From the Publisher
Animals marks the debut of a brilliantly original new comic voice. This is a book which proves that the Spirit of Adventure is alive & well & living in a small market town near Oxford.

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.
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!
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'.
