5.0 out of 5 stars Odd Ball Cruise, 23 Mar 2014

This review is from: The Village Idiots Cruise Club: Funnier Than the Titanic (A Humorous Swipe at Life) (Kindle Edition)
I guarantee that you have never experienced a Mediterranean Cruise like this one! If you need a good laugh, pick up this book. The plot line is clever and so are the characters and their exploits.

This is the second book in this series. Big Dick is the leader of the Village Idiots Club. He has managed to finagle a free cruise for the club members as long as they agree to work for free while on the cruise. Club members plan on taking advantage of the passengers; the unsuspecting Captain Berlioni is duped into believing that they will be ambassadors of good will for the shipping line. The Captain is in for a huge surprise.

I will give you a sampling of characters. During this memorable voyage, the nefarious Aggie, who coordinates members of the “over sixty” club, informs her charges what they need to do in order to avoid “walking the plank.” This includes climbing a rock wall, completing a marathon, and participating in an all night disco. David Attenborough walks around the ship requiring passengers to pet his iguana friend. Professor Dawson uses his robot Sparky to redistribute the wealth from the casino to the delight of all those on board. At the Antiques Cruise Show, all the passengers are connived into showing their most valued possessions, which will later go missing. Now we have a bona-fide mystery to solve. Needless to say, the Captain is unhappy with his idiot crew. Will they be able to outwit him and see this hapless voyage till its end?

Lots of clever lines and plenty of laugh out loud humor. Don't miss this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious Cruise Ship Comedy, 21 Feb 2014
By 
This review is from: The Village Idiots Cruise Club: Funnier Than the Titanic (A Humorous Swipe at Life) (Kindle Edition)
"The Village Idiots Cruise Club: Hilarious Fun at Sea" by Charlie Bray is the second in the author's witty series on the Village Idiots Club, a bunch of oddballs and obscure characters, or idiots.
On this occasion the club has taken to the sea for a cruise, 'free' in exchange for their (free) labour on ship, but with a get out clause in case they proove unworthy of the free ride.

Incompetence, laziness and scheming won't pay off for our team of 'volunteers' as evil senior citizens and other taxing cruise passengers make the life of our cast difficult.

The book is full of great scenarios and very funny ideas about the adventures and misadventures that can occur on a cruise ship. The English-over-sixty Club, and a Antiques Road Show on sea are amongst those original ideas that make the book great fun to read.

The humour can be subtle or more sarcastically dark and cleverly takes apart the dynamics of many such cruises and the clientele. Throw in a mystery to be solved, an odd scientist and his robot, Big Dick, the leader of the Village Idiots and you have yourself a firework of laughs and a conveyer belt of gags.

Treat yourself to a fun read!
