Whose Body by Dorothy L Sayers
It's always interesting reading the first book of a series – seeing the author's thought-processes and the way they start working out their characters.
Whose Body is the first novel in the series by Sayer featuring Lord Peter Whimsy.
Lord Peter is a man of many interests, one of which is crime, in which he dabbles here and there.
He's called on to do a little bit more than dabbling when a body is found in the bathtub of a respectable family.
I was very curious to read Whose Body – I've been a longtime fan of Agatha Christie, and I enjoy finding crime authors from the same era.
Whose Body is a short novel and – for me – didn't really pack a big punch, although it was readable, and I enjoyed the characters.
As I understand it, Sayers' novels improve greatly and because it is a time-period I love reading about, I spent a very pleasant few hours with Whose Body.
For me; it was enjoyable and diverting rather than outstanding, but I am looking forward to reading more of Sayers' novels – I liked her writing style very much. :)
