Don't Look At  Me In That Tone Of Voice!: Adventur&hellip by Alex Cotton
2 of 2 people found the following review helpful
Having been born in the same year as Alex, I deeply identified with her, although my mother wasn't quite that nuts! So much was familiar and it just goes to show how you can write with humour about things that some would see as terrible!! I enjoyed this so much am off to look at the sequels. I thought at first Alex's style was contrived, but no, it runs through the whole book, never losing pace or wit - brilliant! When I was a teenager, we used to say, don't look at me in that tone of colour!

5.0 out of 5 stars A great insight, 19 April 2014
A really good insight into Monica Edward's life, and how it informed her writing. I see her books in a different light now, great!

This short book was such fun, disobeying all the rules about narrative and structure, with testosterone heaving off the pages! It's a written as it occurred him to write with a haphazard order of events. Yet it's so readable and if you are a lone traveller, you will identify with it. Having done this as a teenager (Yes kids, we did this too in the 1970s) I see how he's caught the angst and insecurity of being alone in a new city and looking to meet up. He's caught the magic of those instant friendships that make foreverfriends of people you'll never see again. It's also a great insight into male thinking, I did wonder on the things tactfully left out!
