New territory for an old favourite
on 1 May 2017
I have a!ways enjoyed Christopher Moore's writing especially his San Francisco based stories. So I was intrigued by the premise of this and how he would deal with a very different milieu. Moore has clearly done his research and his use of some very British idioms is for the most part spot on and even where they miss fire they are still funny if unintentionally so.
Moore obviously has an abiding love and respect for the source material but isn't bound by its conventions or constrained by its reputation.
I did laugh a lot and I enjoyed the story but in comparison to his vampire stories this is a lesser work.
