One to reread, definitely. Sep 08, Mondrian rated it really liked it. This is a light hearted beautifully written book. The "hero" Mr Sponge is a delight and the description of the other characters and ways of life. The fact that Mr Sponge passes his evenings reviewing the timetable of "buses" in London is just one of the funny things.

The main character's name is appropriate, as he tours around, sponging off his hosts, overstaying his welcome until his hosts are thoroughly sick of him - and he's thoroughly sick of his hosts.
The different characterizations are quite entertaining, as are the situations where Mr. Sponge tries to gain the upper hand, while avoiding those trying to take advantage of him. Jul 20, Karen rated it it was amazing Shelves: victorian , humor-satire. I haven't finished it yet but so far I love this book.
