Book Review: Dating In The Dark by Pete Sortwell
A Good Snigger
It’s said that you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, but this one just said, “read me!” I am pleased to say that I was not disappointed. This is a thoroughly entertaining comedy. With lines such as, “I had some money, but not enough to buy a whole dog,” I chuckled through most of the book.
The antics that Jason gets up to with his lies are so natural that we can easily imagine ourselves in a similar situation. Then there are the dogs. One pretty much eats everything, and that alone is particularly amusing. There is also a Russian taxi driver. He manages to speak sense through his excessive drinking and smoking.
Overall, Dating In The Dark is very well written. The style is not exactly slapstick, but is it neither formal nor stifled. There is no harshness or gratuitous bad language either, which will please many readers.
Pete Sortwell has an easy way of narrating and the use of the first person fits the book. It’s neither too casual nor overly friendly, but almost as if he has a glimpse into my own thought patterns. If you are looking for a humorous, feel-good read, Dating In The Dark is a sure bet.
