• Midsummer’s review

    05 April 2019

    There was a lovely new reader's review for Midsummer's Bottom (my most recent novel for adult readers, released under the name of Darren Dash) by a fan called Jordan over on the Amazon UK site recently. I don't normally flag up fan reviews, but this was a lengthy one, which must have taken a lot of time and effort to compose, so I felt it was worthy of being highlighted here. Some of the remarks were:


    "...it's not like most of the other work Darren Shan/Dash has put out but I'm glad to say it is very funny there were several moments where I actually burst out laughing while reading..."


    "Taking a risk to write something so completely different from all his other work was a huge gamble but it absolutely paid off as this book is fantastic..."


    "At the start I didn't really like the characters because they all seemed to have unlikeable traits, but... as you read on you really do get attached to them and you're really rooting for the best to happen to them... when you get to know their personalities and see how funny and likeable they actually are..."


    "This book is as much as a comedy as it is a drama and I'm glad to say that the execution of both of these genre's was handled spectacularly..."


    I love it when one of my stories connects with readers so deeply -- and I love it even more when they take the time to let me know by emailing me, or better still, let others know by writing a review like this. I'm giving Jordan a big virtual High Five, and I don't even mind that he got the name of the main character wrong while posting the review!!! :-) :-) :-)
