Just when I was starting to despair of finding some decent reading matter, I discovered Tutt. These short stories are beautifully crafted. The author has a wonderful combination of writing skill and wit. I found a quote from Train which sums up his attitude to the law: "Court, a place where they dispense with justice."
A quirky but thoroughly enjoyable novel.
The central, character is a swash-buckling, self-important, self-centred, bullying, English-hating war-monger. You may empathise with him and despair of him by turns.
The story begins with an interesting piece of science-fiction but develops into a rollicking, pacey tale. I loved it.
I agree with both the positive and some of the negative comments. Yes - There are flaws, especially the spelling. But this is a free book. If you want perfection, go and buy a full-priced book where they can afford to pay an editor to correct the author's mistakes.
Rick has produced a terrific novel with some original ideas. It is definitely worth reading. Just enjoy it and ignore the minor flaws.
This is wonderful, gentle comedy with endearingly wacky characters. Just like an Ealing Comedy film.
