One of the funniest books ever: Ignore the bad reviews here!
on 7 April 2014
Cannot believe anyone would dislike this book - its hilarious! I defy anyone to read the funeral scene without being reduced to uncontrollable fits of the giggles. It seems to me some of the people leaving bad reviews were expecting a straight "murder mystery" - they should've read the product description! And as for the genius who criticises that it was unrealistic - again, this is a FARCE, a black comedy! Its not meant to be "realistic". Nigel Williams is one of the most talented writers in modern English. (For a darker, straight crime novel by this author, try "Stalking Fiona".)
The Wimbledon Poisoner is highly recommended to anyone looking for a satirical comedy of manners with a very dark heart and plenty of belly laughs.
