Sad disappointment from an otherwise brilliant author
12 October 2014
I am a huge fan of Danny Kings books. Since I first read "The Burglar Diaries" many years ago, I've enjoyed all the books of his and normally they're all capable of making laugh out loud.
Maybe, it's me, but I just didn't get this book at all. It's not funny and I found it very confusing to read. Worse still, after struggling through it, I gave up at about halfway through and didn't bother to finish it. That's very unusual for me. I almost always finish any book I start (even when I think they're rubbish).
I'm not into reading about or watching films about zombies, so that might be part of it, but I didn't even get a smile our of it and normally Danny King is brilliant at humour. If you haven't read any of his other books then don't judge him on this one. He is a brilliant author, but (for me) failed completely with this particular book.
