Tinytown

Rated 5.00/5 based on 2 reviews
In a dystopian England in the 2050s, where technology is used to shrink people who cannot pay size insurance, Tom Flack must fight for the rights of the small. But he has big enemies, including his ex-wife - TV's Tallulah Twinkleplum - and her grotesque brother Lloyd. This first novel includes intrigue, action, humour, drugs, sex, plastic surgery and hedgehogs - but not necessarily in that order. More

Reviews

Review by: Martyn Taylor on Dec. 16, 2012 :
Recommended by a friend and now passing it on. This is a must read; bitingly funny, grotesquely larger than life and a little guy hero against the bad big world. Ex-in-laws who should be outlawed driven by greed and excess; debauched tastes, twisted pleasures and gate-crashing the party of the year; and the hedgehog, that is just so wrong! Snappy, gut-achingly funny descriptions and a darkly satirical edge. Brilliant!

Review by: A M Russell on Nov. 01, 2012 :
A completely brilliant novel! Inspired over the top comic futuristic sci-fi. I nearly walked into a lamp post while reading this on my android phone. Devilishly well observed characters; a crackingly good narrative, with astute political overtones; this world is one that I wish existed in more than one book. Sort of drug induced Jilly Cooper sex/equestrian scenes; a victimized good guy, a hideous ex wife, and something you really ought not to do with a hedgehog!
I will recommend this to everyone. When you get another book out I'm buying it! Thanks Darby, you made me laugh so hard I couldn't breathe. Looking forward to your next book.
