I'm not much for comedy (to compare: the authors I find most amusing are Ben Elton and Graham Greene) but it was well done and did elicit a few giggles at times. Mostly written in conversational form between Chip, the other guests and his womanising boss it had the added flash backs that told the story of how it came to be and was astonishingly well written and with a clever director could translate well to film (it is a very visual novel). It was entertaining enough that I will be going in search of Nick Walkers other books.
