Gaudy Night (Lord Peter Wimsey, #12)Gaudy Night by Dorothy L. Sayers


I am not sure how many times I have read this book but it never gets old. It is the first book to introduce me to Oxford in such glorious detail. I have been hungry for more info ever since, that was a long time ago. I didn’t get to visit Oxford when I went to the UK, I had little time but I wish I did.

It also finally gives me the ending I wanted between Peter and Harriet, yes there was a tangle of a mystery that they had to solve and it was a mind bender of chore. But the romance really was tested in this one, and I enjoyed both the emotion and the intellect involved in it.

In fact I think it is fascinating that we are still facing this question of how a woman should be in the 21st century. It is such a strange thing, no one questions if a man can be both heart and mind, even though it is just as much a battle (sometimes more so) for a man as it is for a woman. It poses some questions that still ring true today.

As usual Dorothy Sayers pulls your brain apart in several different directions and throws in languages that most people don’t know like Latin and Greek. At least I understood the French. The world has changed I remember the first time I went to the library to get the translations and now I just plug them into Google.

Sayers challenges you but she gives you the pleasure of a good hunt, with some lovely romance thrown in. Very much worth it, especially with the world as it is right now.
