5.0 out of 5 stars A seriously funny book, 11 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: It's All About Danny (Laugh-out-loud Tom Sharpe style comedy) (Kindle Edition)
There's an awful lot to like here - starting with the hero, Danny, who despite his many faults (to which the three Kathys in his life will attest, at length) is a thoroughly likeable chap. He's neatly counterpointed by the gauche and clumsy Larry, the scientist who's constantly getting into trouble with the police for reasons that take him quite by surprise; the sophisticated diplomat Shirley Temple, who finds herself unnaturally drawn to Danny; and the lascivious Chairman, who can't get laid even though he's rolling in it.

It's an odyssey through Danny's voyage of self-discovery - after all, as he says, it may be great taking a holiday from yourself but "you can't go on holiday forever". With many twists and turns, unexpected happenings and many very funny scenes, It's All About Danny romps through its story with clever plot devices and genuine humour.

This is Curtis's third and funniest book, and also the most controlled: a thoroughly well-written, tight, and very entertaining read. 99p well spent.

This seems at first glance to be the most shameless and poorly thought through piece of self-publicity; I have no objection to that in itself, it is all over Amazon and most people can spot them and avoid them, but what you have here should be in the BLURB or 'description', not in suppposed review. And the title also breaks Amazon rules: the title must NOT contain product description (especially if untrue, as in the case of the sample I read). If you are going to self-publicise at least have the common sense to not just review both your own books and give them 5 stars - that is a dead giveaway (click on 'other reviews by this reviewer' to check this little trick) 'Stanly Knife'? Please! And if you ARE 'real' can you make your reviews meaningful and useful not just a list to prove you read the thing?
Thoughts on theb ook itself? Read the sample. I suggest you do the same. Nothing more to say.
