The tale is hilariously told by way of British humour, but the thriller has dark subject matter. There is sex, murder, violence and explicit language. If you can handle it with being offended, this is a great read.
Admittedly, it starts fairly slowly but the lead character is realistic and likeable enough to hold your attention. The other main characters, introduced about a third of the way through the story are equally as realistic but not always as likable. Actually, that's probably an understatement; one character in particular is thoroughly disgusting and not someone who I would care to mix with (although his video collection may be worth borrowing!).
There are some great one liners (many of which would get me reported if I posted them here) and I found myself chuckling to myself on many an occasion.
When I finished reading this, I thought to myself, 'Yeah okay, that was good. Now on to the next book'. Strangely though, over the days following, my mind has revisited it and I have found myself wondering what Mike and his friends are doing now. I'm sure Aaron David has some ideas and I would love to read about them sometime.
