Blister by Brian Morrison

The madcap antics of a group of eccentric individuals living in a Cotswolds New Town. The Easter weekend will never be the same again.

An Easter weekend in a small conservation village in the English Cotswolds. What could be more idyllic? The residents of Broxley would remember this event-filled weekend for the rest of their lives.
- NUCLEAR MELTDOWN IN THE COTSWOLDS -
ENGLISH LAKE IS HAUNTED -
PREHISTORIC CREATURE IS MURDERED -
All of these headlines were being prepared for the Sunday newspaper early editions, but the editors were holding back to see which story carried the truth,
Several facts remained absolute - a kinky parish priest was on the loose - a gifted clairvoyant was being possessed by an evil spirit - a murder had been committed and a dim-witted young Welsh man had brought the whole nation to a standstill.

    Brian. This book is FULL of laugh out loud moments. I loved it. I have to agree with Derryl Flynn that your observations are spot on. I only managed to read the first page but I will be back for the rest later this afternoon. Who on earth calls their dog Necropolis by the way???...funny as :-) I have rated your book highly and backed it all the way. Please feel free to pop over to my profile and meet ...

    Thanks Derryl. [QUOTE] Having scratched around all morning looking for something worth commenting on, I gave it up as a bad job & decided to go to my shelf for a good read. I backed Blister some time ago on the back of TLR (which is brilliant) & decided to revisit this quirky, eccentric & often hilarious farce. It's the cleverly observed quintessentialy English take on middle class suburbia, where mundane meets madness, irreverence morphs into bizzare, & where sexual ...

    I was trying to imagine calling Necropilis in for his dinner. It's quite a mouthful. Necropolis! Necropolis! Necropolis! A very cute idea for a name though. You are definitely going to be one of my favourite authors, with your quirky sense of humour. Your mind would be a fascinating place to visit. I have no choice but to back this.

    Brian -

    Blister - Eccentrics in a conservation village - gossip, media, it's bound to get a few facts crossed, a few minds twisted. Good fun, enjoyable writing, too.

    Backed, Pia (Course of Mirrors)

    Amusing, quirky opening with the great viewpoint of the dog, well told, well paced, makes you want to continue on....

    Brian, your opening chapter is quite amusing and flows freely. I can't nitpick anything in that section. Good job and good luck.

    Backed with pleasure.

    Very, very funny stuff. Reminded me a great deal of Tom Sharpe. Anyway, I read three chapters and the time flew by, which is a great sign. I laughed out loud on a few occasions and I am delighted to back it. It is mischevious, witty and very clever. Well done

    Wow!

    What an intelligent, hilarious, and superbly written work! Highly entertaining, at the same time what a great satire and study of human minds.

    Totally love it!

    Backed with true pleasure.
