This is good fun but the deus ex machina ending had me puzzled - reinforcing a sense that the authors had grown tired of their project and couldn't think of a cleaner way to "finish" it. Mr Pooter's many excruciating puns are very enjoyable - we howled - and his tragic lack of self-awareness seems ahead of its time.

I am still not sure if I had read this before... the scenes in which Pooter paints everything red, or black, were very familiar, particularly. Maybe I have seen part of a film/TV adaptation somewhere along the line. Anyway I can't complain about not getting my money's worth as this is one of the range of books amazon has available for free download for kindle.
