5.0 out of 5 stars A very original and very funny book!, 7 Feb 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Potted History of Paulo Seville (Paperback)
I wasn't quite sure what to expect before I read this book, but I have to say that I loved it. It's funny, original and full of creativity. Some of the ideas in this book are really entertaining and incredibly well observed. There are some great characters too; Paul (or Paulo) has a dry wit and perseverance that endures throughout the book and I really warmed to him and his determination. But I think it's his mother and Aunt that I enjoyed the most. Some of their dialogue is hilarious and if there was ever going to be a spin off...they've got to be at the top of the pile! Oh, and Kitty Clay, a really well defined `character' with some cracking one liners. The story (or `Potted History') twists and turns as Paulo tries to make a name for himself in the world of television and never feels laboured. Every incident, person, conversation and interaction serves a purpose and only adds to the enjoyment of this read. I highly recommend it.
