    Another fantastic little tale It does have a rather uneven start and to be honest I did consider abandoning it However it sorts itself out rather nicely once the characters have been fleshed out and makes for a very entertaining g and lighthearted read Nice work Mr Luddington

  2. David Luddington says:

    As the author of this book I feel it beholden upon me to award it five stars and to say how much I enjoyed it I love the old Ealing Comedies of the fifties and the sixties and miss the warm gentle humour of that period so I set out to recreate that in my writing I only hope that I have the skills necessary to do justice to those wonderful writers who made me laugh for all those years David

    not my cup of tea

    This was my fourth read from this author And I am hooked I am reminded of the early John Irving's uirky characters and outrageous situations though without the self indulgence of the American dream It is off the wall satirical critical tongue in cheek sometimes downright annoying but always bang on point with its logic in justifying greed and the redundancy of Cold War spies The present plot was close to that of the The Bank of Goodliness however the reinvented main character and the violence he brings to the story had it come into its own

    I read this after reading The Bank of Goodliness by the same author which I really enjoyed This is in a similar vein in some ways people out of place in a cornish village subterfuge but this one didn't seem to fit together uite as well and it didn't hold my attention as well either Nevertheless I found it entertaining and funny conjuring up some hilarious images Im glad I found this author and will shortly be working through of his books

    A gentle funny taleThis story reminded me of a modern version of the old Ealing Comedy films It moved along at a fast pace and there was even one or two laugh out loud moments If you like your comedy gentle and non threatening then this is the book for you

    Another winnerThis is my second book written by its Author I was not disappointed The basic plot is familiar but the characters aren't They are crafty Their solutions are uniue

    Mr Luddington strikes againAnother excellent book albeit with a totally different type of lead character A good old fashioned bit of greed thrown in with a village lost in time makes for a worthwhile read

  9. Jacky Mercury says:

    Good British comedyA spy's final mission missing millions and some very determined and resourceful villagers in Cornwall make for a comedy that's begging to be a film I keep picturing Daniel Craig as the spy Another fab book from David Luddington
