Format: Hardcover
Don’t read this if you haven’t yet come to terms with Brexit; the angle is, let us say, not fanatically pro-European.

My background dictates I should have truly hated this book: My mom and dad are both (hello, matey peeps!) Greek. They had me in Chicago, they raised me in Athens, where I gradually became aware of the fact that I hail from an ethnic minority, and they sent me to college in Boston. From there I moved to Frankfurt for a year, before settling in London for the past 25 years, where I’m raising a family with a Japanese / American woman.

To my chagrin, our children are proudly and fanatically British, to the extent that my daughter wrote an invitation for Prince George to her 5th birthday, which we had to pretend we mailed. More poignantly, a year and a bit ago, Greece was playing Japan in the world cup. So I asked my son whom he’d be supporting. The only observation he could make was that it did not sound like England was playing…

And now, of course, it sounds like we’ve overstayed our welcome and we need to leave.

I should add here that as a young boy I read all Secret Seven and all Famous Five books (to which this addition is 100% true; Enid Blyton could easily have penned it) multiple times and also followed the adventures of Dick, Ann, Julian, George and Timmy the dog on Greek television.

In short, I’m precisely the type of guy who should have hated this book with a passion.

Call it Stockholm syndrome, call it what you like, I bloody loved it. I read it in one go.

You probably need to have lived here to find it funny. Don’t think it would work for somebody who hasn’t lived in the UK and has not followed the sundry ridiculous arguments surrounding Brexit in the UK press.

A very amusing mishmash of political satire and old fashioned Blyton literature. Worth it for a few quid and a brief read.

To be honest, I bought this as stocking fillers for a laugh and didn't expect much of the narrative. But actually it is funny. Set on Kerrin Island (you remember) George declares independence from the UK and Krexit and KirIN ensues. Don't want to spoil it for you too much but remember "Krexit means Krexit!"

...good in parts but never really got going - sad because it was the bones of a good idea with lots of potential and what there was of it was quite good fun,
Very weak ending - I thought the Kindle app had frozen and then I realised the story was over.....

Absolutely hilarious & totally accurate depiction of how some of those who voted reacted to the EU referendum. Superbly written whilst maintaining the key feel which made The Famous Five so special. Thoroughly recommended!

Brought this for a stocking filler for my dad,
didn't expect too much but it is actually really funny!!
I would recommend for any Brit that has experiencedthe trials and tribulations of Brexit.
Definitely one to read aloud to the family!
Also written in the same way as the original book bringing back nostalgia of when I used to read the books as a child.
