Book Review: Rogue Male, Geoffrey Household

20140901-132534.jpgI picked up this book on holiday, a victim of the “suggested reading” table at Waterstones. Written in 1939, this novel follows the plight of an English gentleman who attempts to assassinate a leading political figure abroad (likely Hitler) and is caught. It’s a compelling read and I enjoyed the occasional humour about the gentleman and his class, alongside the grim reality of his plight whilst on the run. Apparently, a sequel has been written as if narrated by the gentleman’s friend Saul, to be published later this year – that makes me think this book was “suggested” for commercial reasons rather than its status as a classic book.
