“I almost couldn’t resist finishing it, it was like a car crash and the Jeremy Kyle show all combined; morbidly fascinating and extremely disgusting” ~ Under the Covers
Wow. I think I need a moments silence; a moment to recover from what I have just read and maybe a few more moments in self-congratulations that I managed to finish it. Of course, I almost couldn’t resist finishing it, it was like a car crash and the Jeremy Kyle show all combined; morbidly fascinating and extremely disgusting. I know I am running against the tide of popular opinion by not immediately screeching this book’s praises, but then again popular opinion quite often leaves me scratching my head wondering if I have read the same book as everyone else.
Now, I don’t often give books less than a 2 star rating but Fire Down Below certainly inspired it. Normally, humourous books are my weakness, no matter how bad or non-existent a story line is, how shallow the characters are, if a book manages to make me crack a smile then I am happy. This did not happen. I understand that Debra Anastasia was doing this entirely tongue in cheek and it wasn’t meant to be taken seriously; however, it was like I had gone to the novelty section in the book shop and selected the toilet humour shelf and read my way through it. And like if I had done that, it was repetitive, tacky, boring and made me feel a little sick.
I am trying desperately to find something positive to say about this book, but honestly I got nothing. Maybe it’s me; maybe I am becoming miserable and heroines shitting themselves and fart jokes no longer appeals to me like they did when I was a teenager. I find I don’t mind. Either way, this book definitely wasn’t for me, I didn’t enjoy it, and no matter how morbidly fascinating the next book may be I will not be reading it.
