I bought this book when it was first out and it ended up in the back of a cupboard. When I found it the other day, I already knew I was in for a treat as I've read another Paul McDonald title, Surviving Sting.
This was even better! I read it in two nights and got some very funny looks from people when I was laughing out loud. Paul has a special talent that eludes many writers - he writes ridiculously observant comedy, whilst maintaining a sense of realism in fantastical situations (people who've read the book will know exactly what I mean...)
I can only give this book full marks and fingers crossed there will be a lot more to come from Paul in the future.

I came to this book after reading the brilliant, 'Do I Love You?, and I wasn't disappointed. Like the latter it is incredibly fast moving, with a genius plot. This guy really does write like a dream: he's by far my favourite comic author. It's been two years since his last novel, let's hope it's not too much longer before another arrives.
