Review of The Four Gs, by Leigh Parker

The 4 GsAuthor, Leigh Parker sent me a PDF copy of her newest novella, The 4 Gs. It’s number 13 on my Taking Care of my Own challenge.

Description from Goodreads:
After an incident involving the Chav Triplets, a canal and the police, Dominic Barrett is forced to have 10 sessions of therapy with Jo, an San Franciscan who doesn’t quite seem to grasp the concept of listening.

This is the sort of book that’s fun to read because of its basic random craziness and sideways social critiques. You simply never know what is coming, but you can sadly relate to the ridiculous ironies once they appear…and can’t help laughing at them either.

True to Parker’s style, the writing is sarcastic and the Northern (Yorkshire) voice readily apparent. It’s always a pleasure to read and this is no exception.

I also really appreciated recognising Alex’s place of employment and one particular dinner scene from the 10 Ways series (which I love). That sort of crossover always amuses me.

Final word: well worth the 90 minutes or so it too me to read.
