Ah, Aberystwyth Noir. I liked the first one. By the end of the second one the joke was starting to seem a bit old. When this, the third one, first came out I just rolled my eyes and thought, still flogging that old horse? But when it crossed my path a few years later I thought I'd give it another try.
It took me aaaaaaages to read it. It's only, what, 259 pages long. It's not difficult. What's the problem? Nothing I can put my finger on. It just didn't call to me to be picked up like other books do. I didn't rush to get my work out of the way so that I could get back to reading it. I didn't feel the need to read it during lunch breaks or to park my daughter in front of the TV so I could fit another couple of chapters in while her attention was elsewhere #badparent.
In all, fair to average at best. Oh, and it's supposed to be "comic fantasy". It didn't make me laugh. I didn't even crack a smile. Not once.
AVL for now. Actually no. RESERVED for Dublin.
