Light relief

Sick of meaningful novels full of angst? Fed up with soul searching by boring characters you wouldn't want to get trapped at a party with? Totally over murder mysteries of horrible goriness and sadistic violence so loaded with forensic detail you can't sleep well for days? This book is for you. A totally ironic, witty gallop through bits of England with lashings of irrelevant history thrown in as well as a not entirely fully explained murder/suicide. Best not to enquire too closely. Brilliantly narrated with tongue firmly in cheek which is where the entire novel has it. Cant wait for more of the same.
