Review of Like Just a Bit of Banter by Chris Westlake

Like Just a Bit of Banter
Chris Westlake

Hero to zero and then...? Experience the world as seen through the eyes of Nick Evans, a young city-slicker with a trophy-girlfriend on his arm. Fast-forward just a day and he's caught his girlfriend in an uncompromising position with his friend, accidentally sent a rude email to his boss - and he's on his way home to South Wales with his tail firmly between his legs. Unemployed and single, life seems oh-so simple for Nick back in Southerndown, a coastal village where sheep vastly outnumber people. But there are mysteries everywhere. What secrets are taunting best friend Den? What is it Dad does in the shed at the bottom of the garden? Why have Nan and Mum not spoken for as long as Nick can remember? And whatever happened to childhood friend Sam, who mysteriously disappeared just after A-Levels and has not been seen since...? Enjoy the journey as Nick tries desperately tries to unravel the mysteries and piece his life together again, often with darkly hilarious results..

This was a good book.  Didn't really hold by attention like I'd hoped but was worth reading. This is the first book I've read this author.

I rate this book 3 1/2 stars
