Comedy of Manners, aka Rich People Problems
This was a pleasant listen; seems other readers were annoyed with the details, but for me, those meticulously catalogued particulars were what made the book enjoyable.
The plot is as thin as consomme, and the narrator sounds far too mature to be the voice of a young 30-ish protagonist, but I still relished it, maybe because I've personally been the unwitting guest at similarly-situated country house weekends. The author truly does capture the almost-silly atmosphere of high-status people gathered together pretending to be...normal?
If you're as fascinated with social nuances as I am, I think you'll like this book.
But if you're looking for a strong story, or a romance...you'll probably want to pass on this one.

What would have made The Suitors better?
The book needed a plot. The book is about 3/4 descriptive details about the house,dinners, napkins, food....so boring. Very little conversation, nothing exciting.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
