    1 thought on “The Widening Stain”

    1. It's a mystery novel set at Cornell University, what's not to love? The first few chapters are brilliant -- I was laughing constantly at the commentary on libraries and academia in general. I do believe the rest of the book is well-written, but I just can't get into mystery novels, so I found myself rather annoyed by all the excessive mental wanderings through most of the book (just not my genre). Any Cornellians out there should definitely give it a go, though, it's a quick read.

    2. A well-written tongue in cheek mystery. I really enjoyed this being set at a stodgy ivy league college. Well worth the time as the language is very enjoyable.

    3. Knowing well libraries, faculty, and Cornell, and that Morris Bishop (best known for his history of Cornell) had written this, I may have had my expectations too high. But I found this extremely dated, with characters fairly unbelievable even projecting back to when it was written in the 1940s. The writing is heavy-handed and stolid, the only light touch being in the limericks tossed about in the text. Quite disappointing.

    4. I wish I'd read a better edition than this cheap self-published-looking thing, but at least it was free. Fun if dated mystery in an academic setting. Easily my favorite part was when many of the characters coincidentally went to an art-song concert; a soprano gesturing at the accompanist as if he were "an imbecile cousin" is entirely believable.

    5. This was supposed to be a chance to read a "classic" vintage mystery by a witty author but it was actually a reminder of why no one writes like this anymore. A very dated, supposedly satirical plot-I guess you had to be around in the 30s to appreciate it. At least it was short
