Under the Greenwood Tree by Thomas Hardy
This is a book from the Victorian Collection, and so is rather old fashioned. There is a new parson and a new school mistress in the little village, and both make waves where-ever they go. The parson has upset the choir by bringing in an organ, for the new girl to play to the congregation, which the choir are not too keen about as they have passed down the choir going through their generations. Furthermore, one of the younger members of the choir has taken a fancy to the new girl and now has to figure out how to win her hand in marriage.
Although this book claims to be humourous in the depiction of the choir and the parson, I found that there was actually very little interaction between these two areas of the book, and most of the book was quite dreary and my mind wandered. Therefore, I would not rate this as a good book for a long commute, although the last CD or two picked up interest a little.
Thank you for looking
