Tracing various meanings of the acronym “fubar,” the story chronicles the adventures of an array of characters from diverse cultural, social and ethnic backgrounds, all of whom strive to leave their mark—at times in legitimate and at times in iniquitous ways. Among them are Fergus Ulysses Barr, the timid scion of Britain’s selfish aristocracy, Dwayne Junior Zobinsky, the o ...more

An interesting read yet again from Paddy Bostock, this is just what I needed during the long journey I had to take recently.

It starts with how the acronym for FUBAR as a slang and how the characters associated with the lead character and others find their way around what life throws them.

I loved Tosh and his Mutt and would have loved it if Tosh did not just take in his mum when she had a "change" of heart once he became famous. That's just my personal opinion but everyone's POV is different.

This novel starts out funny and ends up even funnier...

We regularly face a number of incidences that make all of us understand just how ridiculous or evil some people's behavior or ideas might be. Satire is the capability of showing, basically ridiculing these kinds of incidences by utilizing humor or hyperbole. It may be specific at nation-wide politics, society, tradition or individual people. Satire focuses on raising an individual's mind by smartly and shrewdly getting glimpses associated wi

A thoroughly entertaining and irreverent look at the political world today.

Over the years some unusual children’s names have had their time in the spotlight, such as Mercedes, Beyoncé, and Lovely. However, there are others, which have been chosen specially by doting parents, who are sometimes extremely short-sighted, or perhaps not worldly-wise, like Lord Xavier and Lady Hermione Barr. They chose to call their first, and only son Fergus Ulysses. A grand name, however one which was to be both his

According to the dictionary Fubar means; out of working order; seriously, perhaps irreparably, damaged: "the clock in the hall is fubar". A very well descript for this entertaining book. As with all the author's books, he is taking on the political, upper-class and every other area in society in a witty stride.
Filled with colourful characters, Fubar did not disappoint. When you add Brexit and Klank, President of the US, and a Russian mob to the mix you sure have a mixture of apt proportion that
