‘Blah, Blah Blacksheep’ is a helter-skelter ride through one week in your average journalist’s life (no, really). Maggie Gibson’s latest offering is fluid and full of Irish humour – the perfect comic beach read.
This is another one of those cheapo British trash novels I pick up for around RM5 at Popular/MPH, I always look for these, and 90% of the time I really enjoy them.
I suggest buying a bunch of these everytime you pass through.
It’s indeed full of Irish wit, twisting and turning, her editor has a nervous breakdown and is replaced with someone nicer..
Following this she is immediately immersed in the dirty, sweaty world of human trafficking, sweat shops, murder and a nasty little extortionist drug dealer with the wonderfully Irish name of Broylan Grillo.
Somehow she ends up friends with Georgina Fitz-Simons who has has just overcome a flourishing cocaine habit, together they go deep into the world of durgs and murder end up in possession of a rather inconvenient corpse, being chased by a Serbian hitman and involved with an ex Glam rocker..
It’s a well written, well paced book. Rather easy to pick up, not hard to put down and can be devoured quickly in a couple of sittings.
If you see it sitting around on the bargain shelf for the price of a drink, do pick it up.
Not much more to say about it, simple book, simple read, simple review.
I give it an enjoyable 6.5/10.
