Good fun, but not as light as Wilt,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Great Pursuit (Paperback)
The great pursuit revolves around a publicity trip which goes horribly wrong. All the ingredients of a good farce are in here - rioting, false identities, grotesque characters, mad passions, trips to police stations and a bit of suspected arson and attempted murder thrown in too. The plot is promising, but somehow it's just not that funny. I enjoyed Wilt, Vintage stuff and Porterhouse Blue, and have read a few of his other books, and I thought that this didn't quite measure up. But it's still worth a read on a rainy afternoon.
