  • Lewis and Loeb (a novella) on Jan. 03, 2014

    I downloaded this on a whim, just because it was free - now I'm taking the time to post a review because it's one of those books that makes you feel that you just have to spread the word, and pester your friends and relations until they read it and agree how brilliant it is. It's pretty short, but I lost count of the number of times I laughed out loud.
  • Lewis L'Amour (a novella) on Nov. 23, 2016
    (no rating)
    I loved the first one and this is just as good. Every couple of pages has at least one sentence that made me laugh out loud: 'The porter put down his suitcase and asked, "Do you want company?" Lewis squinted at this mustachioed teenager, now casually scratching a food stain on his tunic. "Don't you have work to do?"' Lewis retains his old familiar mix of cynicism and niaivete, his complete inability to realise that the reading public has zero interest in Numidian tax disputes, and his ability to throw away every marvellous opportunity that is presented to him. Only one gripe - please let the next book have more Ludmilla!
  • Red Hills of Africa (a novella) on Nov. 28, 2016

    "Erotic adventure, madness, and death in North Africa. Something to look forward to, then." Oh God, I really can't describe how much I love these books. In this one, we follow a vegetarian Hemmingway-obsessive, a tart from Wollongong, an ex-Marine with a permanent errection and sundry others across Europe and North Africa. I laughed out loud frequently
