Mr A Fletcher – 5 stars
I read this in one sitting this evening and thoroughly enjoyed it. I would describe as auto-biographic more so than travel guide, with gentle underpinning theme that there is nowt as strange as folk. There was much to relate to, whether being a cultural fish out of water in a European country, attempting to drive to obscure places, optimum temperature arguments, Public Sector corporate twaddle, childish humour and sense of fun. This would be a perfect book to pick up at an airport, whether for the in-flight read or lounging in the sun of an afternoon.
I’d also heartily recommend the author’s last novel, Lifeform Three, being possibly the best sci-fi I’ve read in the last few years.
