5.0 out of 5 stars Real story telling
A book where the story comes first and is not buried by descriptions of scenery, customs and history. Up therewith the No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency. The writing flows and keeps your interest right to the end. MORE PLEASE

2.0 out of 5 stars Another boring book.
If the point of writing this book was to put its readers to sleep, then it does the trick quite well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Equally as good as the preqel "Blue Murder at Kudu", 14 Dec 2012

This review is from: Love and Lunacy at Kudu: a very British romantic comedy novel set in Africa (humourous fiction books) (Kindle Edition)
Got this book straight after reading "Blue Murder at Kudu" and it carried on with the same madness of the British abroad. Love and Lunacy perfectly sums up the content especially the lunacy. Although some of the characters might be slightly over the top I can imagine that the local Africans really did think the British were completely mad. Very funny just like the last book and great when you want to read an easy and relaxing book on holiday

Having read Blue Murder at Kudu, and being a cheap download on Kindle, I gave this one a whirl and wasn't sorry! The author must obviously have a huge knowledge of his subject, and puts it to good use. I would recommend both books to anyone who is looking for an engaging and humourous read, with a fair bit of education thrown in.

4.0 out of 5 stars Colonial times., 8 May 2014

This review is from: Love and Lunacy at Kudu: a very British romantic comedy novel set in Africa (humourous fiction books) (Kindle Edition)
This is a book very much of its time, that time being 1930s Africa.
It points up the attitudes of both the 'ruling' officials, and the native population in a sometimes hilarious way.
Although quite a few things in the book are not politically correct, and some would be totally unacceptable today,
it is not malicious at all.
I did enjoy it overall nonetheless, but then I am an elderly Englishwoman.
I can remember when such attitudes were commonplace, though I am very relieved that is not so today.

Good follow on to Murder at Kudu. Best read that first. Story a little unbelievable but that creates it humour. I look forward to the next in the series.

This review is from: Love and Lunacy at Kudu: a very British romantic comedy novel set in Africa (humourous fiction books) (Kindle Edition)
The descriptions were sufficient to allow me to picture the locale and the people without being cloyingly detailed. The humour was sometimes suitably understated and the storyline quite strong. All in all I enjoyed the book.
