5.0 out of 5 stars Catch it now!, 25 Aug 2012
This review is from: Catching Kit (Kindle Edition)
I really enjoyed Kay Berrisford's Catching Kit.
From the first time we see him, I fell completely in love with Kit, the 'Ethereal Being' or EB, which he was classified as by the government.
Jolly Old London, you see, is infested with elves. The government has its own squads of pest removal officers in white vans whose aim is to remove the EBs from the streets before word can get out. The EBs are then taken away and dealt with - and they never come back.
Denny, from whose viewpoint we see the action, is one of those agents. He catches Kit, and but for the horrendous mix-up that his daily life consists of, he would have processed him right away. But Denny has too much on his plate - a hectic job, an ex-wife and young daughter for whom he's desperate to be a good dad. And under it all, despite his training, he has his doubts.
So he takes Kit home and stores him in a temporary safe in his garage. And it all goes downhill, or rather for our heroes, uphill, from there.
I loved the language, the feel and taste and smell of London. The humorous touches were genius and the writing was fresh and pulled you along. I devoured this in one sitting and hope Kay will write more books in this vein. I loved it and will seek out some more of her work.
The cover: 5 stars for the cover too. This is the way to do it! A brilliant portrait and professionally produced cover with nice colours, layout and fonts. Well done, Loose-ID.
