In my day job I work with people struggling with addiction, childhood trauma and mental health issues. So when it comes to my leisure time, the last thing I feel like is difficult or depressing reading. Nothing will see me put a book down quicker than a blurb promising to 'explore searing emotional pain' or 'plumb the depths of human grief'. 


However, I also hate crappy writing. I hate clunky sentences, ill-formed or stereotyped characters, and illogical or clichéd storylines. This creates a dilemma, as most 'serious writers' lean towards serious subjects. Far too often the choice is between painful story / good writing or entertaining story / rubbish writing. 


Consequently I am always on the look-out for books that provide a rollicking story...
