    1. Mark on said:

      Undeservedly obscure, this book kicks off the series of novels that follow Bartholomew Bandy and his military exploits from WWI through WWII The stolid and cheerful Bandy, son of a rural Canadian pastor, finds himself shipped off to Europe to serve in the infantry, armed with much advice about protecting his feet and strict parental commands to abstain from alcohol, tobacco and sex He promises to do so He tries to keep his promises, but he fails through a series of accidents or through the gener [...]

      That was a fun little romp.Jack delivers some great anecdotes filled with dead pan humour This collection chronicles the adventures of Bart Bandy, the son of a philandering preacher, stationed in Britain during WWI Many of the situations Bandy finds himself are literally laugh out loud funny The only major drawback though,this really is just a sequential array of stories that lack any cohesive narrative between None the less, a nicely written read filled with lots of good woody words to chew on.

      For fans of Flashman , Biggles , and Inspector Clouseau or maybe even, Inspector Gadget.Bart Bandy is the anti hero who comes up trumps I kept imaging Bart in the visage of Rik Mayall s Lord Flashheart from the Blackadder series.Further review here melisendeslibrary

    4. Lynn Dove on said:

      Quirky, laugh out loud exploits of one of the most endearing, bumbling characters I have ever come across in a book He is Mr Bean, all three of the Stooges and Red Skelton rolled into one He is also Canadian Great Read

    5. Maria Beltrami on said:

      Bartholomew Bandy una specie di Candide Come Candide viene dall America del Nord, per la precisione dal Canada, vista come luogo dove sopravvive ancora una certa onest di pensiero Figlio di un pastore bigotto e morigerato, parte per la guerra con la sua faccia da cavallo e la sua totale incompetenza sociale, che gli fa dire e fare tutto ci che gli passa per la testa con la massima goffaggine e senza un secondo pensiero Tra avventure esilaranti che ricordano un po il mitico Barone di M chausen e [...]

    6. Emma on said:

      This is a re issue of an old series from the seventies, but I loved this tale of teetotal Bartholomew Bandy, prone to calamity, but devout and stalwart He manages to find danger wherever he goes but his adventures grip and amuse in equal measure

    7. Roger Neilson on said:

      An interesting discovery, Bandy is an innocent abroad who isn t actually that innocent Fun reading, a whole series to look forward to P G Woodhouse meets Evelyn Waugh sort of

    8. Peter Staadecker on said:

      As several previous commentators have said undeservedly obscure a lovely series of laugh out loud books.

    9. Sid Nuncius on said:

      I enjoyed Three Cheers For Me a good deal than I expected to I tried it because P.G Wodehouse thought highly of it, but I didn t really know whether I would like it In fact after a rather tedious opening chapter or two , I found it readable, funny in places and genuinely touching in others It had elements of Wodehouse himself, Jerome K Jerome, Siegfried Sassoon and Cecil Lewis to my surprise, as well as the humour it gave a powerful, exciting and sometimes moving picture of fighting in the Firs [...]

    10. A. Arduvan on said:

      As someone already commented undeservedly obscure And that s a shame This series deserves greater fame for it s Woodehouse style of wit A very, very funny and well written series One tip do read them in strict sequence.

    11. Dawn on said:

      The blurb says it all really, sadly it wasn t my sort of book but thought I would try something different but I m sure it will appeal to a lot of readers

    12. Vlad on said:

      Grossly underrated and truly undeservingly obscure, I only found it by browsing for something else entirely, which makes me positively happy I stumbled upon this gem Such a delightful experience this was, following along the misadventures of the main character Bartholomew Bandy is the type of character I love unintentionally funny, getting into situations he has no business being in, and most of the time he is but a passenger on the roller coaster in the middle of a tornado of events that is Wor [...]

    13. Vanessa on said:

      Imagine Bertie Wooster in the trenches of WWI except with no Jeeves to save the day and a deep vein of sadness hiding just below the humor A classic that deserves a resurgence.

    14. Elissa on said:

      Set during World War I, our hero s ironic self deprecation makes him a perfect candidate for today s hipster s self conscious minimalism The book is well written and provides interesting insights into early 20th century rural Canada as well as trench and aerial warfare but I had a great deal of trouble liking the egocentric Mr Bandy In fact, until at least halfway through the book I was convinced I wouldn t finish it and had put it aside and notified the publisher I wasn t enjoying myself But I [...]

    16. Martin Renzhofer on said:

      Donald Jack created one of the most unforgettable characters in Bartholomew Bandy, a fish out of water if there ever was one What makes Bandy unique is his ability to see the big picture I read some reviews that has compared Bandy to Mr Bean or Black Adder, but the difference is the control over his destiny This Canadian soldier turned flier and other positions in ensuing books understands his situation and usually can make events turn his way, often in hilarious ways The book is loaded with lau [...]

    17. Leyla Johnson on said:

      I found this book very poignant, I did enjoy it but it made me sad Written about a boy, off on the big adventure 0f WWI and making light of it but there is a thread of sadness under it all

    18. Mike Jones on said:

      I found this a pretty amusing book, which had me smiling most of the time I was reading it, and occasionally laughing out loud.The bits about his flying exploits I found particularly good and there was much here that I just didn t know anything about, so it was interesting to read Most of the characters were painted amusingly the descriptions of the English aristocrats who appeared were very good.The ending was rather abrupt, but then the story continues in the next volume.

    19. Kim on said:

      I didn t care to much for this book It made me laugh out loud in some places but I found it to still be a bit boring.The main character reminded me of the comic strip character Beatle Baily It was an ok book, but i won t be reading the rest of the series.

    20. Gabriele Wills on said:

      A clever and hilarious look at World War 1 that is, at the same time, filled with facts Bartholomew Bandy is an unlikely but delightful and unforgettable hero Not as side splitting as the second book in the series, it is still laugh out loud funny.

    21. Lindsay on said:

      This was a pleasant surprise It was a little slow to get going but there were some moments in this novel that were sooo funny I cried so they made up for the slow beginning.Also nice to have stuff happenning in and around Canada.

    22. John on said:

      I read this way back in the seventies and has been on my read twice list for a while Maybe enjoyed it now than the first time As others have said it really is too bad this authors works have been rather obscure, too bad haven t enjoyed his works

    23. Jane on said:

      Another Canadian writer with little visibility in the States and this one is hilarious.On to book two

    24. Cheryl Cowtan on said:

      I read this book when I was a rebellious teenager who was too cool for school BUT I wasn t too cool for this book It was hilarious A definite re read for the future.

    25. Alix on said:

      Fantastic I can t believe I hadn t heard of this author before I m definitely going to read the rest of the series ASAP.

    26. Nancy on said:

      Reading Terry Fallis reminds me of Donald Jack wonderfully funny Bandy Papers series.

    27. Nancy on said:

      A hoot It probably helps to have an interest in knowledge of WWI.

    28. Barry on said:

      Corny Not unlike a P.G Wodehouse novel Yarn Character development Language Bonus WWII

    29. Serena on said:

      I probably would have given it 3 stars, had it not been a Canadian book Being Canadian automatically gets you an extra star Good book Will probably read the rest of the Bandy Papers books.
