Definitely better read than dead !
on 21 October 2011
The ingenious premise gives the author a wide canvas on which to display his undoubted talent. He combines observation and imagination to great effect. The result is a comedic masterpiece, with wit as incessant as the tide, and a satirical undercurrent of cutting social criticism. It is very funny, and the reader will be rewarded by laughter in abundance. The denouement leaves plenty of scope for more, and so we can only hope that the author delivers on his promise of a sequel to this triumphant debut novel.
