    Title is a perfect match for story.

    I gave this story 5* because it’s worth it. Wow! This is fantastic. It’s a superb blockbuster of an exciting adventure. I’ve never read anything like it. Everyone should read this...especially, those who live in the U.K. or have an affinity with the country. It’s the type of story that you’d expect to be read by many millions and for those that don’t read it...then, they’re missing out. In parts, it’s so hilarious that i almost split my sides. This author thinks of everything and bears further scrutiny in the future because I’m sure there’s more to come. We haven’t heard the last of this gifted writer.

    The title is most appropriate.

    I decided to give this story 5* because it makes a rather enjoyable read over a quiet weekend. This novel as a good plot and the setting/theme is realistic. The first two parts, which is probably about a fifth or less of the story; sort of sets the scene...that is – the Prelude and the Prologue – which are historical. From Chapter 1 onwards, we’re in the present day; then, the story doesn’t half move along and from this point onwards it is told mostly in physical action and dialogue and there definately is no short of conversations between the various characters that are spread throughout the novel. Occasionally, there is a brief recap of the historical sections. The story is quite witty in parts. No doubt due to certain ingredients that truly fall into the category of Black Humour. The dialogue is good. From an actor’s point of view, it might be considered excellent. In actual fact, the humour is spot-on and there are some superb one-liners. The characters, specifically the four underdogs; are true to life, quite easy to believe and easily identifiable. These employees might be bitter towards their employers. After all, if they’re treated badly by the people they work for one can hardly expect them to give their masters a glowing tribute. Having said that, this attitude that these four have towards those above – referred to as the ‘big six’ – makes them all the more believable. The villains in this story consist of two sole proprietors – one male and one female – who each run their own business as it were. Another two are Americans – brothers I might add – living and working in the UK. Finally, two more villains – who run another business – are a couple of serial killers with a strange sense of humour that go around committing some rather unusual murders. My favourite character is the vicar. He’s incredible. All in all, a jolly good read and highly commended by an avid reader.
