This book is really two separate stories about two separate branches of the inconvenience store of the title… or to be more accurate, stories about the customers of two of its branches.
I guess you’d call it a fantasy novel, or maybe just a little bit spooky, but if those kinds of books aren’t normally your bag, don’t be put off… they aren’t my usual choice either, but I enjoyed it immensely nonetheless. I only gave it a try because I’m a fan of Bob Cubitt’s excellent ‘Warriors’ novels. I’m so glad I did.
The two tales may have the shadow of the supernatural hanging in the background, but it’s the way the characters from the real world handle the odd and sometimes menacing situations they find themselves in that makes the book so entertaining.
Although the book’s a mystery, I suppose, it isn’t a ‘who dunnit?’… it’s more a ‘how the hell do I get out of this?’ kind of book, but with the problems coming from ‘elsewhere’, and the strictly enforced rules of engagement being equally mysterious, it takes some lateral thinking on the part of the lead characters to solve them. I suspect there was a good deal of lateral thinking involved in the writing of it too.
An easy and entertaining read… well two reads really… I can readily recommend this book to anyone. Excellent.
