This review is from: Blott On The Landscape (Kindle Edition)
This is a funny, funny book in a very British way. (Despite the main character being Ger.. sorry Italian!) .
There are some good characters in this book, and the plot twists and turns fiendishly. The humour is not forced - it is just the truly ridiculous situations the characters find/put themselves in. Corrupt politicians with dodgy personal penchants, anal bureaucrats, power mad officials, and a good sprinkling of some very eccentric characters make for plenty of fun and games.
Why didn't I give it four stars.. I am not sure. I suppose for four stars a book has to really move me, not just amuse me. This amused me a lot so may be I am being pedantic. I admire very much the tortuous plot. Its an amazing mind that can dream up this kind of stuff.
