Fantastic - comedy with a real plot!
on 5 January 2014
The Plob books are nothing like any comedy fantasy I have read before. Plob is a wizard in training and really can do magic, his master is even more powerful. The dragons really do fly and spit fire, the warriors really can fight, the maidens are all beautiful and have proper personalities, the evil characters really are merciless, cruel and, err, evil. Just like any other fantasy book. Now imagine the story as it might be told by a stand-up comic on a boozy Saturday night in your local pub, with constant asides, characters and places with silly names, lashings of toilet humour. Now you've got some idea what the Plob trilogy is like. But only some idea, you have to experience it to understand it. I'm glad I did!
