It's fantastically entertaining, we are introduced to George, and his very, very grey and dull existence, and then things take one comic twist and turn after another (with a romantic thread interwoven, but enough humour so as not to put male readers off). The book is very well written, in fact I would say crafted. I am happy to read books with just a great plot, but it's always such a bonus when an author's choice of language is beyond the perfunctory. The characters are very well constructed, and you really feel yourself rooting for George (and reflecting on your own life choices too!).
I was desperate to find out how it would all turn out for George (and the other characters), but also a little worried that with such a highly paced book I would feel let down by the ending (this is a constant fear and reality for me), however I was not to be left feeling cheated on this occasion, a great ending to a fabulous book... and the possibility of a follow-up...
I sincerely hope that Alastair Puddick follows it up with a series featuring George and Alice muddling their way through other gloriously improbable adventures. They're two very sympathetic characters and their love affair is beautifully described.
Get back in the Harry Potter Cupboard, Alastair, and give us a sequel...
One drawback stops me giving it more stars ... It needs a serious proof read. There were so many typos, 's in wrong place, words wrong way round, obvious words missing; that I started to find this distracting.

An entertaining read but lacked the believability of similar books in genre. Characters are interesting and lovable, but their development also a little clunky. Read morePublished 1 month ago by R. A. Duys

To steal the authors words, a silly, quirky story. Great fun, easy to read but memorable characters and a nice crazy plot that simply entertains from start to finish.Published 4 months ago by SarBear
This is a fun screwball comedy about a man with a dull life, who suddenly finds himself in the middle of an adventure. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Alison
