Derek is back and in just as much trouble (if not more) than usual. Once again Mac Black has taken his readers on a journey into the mind of the unlikely hero/protagonist Derek and his mad family.
I liked this book even more than the last one. After the last book, where Derek made some great and important discoveries about himself and his family, this book continued on giving us information to fill in the gaps and get a better understanding of his position.
With goofy characters from previous books and new drama for Derek, this book is full of giggles and unbelievable situations that the author manages to make believable.
One of my favourite things about this series is the Scottish Dialogue Mac Black includes, and this book is no exception. Derek and his family keep me entertained and always looking forward to their next grand adventure.
I also appreciated that Derek had more than a small taste of success in this book (much deserved) but that things didn’t go exactly as one would expect for a guy who has already been through so much.
The writing is easy to read and interesting, so turning pages is no problem. It is always a mystery to see what will happen to poor Derek next.
When you read these books, you get a sense of the author’s personality. The funny things that happen between Derek and his wife prove that Mac Black is right in his author bio at the end of the book–he has been married a long time. I love that he can reflect his own experiences in his books.
I would happily recommend this book to anyone who enjoys comic relief and series about families and strong bonds.
The question remains…what can he possibly get himself into next, that Derek?
