Singer-songwriter MJ Hibbett has always been game for trying something new, and having previously blurred the lines between gig, stand-up and rock opera, now goes one further with a medium containing no singing at all - the novel (though I suppose you could always sing it if you felt so inclined). Storm House is one of those organisations charged with quietly protecting Britain from the rum and uncanny - Torchwood with less of the moping and the old in-out, or the Folly if everything were held t ...more

I can't give this a star rating as I know the author, but this was a very jolly romp around London with some statues that had come to life and the secret agency appointed to stop them. I particularly liked the Easter Island head that spoke in 60s slang, and several passages on the joy of filing.

A hugely fun adventure comedy aimed at kids but will definitely win over the adults too, especially ones like me who are big fans of Hibbett's GRATE POP CAREER. I could picture the film as I was reading so its little surprise this started as a screenplay and I hope one day "Storm House" gets its big screen call up papers. And remember: this is not a library...

Found via the joy of pop.

A fun little book with more than a whiff of Douglas Adams. Would be good for younger readers though they may struggle with the occasional reference.

The debut novel by Internationally adored rockstar/comedian Mr Mark Hibbett is definitely a case of 'Pretty much what I'd expect'... and that's by no means a bad thing. Anybody already familiar with Mark's work (and he literally does have DOZENS of fans) will be delighted by these 300ish pages of, well, Textbook Hibbett - consistent with the fantastic mind which previously gave us Rock Operas such as Dinosaur Planet, Moon Horse Vs The Mars Men of Jupiter, Total Hero Team and Hey Hey 16K.

Well worth a read, it's silly but endearingly funny.

a good fun read with a little bit of everything thru out the book as there's Sci Fi monsters, inner city disaster, train station showdowns, trips to the pub, IT staff, and of course, descriptions of the mundanities of office work rendered in painstaking (but, nonetheless, affectionate) detail as always. There's even a sneaky mention of a ZX Spectrum slipped in for good measure.. A little like Doctor Who in ways. A must READ for all as it's ente
