5.0 out of 5 stars Tourist Trap, 28 Jun 2001
This review is from: All Quiet on the Orient Express (Paperback)
If Mills is the future of British literature, then we are in very safe hands. A tale of an outsider given a chance to become one of the village's own. He takes on tasks put in front of him, lusts(quietly) for his landlord's daughter and becomes a member of the local pub's darts team. You feel throughout the book that the hero will suffer the wrath of his employer. This dormaint feeling never really rears it's head and it's because of this that you find yourself warming to the quirks of the village characters. Mills is spot on with his take on an out-of-season tourist spot. By placing the tale at the end of the season, it really brings home how a thriving village suddenly loses it's sparkle when all the money has gone home. Weird this may be but it's all the better for it. 5 stars and that's just for the paper crown.
