Jan Jacob Mekes is an English writer born in the body of a native Dutch speaker, in Rotterdam, in the Netherlands. He loves reading, writing, cycling, and photography. His favourite book is Don Quixote, he loves chocolate, and is a cat person. Re-reading this, he realizes this sounds like a profile on a dating site. In a way, that’s true, because I (said the inconsistent writer who switches to first person like the Hulk) want you to go on a date… not with me, but with my books. I love my readers!

I really enjoyed reading 'Struglend Tales'. It's set in a great fantasy land with hilarious characters and an amusing plot.
It's very well written and I am looking forward to reading more from Jan Jacob Mekes in the future.

Great humour in a smart fantasy setting. Comes complete with a gripping plot too!

This is the funniest and well written book I've read since the Harry Potter series. It's witty and it doesn't take itself too seriously.
I had to force myself to stop reading at 1 AM, because I was afraid of waking up my neighbors with my bursts of laughter. Read it at your own risk! I did my civic duty and warned you.
One more thing... I loved The Lord of the Rings, but I never saw Tolkien as a favorite author. I loved Harry Potter but I can't say I would read Rowling's other works.
Mekes is definitely something else. Better than the classics? No. Fresh and reinvigorating? Hell yeah.
