Review of 'Whose Body? (Lord Peter Wimsey, #1)' on 'Goodreads'

3 stars

It's a light text with an 'okay' mystery and a heck of a gravity problem - very hard to pick up, easy to put down. Sayers misses the mark by failing to include anything interesting about any of her characters until the mid-point of the novel. Once Lord Peter gathers some substance about him, the story becomes more interesting even if the mystery is not improved.

It doesn't inspire me to read further in the series.
