Book Description

A NEW wickedly funny novel by John D Rhodes

Dave’s mind is thick with fog but something is holding the doors shut tight. What’s more he's blind, trapped in hospital, tortured to distraction by a beautiful nurse and accompanied by Lenny a quite stinky tramp come wizard of dubious origins. What more could a man want? Who can help him escape all three and will he really like the answers once his mind returns to normal?

At least things can’t get any worse… can they? Come along on Dave’s voyage of discovery and revenge, just where did the disease ridden cat come from, who are, Fate, Degradation, Famine and Hope and can he really win back the love of his life?

The answers, strangely, may lie within this story, where the struggle for ultimate power, mystical ageless beings and the delights of office party sexual politics meet in a headlong car crash of magic, good versus evil and some odd, (very odd in this case) talking beasties.

More About the Author

Hello and welcome.

Thank you for visiting my pages here. I'm a writer currently publishing via Amazon, my first novel - Mr Memory - is available to purchase now and I have two further books to be published this year, 'Humphrey Pickleton And The Secret' a childrens' story and 'The Bad Wife' - a murder mystery come humorous fantasy fiction novel.

I've been writing for nearly 30 years but only now, thanks to modern technology and Amazon, have I been able to bring some of my work to you. I've written well over 40 short stories and 4 full length novels.

My work tends to live in that part of the universe where things are very similar to our reality, but with a tinge of the strange, an off kilter reflection, a mix of sour and sweet. This is not science fiction or horror but a fantasy fiction where things are not quite what they seem, animals can talk and sometimes the hero is not and the villain is, and just maybe there is a happy ending for some of the characters.

My favourite authors reflect my tastes and so on my book shelves you'll find Tom Holt, Robert Rankin, Douglas Adams and Terry Pratchett fighting for shelf space with Bill Bryson. And yes you'll also find a good splattering of Sci Fi - Asimov et al.

You will also find quite a few biographies of mainly musical heros of mine but the odd Norman Wisdom tome rubbing shoulders with Neil Young.

Most of the children's books live in my boys' rooms but you'll find Harry Potter and lots of Roald Dahl! I'm also partial to lots of Charlie Bone (the wonderful Jennie Nemmo) and lots of traditional stuff too.

As well as writing I'm a song writer and play guitar and bass.

Ambition wise I'd love to give up the day job but for now I'm happy just to get my work out there.

Thank you again for visiting.

Reading the blurb, the book sounded interesting and I was fortunate enough to receive a review copy from Mr. Rhodes.

Whether or not the majority of the book lives up to the blurb, I do not know as I was only able to get through about 11% or so of the book due to issues I had with it.

The primary issue I had with the book is proofreading. While some of it may account for grammar differences between British English and American English (and I do take into account spelling differences), it does not account for all of it. As an example, in "....once been some flash mavericks joy...", the word mavericks is plural as is, when I believe the singular version was meant. In another example, "...could have bottled and sold as quant.", I think 'quant' was meant to be 'quaint'; "worse for ware" should be "worse for wear"; "coke" was not capitalized and in lower case is something else entirely than what is meant; etc. One instance of "greenie" meant for eye color, but when I looked it up, the term as is came up defined as an informal term for someone who campaigns for the environment. There are a few more examples that fall into this category up to the point I was able to read. Quite frankly, even though I do not mind seeing the odd error in a book I am reading, I do mind a bit if I am constantly going back and forth to a dictionary to double check spellings.

The other issue I had with reading Mr Memory I do not think would have been as much of an issue if not for the proofreading is the character himself. There was a certain almost stream of consciousness about the character that was more of an irritant than something that worked for my tastes.

Even though I did not find the book to my taste, I do wish Mr. Rhodes success with it and any future endeavor he has.
