Flora has been expensively educated to do everything but earn her own living. When she is orphaned at 20, she decides her only option is to go and live with her relatives, the Starkadders, at Cold Comfort Farm. What relatives though. Flora feels it incumbent upon her to bring order into the chaos.

    Emma de Jane Austen (ncgraham)
    ncgraham: Flora is very clearly modeled on Emma.

    Northanger Abbey de Jane Austen (ncgraham)
    ncgraham: Another brilliant parody.

    The Grand Sophy de Georgette Heyer (Bjace)
    Bjace: While it's not in the same genre, the books are similiar. Both Sophy and Flora Post are Miss Fix-its, whose practical, problem-solving approach to life is a contrast to the silliness of their relatives. Also, both are delightful reads in different ways.

    The Rainbow de D. H. Lawrence (thorold)
    thorold: The Rainbow is a great novel that's well worth reading for its own sake, but it's also the supreme example of the over-portentous way of writing about the countryside that makes the parody in Cold Comfort Farm so hilarious.

Rereading it is just as satisfying as the last time. Funny, pragmatic Flora Poste sets out to organize her wayward farm relatives into better lives, and no gothic language or leering darkness will get in her way. Stella Gibbons has a thing or two to teach the Price and Prejudice and Zombies crowd about truly biting parody. ( )

Cold Comfort Farm definitely offers an impressive Happily Ever After story,
yet it is barely funny, and only enlivened by the movie featuring Rufus Sewell. ( )

A quick re-read after watching the excellent 1995 BBC tv adaptation (only available on DVD alas). Whilst it can be read in it's own right as a witty and funny story of a clever city girl "tidying up" the very messy lives of her country cousins, it's better if you realise it's a satire on the novels of rural gloom that were popular at the time of writing - complete with ** marking the particularly satirical passages as explained in the introduction dedicated to a fictional author in that genre. Also notable is this is the source of the saying "something nasty in the woodshed". Great fun.
(And do watch the film if you can - Ian McKellern, Eileen Atkins, Stephen Fry, Joanna Lumley, Rufus Sewell, Miriam Margoyles, Kate Beckinsale - all star cast!) ( )

Amusing and colorful, but the “near future” setting was jarring. The book was published in 1932, and the events took place sometime in the 1950s, but apart from WWII never happening, lots of private planes, and one scene with a videophone, it was clearly 1930s upper-class society. Did it need to be set in the future to give Flora more freedom and independence? ( )

Parody of eh..? i'm not sure quite what specifically, just those manor house sort of novels. A lazy woman decides to mooch off her distant relatives but finding that they live in a pretty bleak and miserable condition she decides to do them a favor (against their will) and sort them out. Its a little too pat, things work out just a little too easily but still quite funny. ( )

The education bestowed upon Flora Poste by her parents had been expensive, athletic and prolonged; and when they died within a few weeks of one another during the annual epidemic of influenza or Spanish Plague which occured in her twentieth year, she was discovered to possess every art and grace save that of earning her own living.
To Anthony Pookworthy, Esq., A.B.S., L.L.R. My dear Tony, It is with something more than the natural deference of a tyro at the loveliest, most arduous and perverse of the arts in the presence of a master-craftsman that I lay this book before you. (From the Foreword)
