About the Author
T J Brown was born in Dorset during the 1960s but was too young to realise how good the decade was meant to be. Instead, he had to make do with the 1970s, which only became interesting towards the end when many, Brown included, started wearing charity-shop clothes and swearing. Conscription into arts school was at this time mandatory and as a result Brown found himself reading German literature, creating miserable paintings and performing music that in retrospect, and at the time, was dreadful. After three lost years at art school Brown moved to London to begin five lost years on the margins of the capital’s fashionable underbelly. After all that, a career in publishing almost came as a relief. And so, after many years producing illustrated books on astronomy and aviation, Brown returned to his love of comic writing. He lives in Kent, dangerously close to two pubs.
I bought this book based on reviews and low price, I thought I'd take a chance and luckily I hit the jackpot! I absolutely loved this book, laughing my way through it and highly enjoying the characters. Fun and lighthearted, the author manages to keep the readers interest and credulity with good writing and sharp humour even through a crazy story line. I would definitely buy any more books he writes.
This is not a fast paced novel. It is well researched,although I wonder if the author has driven in the Torquemada region.
The slow pace to this novel should not spoil your enjoyment, but add to it. The descriptions of the characters are pure fun and in some cases wonderfully disgusting. I like to know the baddies are TJ Brown knows how to do this without patronising a reader.
Excellent writer. Value for money as it took me a week or so of late nights to read this thrilling amusing book. Though it started slow and I had shelved it for a while before being tempted to read on. Worth buying and seeing it through until the end.
Highly enjoyable romp balancing rational atheism and supernatural silliness, car chases and a tank, a deliciously sour ex wife and her po-faced posse, the Inquisition and a bad guy with the evil credentials of Yonderland's Negatus.
Absolutely brilliant book. The last time I found a book this good was Expecting someone taller by Tom Holt. Write more quickly please, Terry Pratchetts first book wasn't as funny or original as this. Only goes up to five stars but deserves more.
