More About the Author

David Ferguson has been a teacher, a civil servant, a guitarist in a rock band and a lot of other things that would be a bit dull to rehash here but which have provided plenty of grist for the writing mill (forgive the mixed metaphor).
David has been a Christian since 1973 and has also been a fan of science fiction for as long as he can remember, so unsurprisingly, elements of both can be found in his writing, though these things aren't all he writes about. David's writing here on Amazon covers a handful of genres including sci-fi, YA, fantasy, factual, poetry, religious and short stories. The parts of his writing that he has most fun with are probably the episode featuring Jane Austen in "No Paradox", the banter between Ben and his mates in "Buzz", and the letter in Middle English written by Richard Dale in "Miriam's Lover".
He went to university rather late in the day - aged 30 - but has finished up with a degree in English and postgraduate qualifications in computing and in teaching (he teaches English and ICT).
He is married to Lesley and they live in Northern Ireland with their four children, who have not yet shown any inclination to move out.

This was a great afternoons read. It was a great read because it took me back to when I was a lad doing exactly the same thing, playing in bands and having similar relationship band problems. I thought it was a well written believable story that kept my interest to the end. This is really a story for teenagers or nostalgic old rockers like myself. Had I not known the author I wound not have been drawn to it by it title but I was glad I had the pleasure of reading it.

Somewhat of a Surprise 26 Jan. 2012
By Lucy Ditty - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I am definitely not this book's target audience (mid to late teens), nor am I a boy, nor do I wish to be in a band. My eyebrow also nearly left my forehead altogether at the description's last line, which suggests the book might just be "the holy grail - the book that gets boys interested in reading again!"

Despite all this, I quite liked Buzz.

The description covers the plot well enough, in my opinion, and I don't want to run into spoilers. I'll just say that I found the book to be better than I expected from reading the description.

Ben sometimes resembles the ball in a pinball machine as he tries to manage his life. He's a likable young man and I found myself rooting for him. The characters and situations were realistic, or at least realistic enough that I could go along with the story. If this had been a movie, I might have expected an 80's style movie montage of Ben getting up to speed on the guitar. At one point, I was getting very frustrated on Ben's behalf, which shows how much I got involved in his story, but the story moved forward before I got to the point of aggravation with the story itself.

For the most part, grammar, punctuation, and spelling were fine. The one thing I really noticed was the use of "alright."

The language shows that the characters are, I believe, Irish, and some words and spellings from across the pond appear (trainers, unauthorised, fiver, blokes, queue up). Don't quote me on that Irish thing, though. I don't remember the country being specifically mentioned and I don't remember the city names. It just wasn't important enough to the story for me to really make a note of it. (This should not be taken as a negative, just a comment.)

I can't speak to the authenticity of the accent myself, but it doesn't feel fake or forced. It read naturally to me, the meaning of the few words I hadn't run into before was clear from context, and I really enjoyed the different flavor it imparted to the book.

I waffled a bit between 3 and 4 stars, but ultimately, my honest reaction to the book was "I like it" rather than "it's ok." It was a light, fun read. I don't think it lives up to the "holy grail" statement, but again, I'm not the target audience.
