The Satsuma Complex By Bob Mortimer

The Satsuma Complex By Bob Mortimer

Gary Thorn goes for a pint with a work acquaintance called Brendan. When Brendan leaves early, Gary meets a girl in the pub. He doesn’t catch her name, but falls for her anyway. When she suddenly disappears without saying goodbye, all Gary has to remember her by is the book she was reading: The Satsuma Complex. But when Brendan goes missing, Gary needs to track down the girl he now calls Satsuma to get some answers.

And so begins Gary’s quest, through the estates and pie shops of South London, to finally bring some love and excitement into his unremarkable life…

My Thoughts:

I always worry when comedians or people in the public eye write books but I really am a big fan of Bob so decided to take a chance and I am so glad I did. This book when it came out got a lot of hype and I can really see why. It was absolutely bloody amazing. When reading it I could hear Bob’s voice in my head. Gary is such a unique character and one you won’t forget in a hurry, a mystery has yet to be solved and there is a whole bunch of interesting characters that we meet through out the book. Some parts really made me chuckle too. I love how the squirrels became part of the story too. I cannot wait to see what Bob comes up with next.

I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
