    One thought on “The Man on Platform Five

    1. Neil on said:

      It's 'Pygmallion' to all intense and purposes. I mentioned this to the author at the time of its publication and guess what? He agreed with me. But it's no 'My Fair Lady'.

    2. Matt on said:

      OK, this was a bizarre book on so many levels. I got this book only bc Robert Llewellyn of Red Dwarf fame wrote it. The entire main cast of Red Dwarf (the individual actors excluding Llewellyn) makes appearances in it, so I got to geek out briefly. On the other hand, there are so many references to British comedy sketches and shows that I was a little lost. (I wasn't reading the book near my computer so I didn't bother to look them up.) Also, the book was not funny in the least and I was hoping [...]

      Quite an unusual chick-lit book I would say, and some serious moments there in the book. The book is not for you if you look for something to laugh out loud.Sometimes I didn't quite understand why Eupheme corrected so many things and words Ian used. I don't think that all of them are inacceptable, but I'm not British and that might be the reason for me not understanding.I have to agree that the story does not sound very realistic. But at least I know now what 'train-spotters' do, although I stil [...]

      Can you call it chick lit when it's written by a man? Well basically this is what this is. I didn't warm to any of the main characters and only finished it because: a) I wanted to find out how it ended and b) it was a bank holiday weekend and I was having a lazy few days.I found the author (Red Dwarf actor and Scrapheap Challenge presenter) had an annoying habit of dropping famous people into the story, no doubt showbiz chums who asked to be included.

    5. Tim on said:

      A curious tale of a geek becoming a "project" for two women to see if they can turn him into a "normal" (whatever that is). It has been a while since I read it, but I remember lots of references to Robert Llewellyn's native Northamtonshire, former shoe making capitol of Britain. describes it "A modern gender-reversed re-telling of Pygmalion", which sounds about right.

      i probably wouldnt have rated this one quite so highly apart from the fact that red dwarf got me through so many lean and mean periods in my life, which is not to say its no good. its just that its your standard issue tv comics' book, though a quite well done one, about the same or maybe slightly better than a ben elton say. can't remember any lols, but I did smile on occasion.

      A competition over a train spotter who works in a supermarket, It actually works very well!
