Rating: 4 out of 5

The follow on book to “News from Gardenia”, which I loved, this book follows Gavin’s journey through an equally strange (to him) England. I didn’t find this as engaging and richly transportive as “News from Gardenia” but I still enjoyed it. The character of Gavin is very well put together and his responses to the various events that happens to him seem to be appropriate and well described.

I did find the level of copy editing errors annoying tho - things like ‘damn’ instead of ‘dam’, “move” instead of “moved”, “thatday” instead of “that day”, “peace” instead of “piece”. I ended up noting them on my kindle which is a really good indication that there were too many of them. A shame as it distracted from an entertaining piece of writing.
