I've lived in France for nine years and am well aware of the English ability to look down their noses at other cultures. It is not an endearing trait and I have no interest in buying light reading material to observe their abilities to criticize others.
Yes, I've read all the Francis books and treasure some of them yet, to give me moments of relief from current events. Not this one.
I was also of the opinion that Mr. Francis used the story as a vehicle to poke fun at different American activities.
The plot was interesting but I did not need the various observations of American behavior.
Yet... there's not totally a sense of impending dread as in a typical Francis novel. There are also points of tedium with more detail than necessary about historic American racecourses. A typical Francis book never gets tedious. It wasn't enough to thoroughly put me off; but enough that it makes the book more average vs good. Would be better to use those pages toward more in depth on other characters or plot.
Overall - a decent read; not great
