Reviews of the Botolf Chronicles (part I & II) on Amazon.com & Goodreads
“A real (and hilarious) roller-coaster ride of multiple characters and incidents and invention, leaping between worlds, time periods and storylines till you wonder how on earth(s) this author is going to pull it all together - and then, amazingly, it all clicks into place with one more rip-roaring invention.”
“Intelligent humour, wit and sarcasm. ”
“This book is clever, amusing, entertaining and treads the fine line between brilliance and insanity pretty much all the way through!”
“Simply put, if you like your kicks on the surreal side, look no further.”
"This book is clever, amusing, entertaining and treads the fine line between brilliance and insanity pretty much all the way through! The absurdity level is off the charts yet all this does is make it all the more brilliant and funny. This was very interesting and unique read. I'll be looking forward to seeing what else this writer comes up with!"
"I thoroughly enjoyed reading this first instalment of the Botolf Chronicles and anxiously await the next in the series. I was drawn in to the story by some very clever and funny prose and dialogue but stayed for the characters, some of whom you love and some you love to hate.
Bring on the next one! ”
