Dear friend who told me to try these books because they‘re right up my alley: No, they‘re not. Especially not this clunky German translation. If, however, you are really into anglophile clichees set in a picturesque Cotswold village (it‘s in the Cotswolds. And it‘s picturesque. And English. Very English.), this ... is still not that great, tbh. It might just be the translation, though. Has anyone read these in the original?
