free read The Shooting Party Isabel Colegate é 3 summary review The Shooting Party Ö eBook or Kindle ePUB Up of men and women gather at Sir Randolph Nettleby's estate for a shooting party Opulent adulterous moving assuredly. With a light deft touch Isabel Colgate explores the autumn of Edwardian England as encapsulated in a country shooting party It s the fall of 1913 and Sir Randolph Nettleby is hosting an assortment of well heeled guests at his country estate for a weekend of shooting gossip and mild intrigue There s class conflict subtle love stories a missing pet duck unforgivable egos and a wandering animal rights activist who oddly enough immediately hits it off with Sir Randolph The temptation for slapstick is as great as the temptation for one dimensional stereotypes fortunately for us Colgate has too much restraint and skill Imagine the wit and satire of Gosford Park enriched with the poignancy of a passing way of life made poignant by the shadow of the larger shooting party that was to start across Europe the next year Colgate s prose is wonderful clear clean and subtle like the particular glow of twilight that suffuses the landscape in warmth while at the same time illuminating things from angles you d rather not see Best of all it s short and made me laugh out loud even though it s serious than humorous
