OK, but mercyfully short,
This review is from: With One Lousy Free Packet of Seed (Paperback)
This is a tale about some rather quirky people, who live rather boring lives. Until one day, something upsets their cosy existence.
Though enjoyable, the excessive hype, led me to believe it would be "hilarious." The story is certainly amusing, but I did not find it hilarious. Perhaps, this was because the main protagonist doesn't actually do anything, but act as a pawn in other peoples lives.
It is quite a short book, so you won't loose much giving it a try. The first few pages are rather turgid, but once these are out of the way, it becomes easy to read.
