He's not really a grumpy old git, but someone at odds with many aspects of modern life. Facebook, management-speak, feral youths, carrier bags in shops, cashpoints, mobile phones, the list is long yet familiar, but the anti-hero does just enough to keep you rooting for him.
Some of the comical exchanges of dialogue are so memorable that I doubt I'll ever forget them. In summary, I enjoyed it so much that I was genuinely disappointed when I finished it.
For me, it was in relation to phoning in sick and having to use a fake sounding voice even when you're genuinely ill! "I can only hope, that one day, civilisation advances enough for us to accept that our voices don't really change much when we're ill and we can all speak normally when we call in sick". So true!
Well worth a read, I just wish it had been a bit longer.
To be honest, I would have felt disappointed (possibly even ripped off) if I'd bought this at today's kindle price of £4.49. But as I bought it as a Daily Deal item at 99p, I'm glad I bought it and would recommend it if it ever comes up on sale again!
Having long been the subject matter of the title, how could I resist?
From the first page it was impossible to put down, finished all too soon, and left me wanting to know more.
It had a compelling narrative, and was full of laugh out loud moments.

As a grumpy old git I looked forward to this and found myself disappointed with it. Not terribly original, only funny in parts, I felt I could have written better myself. Read morePublished on 25 July 2013 by S. Emmett
