Description

It's no coincidence that there was a racing scene in My Fair Lady; the track has always been a place of social as well as equine movement, where fortunes are made and the nouveaux riches negotiate their perilous ascent up the class ladder. Rafiq was a great character, and it is clear that Jilly is not racist in any way - and in fact was trying to present Muslims in a good light - but it felt so tacked on to the rest of the story. was full of a lot of waffle, mostly perhaps because there were far too many characters and so to give them all a mention throughout the book just seemed to fill it up without really telling the story.

The name and the cover sounds pretty well, but when I started it off, all I felt was disappointment.As usual though, the story romps along through highs and lows, with lots of relevant detail about the horse-racing world, plus some bonkers goings-on that only Jilly Cooper can pull off.

As did the scene where the elderly Major snuck into a hotel room and took advantage of a very drunk actress, who mistakenly assumed in the dark that he was her partner. Took me ages to get used to all the characters in this book, I found myself having to go back to the index at the beginning to check who the people were time and time again. To read one of Cooper’s books is to escape into an alternative universe in which all is right with the world.The characters are poor faded shades of the vibrant witty loveable rogues she created in her earlier works (Riders and Polo being the best examples of these).
