My Little Armalite Paperback

1 out of 5 (1 rating)


John Goode is a leftie lecturer who just wants to give his beloved wife and kids a normal life.

You know: north London, good schools, nice neighbours, sash windows...yes, you know.

But who can afford that kind of normal these days? Goode can only daydream of becoming a television academic, or else of a bloody great economic crash that would make his job worth something again.

So when he stumbles on a long-buried assault rifle whilst planting plum-trees for his children, he soon begins to wonder if this might be just the tool to seriously renegociate his family's future...

I picked this up in my local library. I think I was taken in by the cover, really - mustn't judge books by that! I thought it would be interesting, but didn't find it so at all. I struggled badly to read even a few pages. Overly dense, and boring really. I don't usually like first-person in-depth narratives, so I suppose this is not a surprise.
