"The problem with political jokes is that they get elected."...

George Bernard Shaw once said, "The problem with political jokes is that they get elected." People enjoy political humor because it’s something that everyone can relate to. The public generally blames the government for everything, so everyone basically appreciates humor in politics. In truth, this particular source of hilarity is almost always delivered in a satire-like manner. It’s generally amusing, and it doesn’t detract from the

Political satire is not something I usually read but picking up this book was the best decision I have made so far in this COVID-19 lockdown. It is a contemporary political satire with a fantasy twist and amazingly written. I loved the characters and how they were portrayed, and you could feel the character development throughout this book which was refreshing. As the millennials put it, I found this book “woke.” For example, the following highlighted colonialism and fascism and honestly, it’s r ...more

An entertaining, witty political story, you just won’t want to put down!

I love Paddy Bostock’s witty writing style and this new book is a classic example of a clever political novel with a great plot, excellent characters, and plenty of twists and turns. The author’s brilliantly descriptive writing enables him to treat his readers to wonderful scenes, and stage incredibly funny incidents, making this another unforgettable winning story.

Retired MI6 agent Mervyn Iain Vincent, has a lot on his mind

Picked up the book My Kind of Guy after reading the intriguing snippet of the book.

I absolutely loved the story of Lizzie and Leon and the transformation of a character - got to love second chances! Having that said, this was not all roses and sunshine, rather a book filled with surprising twists, turns, heartache, hope, love, sarcasm, and of course, a whole lot of politics and undercover action.

If you want to take a diversion from mindless reads, into a well-written political satire and thril

This is a wonderful contemporary comedy with a twist of romance and fantasy. I love the story on so many levels. It is also poignant in places as it sadly describes the political realm of the United States and its disastrous leadership now.

Not too many people are happy with the way the US is being led and how democratic systems that were prized and cherished are now under attack. It can be hard to listen to a leader who has so much that is opposed to some of the leading historical principles th

The publisher recommended this book to me, for an unbiased review. A story I thoroughly enjoyed.
The spy-ish fantasy plotline transported me to the political landscape which stretched across the board. In the typical tongue-in-the-cheek humour or sarcasm this author is well-known for. Through the quirky lines, you got to know Doctor Mervyn, his trusted Suzi, and Lizzie and her trusted Jurgen to be the spilling point of the spy-rescue-Leo story which took me from London to Munich with quick dashe
