Reading List and Book Reviews

Mr. Sponge's Sporting Tour
by Robert Smith Surtees
Brilliant satire. Foxhunting in England in the 1800's.

Some Experiences of an Irish R.M.
by Edith Somerville and Martin Ross
Don't judge a book by its title. This is a very funny book, full of stories about hunting in Ireland in the late 1800's.

Don't Trample the Dogs
by Michael Sinclair-Smith
Humorous book about modern foxhunting in Ireland. This book is light on text and heavy on illustrations, but it still took some of us over a year to finish.

by Jilly Cooper
As one reviewer succinctly put it 'Sex and horses: who could ask for more?'.

by Jilly Cooper
In Jump!, Jilly Cooper enters the world of jump racing. Unfortunately, she spends the first half of the book trying (unsuccessfully) to convince us that old women who like gardening can still be sexy (my apologies to all the gardeners out there). But in the last half of the book, Jilly Cooper shows that she's still got it (even if she is an old woman who, presumably, likes gardening).

Horse Heaven
by Jane Smiley
I laughed, I cried, I wanted to take Justa Bob home with me.

French Relations and Well Groomed
by Fiona Walker
Not as good as Jilly Cooper, but still fun reads.
