Regardless of a few patches that could have used the heavy hand of an editor, it's still fun and interesting enough that I'm buying the next installment.
The writing style, story line and dialog were just not something I could enjoy.

I read the sample, and found it quite refreshing. The sample was easy to read and fun. I liked it because traditional world class novels start in the beginning of nowhere, talking about characters you don't know and expecting you to do the work of taking in everything, but this book did not require any thinking. For only £1.50, how could I go wrong?
The rest of the book is written in the same style as the sample, consisting of about 90% dialogue. This is not the normal way to write a book, but not necessarily a bad thing. The story has a clever plot and the author has obviously put a lot of thought into it.
On the down side, there are some areas which could be improved:
- The target audience is immature males. This is not necessarily a bad thing, but if you don't like reading hundreds of pages about "baps", don't read this book.
- It's too long. Eric, the main character, is a bit stupid, and while this is the main reason this book is fun to read, he does tend to repeat many things either in his thoughts or his dialogue. This, combined with endless the dialogue on "baps", make the book about three or four times longer than it needs to be.
- Most of the book is written in a Geordie accent. I don't really know what a Geordie accent is, probably because I didn't grow up in the UK. It started off being a bit humorous at first, but as the book goes on and on, it gets quite annoying. After reading many pages, I found myself starting to think in an accent that I don't even know.
To sum up, if you like female anatomy, enjoy reading fun books, don't mind very long dialogue and endless Geordie accents, and are happy to read all of the other books, then this is the book for you.

I have serious doubts about the five star reviews being genuine.
Would thoroughly recommend. Is an engaging, light hearted read.
