The second coming is nigh . . . it just happens to be coming at rather an inconvenient time.

It’s been an eventful month for the village of Little Collyweston: Reverend Andy Biddle, still trying to regain his dignity following an ill-advised omelette analogy during a sermon, teeters on the brink of scandal. Opinionated parishioner Sathan Petty-Saphon has spotted an opportun

Fantastic. My first 'must read' of 2012. Very cleverly put together, loved the tone and the pace. So very very English, laughed my way through it. ...more

No More Tea, Please

I won't be reviewing this one on my blog as I don't have much to say about it. Not to my taste -- was hoping for a bit more cleverness but it didn't seem to say anything meaningful and was a little too arch about sexuality for my taste. The cover was the best part of the book for me. Disappointed that I didn't like it more, as I had hoped I would!

Wonderfully written book with cleverly thought through characters who, at times, have a marvellous cringe-worthy-ness that hooked me even more. Definitely recommended read!

I adored this book - it was witty, refreshing and brilliantly written. As the reader, we're following the life (both professionally and personally) of Rev Andy Biddle and his life in St Barnabas and you can't but help love the character and the situations he finds himself in.

More Tea, Jesus is typical of village life - I found myself laughing with the familiar scenes being describe. I also found the best description of Committee life (especially in small town/village life):

I have mixed feelings with this book. It somehow feels as if it were put together from two different books, i.e. the first and the second half. The first part is hilarious. A really funny caricature of the English small town with some typical characters and their comings and goings. Also, it was quite funny how the author revealed the problems of the Church of England as he sees it. The trouble was I think that he suddenly wanted to dig too deep in the second half. The tone of the book turned in ...more

This is a great little book of what would happen should Jesus drop by and say hi! This is a very funny look at what happens when that happens in a little English town who are not really ready for it. This had me giggling all the way through.

If you want a nice light funny read then this is the book. A drunk vicar, making omelettes during services and even… yes, you guessed it… Jesus. The country-side of England will never be the same again.

Jesus appears in a parochial English village with a dreadful choir and some quite odd inhabitants and causes mayhem.
I giggled a lot during this story. Insightful and thoughtful as well as witty and amusing.

extremely funny, but also surprisingly moving. as comedic theological allegories go, it's rather a good one. ...more
