An intriguing concept of the very human condition of a man’s pursuit for luxury and status through possessions to the point of allowing his life – and that of his family – to be controlled from beyond the grave in order to attain them.
This is a light-hearted read consisting of a series of vignettes in the main character’s workplace, home and an acquired allotment where he interplays with a disparate group of characters that promise more humour and situations than the book actually delivers. For me there was something missing and I do believe this would work better as a screenplay than a novel, thus allowing the actors to fill out the characters whom I found underdeveloped – quite a shame as I was sad for the author since she has created a work with a huge potential, that just fell short for me.
There is an abundance of humour in the story that is mostly delivered in narrative metaphors and one-liners that would have greater effect coming from the characters out of their dialogue and situations.
The cover is eye catching and appealing and the star of the show is a DB4 Aston Martin.
This is a story about absolutely nothing, but the author sure has a gift for using thousands of words to convey the 'nothing'.
I would confess to just zooming past tracks of 'nothing' - in the unfulfilled hope that there would be something happening - only to be disappointed.
Cute title :-) !!!
The Aston Martin and the allotment?
What about the house? Money? His mother's jewellery?
To say the least, Eric is not a happy man.
In order to keep the AM, Eric has to tend to the allotment for two full years, or it will be taken by the bailiffs.
Join Eric, Suzy and Abi in their slightly less than epic journey back to family values.
Again, brilliant read. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
Although, it's "wracking your brain" not " racking". One means to search your mind, the other means putting on a shelf or rack. 😉
