This is a great book. It's bone dry humour, wicked observations, and super storytelling. You hear it all the time, but in this instance it's true... I could not put it down. Truly looking forward to reading the continuing adventures of Mr Fisher.
I was surprised how much I enjoyed Fisher’s Fables. I wrongly suspected that the subject matter might be dull as it’s all about the machinations of a local Environmental Health department. It wasn’t dull at all, thanks to the skilful writing, interesting characters and wit of the author. Ditzy Admin support officer, Kelly, was my favourite character, with her unintentionally amusing, off-the-cuff comments.
Having worked for five soul-destroying years in a similar environment, I could easily relate to Kent Fisher’s frustrations and rebellious attitude. I chortled more often than I expected to whilst reading Fisher’s Fables. It’s always satisfying when pompous, plain silly bureaucrats or self-serving dignitaries of dubious character are intelligently ridiculed or have their plans scuppered. Kent Fisher often managed to do this, highlighting the lunacy of the endless acronyms, random changes for the sake of change and the inefficiencies of his department. His boss, Danni, was a nightmare yet a somewhat pathetic figure of fun. Without wishing to spoil the ending, I now need to read the sequel after a suspicious discovery was made at the end of Fisher’s Fables. Nicely done, Robert Crouch. You hooked me in.
In charting the vicissitudes of a typical bunch of office workers, the author has created what, on the surface, could so easily have been a straightforward and not-very-interesting account of day-to-day activities. However, Robert Crouch has brought a couple of things to this particular desk that shifts his creation from the ordinary to the intelligent. With a sharp eye for detail and an keen ear for dialogue, this is a witty and entertaining read with lots of potential for further adventures.
I read this book over a couple of days and thoroughly enjoyed it. Mr Crouch has a likeable writing style that's easy to read and hard to put down. In fact, the only thing missing is a damn good murder, but apparently, that's where Kent Fisher really gets his hands dirty in the follow-up: 'No Accident', the first book in Robert Crouch’s Kent Fisher Mysteries series. Sounds good to me.
