The beautiful, flirtatious Zuleika has the dons and undergraduates of Oxford University literally lining up to die for her in this biting tragic-comic satire.

Modern but Dated

Although the length of a novel, the book feels like a long short story or novella and it is a bit more of an allegory instead of a novel. Although written in the Edwardian age, the writing is essentially modern and humorously examines the power of celebrity and the foolishness of society, even among wise individuals. This is one of the books listed on the greats of modern fiction because it was a first and ahead of its time. It still reads as modern, but. in the age of Instagram, the allegory has lost its power.

I modestly enjoyed the story, but it was much longer than necessary, and I would only recommend it to those interested in the history of modern fiction.

The narration is clear and understandable but Flo Gibson does not have a voice that lends itself to Edwardian English.

The accents and varied voices of the reader are truly horrible

This lady’s imitation of English accents hurts ones ears as does the affected lilting and false drama.

Very tiresome - I gave up

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

English Lit students maybe, looking at the history of novels. I think most modern readers would not be interested.

Has Zuleika Dobson put you off other books in this genre?

It's put me off taking much notice of top hundred lists of novels.

How could the performance have been better?

Saying Zed instead of Zee would have helped with an English novel.

What character would you cut from Zuleika Dobson?

Both the main characters are very tiresome. I think they are meant to be, but it is not funny enough to make this work.

Any additional comments?

For humour and parody try Anthony Powell or Evelyn Waugh instead.
