The Bite on the End of the Line (Bytarend) by Simon Cantan
1 of 1 people found the following review helpful
I could be very superior and say that this is sub-Pratchett, takes a while to get going and requires a considerable suspension of disbelief at times. All of which would be true, but that wouldn't get to the gist which is that this is a fun story with some intriguing characters. I can guarantee that you will be entertained, which is what it is all about really, isn't it?

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great story, 31 Mar 2014
This is another great story in the Auto series from David Wailing, and one which will provoke much sighing and shaking of heads in those of my age who despair of 'young people looking at their phones all the time and not interacting with real life'. David takes this phenomenon to its natural conclusion, with a disturbing account of possible nightclub culture in the not-too-distant future. I should think that David's main problem with these stories is the very real danger of life imitating art at such a rapid pace that it overtakes his stories!
Jeeves and the Yule-tide Spirit by P.G. Wodehouse
One of the best Jeeves and Wooster stories, with all of the classic ingredients. A miffed Jeeves, Bertie letting his heart rule (what might laughingly be called) his head and the usual mix-ups and perils of a country house weekend.
