あらすじ・解説

In this completely revised and updated edition of international best seller Watching the English, anthropologist Kate Fox takes a revealing look at the quirks, habits and foibles of the English people.

Now with new survey data to add weight to her original fieldwork findings, and more extensive field-research and experiments to back up earlier observations, Kate Fox has deciphered yet more enigmatic behaviour codes, adding new rules, new subcultures, new chapters and more than 100 updates. If you're English, this new edition of Kate Fox's acclaimed international best seller will make you stand back and re-examine everything you take for granted - and if you aren't English you'll finally understand all our peculiar little ways.

Watching the English has sold more than half a million copies and has been translated into many languages. Not only a worldwide best seller, but also a set text for university anthropology courses, Watching the English has been widely praised as a revealing and entertaining dissection of the English national character.

mistitled - middle class guide to English classes

Somewhat funny, and genuinely interesting at points but less of a guide to Englishness as a national identity and more an antiquated guide to Middle class perceptions of the English class system. More specifically an anecdotal view of English class from the perspective of a semi-autistic highly educated, proud middle class woman with some outdated prejudices for contemporary audiences. I found it a bit dull when I thought it ironic and satirical but found it much funnier when I realised it was written seriously, if a little tongue in cheek, after a quick Google of the author.

Awful narration

I’d read the book before and thought it reasonably entertaining so got the audiobook to listen while driving. I’m glad I did it that way round as I would not have been able to read the book with the memory of the narrator’s insufferably arch and patronising tone. Just awful. I simply cannot get past the first 30 minutes and 20 minutes of that has been through gritted teeth.

Compulsory reading for anyone in England

This book made me laugh aloud at various points. As a foreigner living in England, this book should be required reading for anyone living here; including the natives
