When I choose a book by an unknown (to me) author, I check the reviews to get an idea of what to expect. This book had the best write-ups I've ever seen: 46 out of 48 reviewers gave it 5 stars, there was one 4 star and only one dissenting voice (God bless you, Mr Peterson). What should, on the face of it, have been one of the best thrillers I've ever read, turned out to be possibly the worst. This is poorly-written drivel and it is incomprehensible that it should receive so many rave notices. Having finished the book I had to return for a closer look at the reviews: they're nearly all spookily similar, using exactly the same phrases again and again. I'm not naive enough to think that an author's friends and relatives aren't going to chip in with the odd write-up to help with sales, but the scale of these glowing puffs just serves to distort the process, and makes it very difficult for the ordinary punter to judge what a book is really like.
Apart from anything else, this book would have benefited from a good editor: there are numerous spelling and grammatical errors strewn throughout, and whose idea was it to separate every paragraph with a substantial vertical gap? Even the dialogue is treated this way so it's hard to follow which character is speaking, and it can take you a moment to realise that the action has moved to a different location.
The prose consists mainly of joined-up cliches and none of the characters is very likeable, so you end up not caring what happens to them. The frequent sex scenes are a joke: they read like something a third-form schoolboy would come up with, but at least they provide something to smile about in their awfulness, which is a relief since there's precious little humour to be found elsewhere.
I can only urge prospective book-buyers to be wary of reviews in general, and to treat over-blown critiques of this book in particular with generous doses of cynicism.

5.0 out of 5 stars one of my favourite books. 7 Feb 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have bought this book three times, two hard copies, one signed, the third on my kindle. Once I started reading it i couldn't put it down, it relates to places I know and things that happen that we never hear about. On a personal note Nick Pope is a truly inspirational man and I can't wait for the next book.

5.0 out of 5 stars COULDNT PUT IT DOWN 7 Sep 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
My dentist recommended this book, the author is one of his patients. I bought it last week and couldn't put it down. The beginning is really raunchy and I thought oh no not another 50 shades, but then, it all started fitting in. Its so true to life and having lived in Liverpool where the story is based, it was really well researched. Fantastic story, gritty, funny and raw, thank you Nick Pope, great read!!!

Off Plan by Nick Pope

Not at all what I expected from one of my former squash playing associates.

The Liverpool underworld is clearly not a place to treat lightly and I found the writing style to be interesting and although this is not my first choice of topics, I did find it fairly fast paced and compelling.

For a first novel Nick has produced something that most only dream of doing and I feel honoured that I have in some small way contributed to what is a great charity.
