really liked it

** spoiler alert ** Quite how some people get themselves into these wacky projects is beyond me, but I’m glad they do as they make for entertaining reading.

Join me is a simple premise. Danny finds out that a recently deceased uncle set up an island commune and he sets out to create his own commune in equal number to pay homage. So he places and in the local papers saying “JOIN ME” and a telephone number. Rather surprisingly people do start to call and join Danny.

So what to do with you collective when you finally get it? Thankfully Danny eschews thoughts of world domination through force of arms and set’s the group to doing random acts of kindness each Friday. Something simple and achievable. And he calls it the Karma Army. Nice.

All in all it’s a very funny book and a lovely idea and he meets some right characters along the way.

Good stuff.
