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.Read more ›
Very weak ending - I thought the Kindle app had frozen and then I realised the story was over.....
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.

Not funny, not clever, not well written, not in the remotest way does it make me want to find out what happened next. Truly dreadful.Published 4 days ago by Ivan
Got this for hubby who uses it as his "toilet" reading, not read it myself yet but by the laughter coming from the loo, I guess it is funny.Published 4 days ago by Claire
This is one of a series of books which are described as ‘Enid Blyton for grown-ups’, perhaps best appreciated by those of us who grew up with, and thoroughly enjoyed, Enid Blyton’s... Read morePublished 5 days ago by Keen Reader
What I loved about this book, other than the twisted, bitter humour, was the solid characterization of the Five. Read morePublished 7 days ago by SusanLovesBooks
