Summary

A wonderfully amusing and engaging account of the escapades of a naive student thrown into university life amongst the hallowed halls of Oxford c. 1850. Widely regarded as a comic masterpiece of its time (it sold over 200,000 copies) it brings to mind the writing of Jerome K Jerome or an adventure PG Woodhouse might have penned for a slightly more academic Bertie Wooster. Cuthbert Bede, B.A. is the nom de plume of the Rev. Edward Bradley.

Wonderful and witty writing

The reader does a marvelous job with the different characters. And the writer has given us a young man for whom we can feel affection, even as we laugh at him ,perhaps remembering our own foolish youth.
