hector and Virgil, are back to tempt with a smorgasbord of literary delectables, spicy tales, and close encounters with the splendid and decadent. This time around, the events at the brothers' bed & breakfast--a haven for bibliophiles--involve Caedmon Harkness, a mysterious handyman/hagiographer; the loquacious parrot, Mrs. Rochester; June and Rae, proprietors of The Well of Loneliness coffee shop; and verse by Solomon solomon, the heralded local bard. Intellectual tomfoolery, scrumptious recipes, and madcap characters unite in this return to sublime isolation at the Bachelor Brothers' B&B.
My Original Notes (1998):
Pretty good, but not as good as the first of his. I skimmed some of the anecdotes. They weren't quite as funny as those in the first book. I'd recommend Bachelor Brothers' Bed and Breakfast over this one.
My Current Thoughts:
I no longer own a copy of this sequel, but I'm eager to reread the first novel, which I wrote about here.
