Remember, this is a dated book, so if you are looking for things that are modern, this is not your choice. If you can suspend belief and go back in time to the era of Archie and Wolfe, then I believe this book will be an enjoyable read for you.
I enjoy these period piece novels. The stories hold up well. However, I really enjoy the quirky character of Nero Wolfe who is obese, set in his ways, enjoys his orchids more than most people, and really knows how to appreciate food and drink. I love the fact that he is a reader and considers himself a genius.
