Hard to get into but worth persevering

I read his first book "He Died with a Felafel in his Hand" and thoroughly enjoyed it. This is very similar but has more structure than the motley assortment of stories in the previous book. Having said that I thought this book was less funny, although it does have its laugh out loud moments. I thought it was slow to start and I found trouble warming to the characters, but about half way through things picked up pace and I never looked back.
