    Too much plot accomplishes very last thing any writer wants — distancing the worried reader from the story you wanted the reader to love. Things feel too likely to pass up. Those are all legitimate concerns, certainly, and a story is such an important, fragile thing. Mortdecai, the son of a peer, never tires of describing the splendors of his cellar, his table, and his tailoring. Many people, even great designers, make the mistake of using too many words, or worse, really convoluted words which will just alienate the user.

    His wife recalls the extraordinary shifting contents of a home in which everything was potential stock—antique firearms, Dutch marquetry, Chinese porcelain, and dozens of stuffed birds in a questionable state of preservation, which Bon had bought from a Welsh natural-history museum, convinced that they were a bargain. Mortdecai might be portly, but when his life is on the line, he becomes very light on his feet. Put the leather in. The yearning to add just one more thing is a powerful flame. I do not like to blunt my senses.

    They are quite willing to step over the cooling corpse of a certain Mortdecai to do so. Why even the Woosters had a code, as we are told on the highest authority. If clarity is the payoff, and the primary, strong story is not affected to the point that anything major needs to be changed, then trim. His Oscar Wilde touch. Oh yeah? I need a flow chart and a genealogy.

What if you leave him out and the main plot feels like thin soup as a result? It reaches for the affectless jauntiness of Wodehouse, the cool viciousness of Fleming, in desperation and in vain.

I like art and money and dirty jokes and drink. Try these tips: 1. Websites that allow the user to gain value and find what they want without any fuss, or without making them think, are the ones which will be the most successful.

Although perhaps a little older sounding than the ""middle aged"" Mortdecai, Prebble's timing, tone, and emphasis in this very sarcastic narrative more than makes up for the discrepancy.

It is not at all a good place for sex: sex should take place in armchairs, or in bathrooms, or on lawns which have been brushed but not too recently mown, or on sandy beaches if you happen to be circumcised.
