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…..
Made me laugh out loud. Start reading it and stay with it, it gets dafter and funnier as it goes on. Bit like Terry Pratchett meets Tolkien…..
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……..
Orbiting slowly with the great moon Maurice Minor, Ade and his best friend Randolf are on a mission. Ade’s, to find the father who deserted his mother and Randolf’s, to seek atonement for accidentally killing her. Not a good way to start an adventure, but things can only get worse.
The two friends leave Ade’s bar, The Minor’s Arms, to follow in Ade’s father’s footsteps. As neither man has ever been much further than the car park, they are soon lost, weary and hungry.
As they meander across the Minorian landscape, they are joined by Rover and Rufus, two of the meanest dogs with the worst breath since Lassie passed away.
Constantly at the back of Ade’s mind is the feeling that he’s in someone else’s tale. He’s just one chapter in a story that’s already been told…. But maybe not quite like this.
This is the true fable of a cruel and long journey that will finally lead them 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.
