When Cakes and Ale was first published in 1930 it roused a storm of controversy since many people imagined they recognised portraits of literary figures now no more. It is the novel for which Maugham wished to be remembered.

This one makes my BEST EVER TOP TEN LIST! The jokes are largely over my head British Humor - the writing clever and long, the plot long and Maughamly - what else would anyone want? A seaside, a romance, a writer coming and a writer going - London at the turn of the century... it's all there for the taking... Who knew such a bright side of the world could be painted by Maugham?

All right, though it went on and on a bit in parts. I liked the overall story and characters, but it felt like there was too much build-up for nothing in some cases.

This is not a great Maugham book but a good read.
