Gary comes back as an apparition to his wreck of a distraught, grieving wife, Hattie. His first observation as he hovers over her is that her “roots need doing”. And so the one-liners continue to sprinkle themselves across the page. (The author would make a fine stand-up comic.) There is a storyline apart from the gags, though, and some satisfying sub-plots and other amusing personalities. Johnny, the couple’s son is a very recognisable adolescent. “Any plans for the day?” [ asks his Mum] –“ apart from making tortoises look energetic, she thought to herself.” About three quarters of the way through, the gags settle down and we have a relatively serious interlude (no spoilers) and then ….. and this is my only gripe… the story ends suddenly – like the end of a soap episode – “to be continued”. That was cruel – like visitors who eat grapes they bring into hospital…
I loved Cat and her best friend, Hat, who were at school together and who had “snorted their way through maths classes, trigonometry and algebra as appealing as genital warts.” I can identify with that.
A very funny tale and, when I get over my annoyance at being teased to an almost-climax – I might look out for the sequel. Audrey Davis is a caution
It definitely leaves the reader wanting more and to read on to find out what happens next.
It is easily to relate to all the characters. We all have a friend like Cat, who is unlucky in love, and has a knack of chasing the wrong men.
I found myself "shouting" at Cat "NO" when Stewart comes to visit, when she lets him in and she opens a bottle of wine. It leaves you wondering is she going to fall for his charms again if she is tipsy, and then in the final lines, is Stewart going to blame the wine and Cat being tipsy when she sees Gary. We all know a "twenty something forever teenager" like Hattie's son, that you would like to tell him to grow up, and do something with his life.
Really looking forward to Part Two of The Haunting of Hattie Hastings!
