This review is from: Mrs Darcy Versus The Aliens (Paperback)
Wow - as an avid kindle owner it is now rare for me to buy a real book (despite having a houseful) and the only complaint I have about this book is it wasn't available on kindle BUT this is one I have already read twice despite only buying it last week. There are jokes galore on each page but each character stands on it own and so I was turning pages to say what happens and sniggering at the jokes as they hit me relentlessly. It was almost as though it was a book with a secrets to share - song lyrics, film references, artists, poets - each were recognisable and didn't detract from the story itself - more like a comment from a mate in the pub that made you snort in a very un ladylike manner. It's true. Jon Pinnock made me snort and I just thankful I was not in public whilst reading this book. I am on tentacles waiting for the sequel and the only downside for me is that this is the first book by the author - how much more satisfying it would be to find he has a back catalogue I can purchase merrily and indulge over the weekend. so please write quickly Mr Pinnock and produce the next instalment - as I'm dying to know what happens next. Oh, and I have re-named our sat nav Annie, in your honour. (and this is the first review I've ever done despite reading at least 7 or 8 books a week - this book is THAT good!!!) And yes, I meant to say tentacles!
