Summer Reading Challenge: Sandy's Task – Read two books with main characters whose names are Lucy, Ricky, Fred or Ethel or derivatives of

The 39 Steps by John Buchan

My rating: 3 of 5 stars
What a peculiar book, I don't know why it became a classic but the ending was strangest of all. The main drift of the story became almost irrelevant and it almost seemed as if the author had lost the plot and decided to end the book before the situation became worse.

Definitely of it's era in descriptions and language and entertaining if slightly anti-climactic.

Another challenge complete and my points total so far is 245
