I've read the book and listened to the book on tape several times and I
enjoyed it greatly. "Gaudy Night" is still my favorite Sayers book. I do
believe that a lot of "Thrones and Dominations" is true Sayers. I felt that
the comparison of the two couples was interesting but perhaps not enough to
carry the plot. Usually I can reread Sayers many times in a short period
before it cloys but the main plot isn't as amusing as usual. I enjoy the
scenes from the Wimsey marriage and the Bunter subplot. I think that the book
is stronger for being tied to current events, which also allows commentary on
love and marriage.
