About this deal

They took advise from nautical experts, who told them they would lose their boat and their lives (and, indeed, their whippet Jim). His references to places, people, poetry, art and movies and music sent me to look up things multiple times.

I was interested in the canal journey and parts made me laugh out loud but halfway through the book, it became repetitive particularly the descriptions of Jim the dog who has centre stage and as I am not a dog enthusiast just became tedious. It was a little difficult to keep up with the narrative at times because there was so much information and a labyrinth of digressions but what I did follow was enjoyable and at times quite amusing. I think this would be hard to follow if the book was intended as anything serious, but it's appropriate for the material - it is an entertainment, nothing more. Jim looked out of his kennel, his eyes wide-He begged me Your Honour, Steal my bone; he went down on his hands and knees.

Aliens, dicks, trolls, vandals, gongoozlers, killer fish and the walking dead all stand between our three innocents and their goal – many-towered Carcassonne. While I try to use images that I create sometimes that is not possible and so I use publicly available ones from the internet. With her flat roof, fairground lettering, brasses and flowers, a traditional narrowboat has a louche charm, though sixty feet by seven is a preposterous shape.

Like many Welshmen, he is talkative and confiding, ill at ease with practical matters, and liable to linger in pubs. When I woke up the next morning, and I wished I had not woken up the next morning, I realized that I had agreed to sail an inland boat across the English Channel, roped up to a madman. Clive, I said, you come from Dudley, you have been to sea once and you nearly didn't come back, and now you want to put at hazard the December years I could spend in the Star or watching Kylie Minogue on the box. Jim lies quietly under my feet, which is more than my secretary ever did, and sometimes he licks me behind the knees, and in forty years in business there was no chance of that.A classic example of someone with too much time on their hands that think they have a talent for writing to supplement their pension - can only assume Mr Darlington either used some of that pension to fund this book or he is related to the publisher.

His writing remains unformed and discursive; as someone else noted in the Goodreads review and is revealed in an interview transcript, the style is a kind of "stream of consciousness" effect.I don't really know any of the places in France so a bot more background information would have made it more enjoyable.
