The book format is basically structured in the format of emails. Two brothers who hate each other go to a game reserve to learn some new skills for a year and in the process hopefully bond. The emails in question are to their sister relaying their adventure stories, each from their own perspectives. The 2 brothers in question are Angus and Hugh. Angus is the sarcastic and unlikable one (but highly funny) and Hugh is the high achiever and people's people. The polarity between the two is simply hilarious. On a number of occasions I found myself laughing out loud. The book is really funny, probably because of the things Angus says rather than anything else.
In any case I was sceptical about how the book would progress given the email nature of it's structure. However, the author pulled this off really well and I found myself on numerous occasions reading for hours just to see what would happen to the brothers next. There are a number of surprise turns and one event that was really quiet sad. This in itself shows you that you could easily engage with the characters and did care about possible altercations which they might have.
Overall I thoroughly enjoyed the book. A bargain of a price and therefore is highly recommended to all. James, if you're reading, write another book with the same characters - I'm sure to read it. Well done on this your first book. Thoroughly enjoyable.
I can't thank Amazon enough for bringing this book into the sale,You wont be disappointed,less than £2, bargain of the year.
I hope Mr Hendry has more to come.Would make a great TV series....
