Won in the raffle at the Northampton un-con , not sure if it's my cup of tea , will give it a bash sometime


Well , I read it , very interesting novel in regards as to how England viewed Brexit , following a family and friends as they each dealt with it in different ways.

As a Scotsman who voted remain , I still look in disbelief at how easy the working class and poor of England were duped into voting for it , and this book shows how they were mislead by the upper classes perfectly.

Thanks Minnesota84. The book packaging got a bit damaged en route but the book survived undamaged.

I was really not enjoying this book until page 164 or thereabouts. Then I suddenly saw the funny side and became gripped. It is the most depressing satire about the last ten years of being British (or more accurately English) but it captures the awfulness with humour.

Exactly the same thing happened to me as Poodlesister: thought it was a bit boring until ~150 or so pages, then suddenly started to enjoy it. Great satire & no doubt even greater to those who follow the British politics at closer distance...
