What a fantastic read. Quite unlike anything I’ve read before but all the better for that. Had me laughing out loud in places and finished the book wanting more……
I re-entered a world that I had somehow forgotten over the years, where a perverse logic ruled as the author led me blindly onwards laughing all the way…….
This ebook is a light-hearted, amusing adventure. I was tickled by the eclectic mix of characters and their extraodinary dialogue, which strangely was so understandable……
A melding of Pratchett and Douglas Adams with well written, if somewhat bizarre, scenarios…..
What can I say? It’s a crazy story; it left me baffled many times. I’m so confused. Eccentric story! Just because it was so strange, it left me laughing. You’ll have to read it for yourself to figure out why I gave it five stars. Maybe even then you won’t figure out why I gave it five stars.
I can’t figure it out myself……..
Two men are on a mission – Ade to find the father who deserted his mother and Randolf to seek atonement for killing her. Not a good way to start an adventure but things can only get worse.
The two friends leave the Minor’s Arms to follow in Ade’s father’s footsteps, but as neither man has ever been much further than the car park, they are soon lost, weary and hungry.
Meandering across the Minorian landscape they are joined by Rover and Rufus, two of the meanest dogs with the worst breath since Lassie passed away. How can two dogs and two men get it so wrong as they manage to upset every dragon, creature, god and dancer they bump into…. Which is a real shame as Ade is doomed to save most of them.
Also Ade’s can’t quite get out of his mind the nagging feeling that he’s in someone else’s tale. He’s just one chapter in a story that’s already been told…… but never quite like this.
This is the true fable of a cruel and long journey that will finally lead the four companions to the Dragon’s Mountain and the heartbreaking end to their quest. It is a story with the breadth and sweep of a dead dog’s tail.
