really liked it

I bought this because I slightly know Béla on the internet, he mentioned it on Facebook, and it was only £1.95, i.e. practically free. And I probably did read the description on Amazon when I bought it, but by the time I came to read it I'd forgotten that. And of course with the Kindle, one you've downloaded a book, all it is is one title in a list: there are no cover or blurbs to remind you.

Which is a long-winded way of saying that I started reading it with almost no preconceptions at all — no idea what it was about, or what the tone of it was likely to be. I couldn't even remember with absolute certainty whether it was a novel or something else.

I was pleasantly surprised. It's a comic novel about art and artists, mainly, and it's inventive and slightly peculiar; but most importantly it is actually, genuinely funny. Which is not something which can be said of all comic novels.
