The Gangerwads (There's something wrong with Prindle Bay)
The Gangerwads (There's something wrong with Prindle Bay)

5.0 out of 5 stars Another gripping story with great characters!, 30 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As I've come to expect from Carl Lee, the characters here are very easy to connect with which helps to place you in the scenarios within the story. The adventure unfolds in various locations which are described with enough detail to allow you to get an idea of what each place would be like. The events that take place draw the reader in and keep you wanting more. The whole story could easily be the plot of a brilliant film, with intense twists and turns, awesome "baddies" and a good level of darkness and suspense throughout.

Of course, there is a smattering of humour which adds a huge sense of realism but also keeps it quite light-hearted and easy to read.

I'd say this is my favourite Carl Lee book thus far, and just thinking about it whilst writing this review has got me itching to read it again!

AREA 1 (A MATTER OF NOTHING)

5.0 out of 5 stars An absorbing adventure, 24 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As with all of Carl Lee's (e)books, I was torn between reading this particular tale quickly in order to find out what happens, and dragging it out to make it last longer.

There is a certain level of vague description that allows the imagination to run riot, coupled with a collection of tiny details to give each character and location a huge sense of realism and connectivity to the reader. The humour in particular is quite subtle and really adds to the normality of many of the events within the story.

This book has elements of a Mulder and Scully investigation with Dirk Gently humour and a little Twin Peaks weirdness. By all accounts, a damn good mix!
