Very different style to the other books by Lynne, This is a funny, well crafted story about a totally disfunctional family. Within a few pages, the Dad finds himself with a wheelbarrow full of on-the-bone meat, whilst no-one knows where the mum is. It's classic farce combined with a decent story behind it. Liked it a lot. An easy read after the factual book Workhouse Porridge.
A lively story with plenty of comedy and action. I could picture this as a televised sitcom. Entertaining and light-hearted, the characters all have their own competing agendas and ulterior motives. It’s certainly the family you don’t want to live next door to but who you can’t help peering over the fence at to see what they’re up to now. Would like to read a sequel!
