Ben Elton-Past Mortem
Finally! I've managed to finish this book. I've had this book for a while now since May, only to read 2 chapters since i bought it from Myers, Myers can have pretty good sale on books, 35% RRP. Better than Dymocks, Angus and Robertson and Borders. Well the advantage of Dymocks and Borders is they often have 3 for the price of 2 books, and they're popular titles.
It is my first Ben Elton and I really enjoyed it. It is entertaining, engaging, a clever plot and easy to read. I wouldn't have guessed the killer, and only to find out at the end of the chapter. On a separate note, the language usage is a little coarse. MA and S scenes. I give it a 4.5/5. Ben's other titles are quite appealing, Dead Famous, High Soceity, Blast from the Past and etc.
Will have to read his other titles next year.
Time for Potter and more Potter.
