Review by: JB Lazarte on June 24, 2013 :
Benn Flore’s ‘Happily Divorced or How to Rob the Robber’ is a hilarious take on what probably is a common occurrence: getting divorced in your twilight years then being left with nothing but the clothes on your back.

Two old men, Harold and George meet each other in a strange time in their lives: they’re both recently divorced, broke, and probably facing the last few years of their lives in a very bad state. In such a situation, the two sort of team up to try to find a solution: rob the mafia.

The writing’s good and interesting, and the story has a lot of potential—if only it were truly fleshed out and is actually of novel length, then it would have feel more well-rounded and a deeply satisfying read. On the other hand, I gather there is actually a movie and Dutch play versions out there, so this ebook is something more like a foretaste of what you can expect. If anything, Flore’s story transforms what would have been an otherwise tragic circumstance (getting divorced and broke at 65) into something we can all laugh at—‘Happily Divorced or How to Rob the Robber’ will entertain you as long as the read, and will leave you pining for more.

This is short but it is good. It is a synopsis so you read this as a story without dialogues.

Vandaag gekocht, om de mogelijkheden voor theater te zien. Goede story voor vier, vijf of zes acteurs. Gelezen in het Engels. Met veel plezier. Sorry voor mijn commentaar in het Vlaams.
