They keep coming...this one from someone in authonomy.com who's already met my writing in 'Bethlehem Fiasco'.
I came in to this read with certain expectations - and I was not
disappointed. Despite the fact that poor Telausis meets a sticky end,
speared and blown to bits, your quirky storyline immediately captivates
the attention, and the sardonic humour absolutely shines, just as in The
Bethlehem Fiasco. It is done with such a light but deft touch, so that
the prose just races along and carries us with it, without the humour
ever feeling forced.
For example, from the use of Ivor Tickonme
and Arthur Greenwire just after we are told of the bomb, to ‘shuffling
in fluffy slippers’ - you take us from the sublime to the ridiculous
quite effortlessly, and it’s just lovely. And then we get to meet god,
his assistant and his morning coffee in chp 2 - just as I’d hoped and
expected. There was no way that I was not going to read on to chp 3,
and again, I’m glad I did, because now I can’t wait to find out how
Sipho and Kang Dee are going to deal with the threat from the unseen
Your writing is accomplished, fresh, and highly entertaining.
