5.0 out of 5 stars A seriously funny book
There's an awful lot to like here - starting with the hero, Danny, who despite his many faults (to which the three Kathys in his life will attest, at length) is a thoroughly likeable chap.

3.0 out of 5 stars Avoid any females called Kathy!
The more you read the better it gets. Not as rib tickling as a Tom Sharp but would now consider Giles Curtis publication in the future.

This review is from: It's All About Danny (Laugh-out-loud Tom Sharpe style comedy) (Kindle Edition)
There's an awful lot to like here - starting with the hero, Danny, who despite his many faults (to which the three Kathys in his life will attest, at length) is a thoroughly likeable chap. He's neatly counterpointed by the gauche and clumsy Larry, the scientist who's constantly getting into trouble with the police for reasons that take him quite by surprise; the sophisticated diplomat Shirley Temple, who finds herself unnaturally drawn to Danny; and the lascivious Chairman, who can't get laid even though he's rolling in it.

It's an odyssey through Danny's voyage of self-discovery - after all, as he says, it may be great taking a holiday from yourself but "you can't go on holiday forever". With many twists and turns, unexpected happenings and many very funny scenes, It's All About Danny romps through its story with clever plot devices and genuine humour.

This is Curtis's third and funniest book, and also the most controlled: a thoroughly well-written, tight, and very entertaining read. 99p well spent.

I had never read any books by this author , and probably downloaded without realising the content , but ended up downloading another 5 books by the author . Could easily be by Tom Sharpe . Certainly agree with the " laugh out loud " review of the book.

My husband downloaded this onto his Kindle and as an avid Tom Sharpe reader did not feel this was a Tom Sharpe style. Sorry!

Needs more practice to compete with Tom Sharpe. It has a good story line but suffers from a shaky ending

This review is from: It's All About Danny (Laugh-out-loud Tom Sharpe style comedy) (Kindle Edition)
So mixed up it's very hard to follow.The story line is all over the place and to compare it with Tom Sharpe is a travesty.
