I enjoy being addressed as my dear, in this case; nobody could accuse Harry of being politically correct. And this is his child-like interpretation of adult behaviour: "He was fumbling inside her blouse and, sitting up in our tree, we were laughing ourselves silly, because everybody knows she keeps her sweets in her pinny."
Although his descriptions of the killing of animals, the blood and guts of country life, are rather stomach-churning, I realized after a while that this is deliberately OTT (over the top) to achieve another comic effect.
Wonderful stuff!! I look forward to more of Harry's personal tweets; I hope with another wink or two. The first one made my day!
For all that the humour in the book isn't entirely my sort of humour, I can relate to it because it is completely my Dad's sort of humour - the sort of humour that we've all had to put up with all these very many years. LOL No, it's not that bad - we're used to it by now. What I have respect for, however, is the ability of the author to stay in character throughout and the complete randomness of some of his scenarios. I can recall reading through it and thinking "would I ever have considered this scene, if I'd been writing this book?". Never in a million years, is the answer.
A change is as good as a rest, they say, and this book was very much a change for me - one which I enjoyed reading and hence, I'll remember this book and recommend it to my Dad (at least!). :)
