Format: Paperback
This is really more of a collection of short stories loosely based around a central theme. It's writen in quite an odd way, but it's also very readable.
The only bad thing about it, is it makes you want to read more from the author, but to my knowledge this is His/Her only book so far.
Highly reccomended, though I'm sure it won't be to everyone's taste.

I have read this book twice as it was so great and the author doesn't seem to have written anything else!
As the other reviewer has said the style of writing is a little odd but when you get used to it it is laugh out loud stuff!
I can't recommend it highly enough and T Troughton, if you are out there please publish something else!

Format: Paperback
No one seems to have heard of this book except myself and the four other people who have reviewed it on Amazon in the twelve years since it was published, but it ought to be a best seller with a cult following.

Perhaps the publishers just did not do anything to market this lively low life comedy.

This original author Tabitha Troughton's first (and only so far?) book makes the point that drug dealers, deviants and professional criminals are not just found in big cities but in medium sized and smaller towns and villages in counties like Buckinghamshire too.

The book does go off at many tangents with stories about many of the minor characters, but there is nothing wrong with that. It is written in a gently ironic tone; so if you are reading this review but have not yet read 'Animals' why not become the sixth person ever to read it?

If you do like it, another novel not as well known as it should be that may appeal to some of the same audience and which I greatly recommend is Everything You Ever Wanted by Rosalind Wyllie, which despite the impression the cover illustration may create is certainly neither 'porn' and typical 'check lit'.
