Much less glamorous finish for this one. Some good laugh out loud moments but not it hung together all that well in parts. He does like a tangent.

Book #4 started most likely will finish in good old blighty. Bit of a change of pace as well.

Ricky Gervais has never been my favourite but lordy above After Life is the best thing he's done. Just watched the last episode and I'm in bits 😭 not a book obviously but the writing is superb.

Next up . . . Its been a long time (no pun intended!) since I read a Goddard. What I do remember is gasping at the end of every chapter. He is the master of a cliffhanger. Looking forward to this.

Well. I loved this. Lures you in so you think you know where its going and then BAM it all changes in the blink of an eye. So much so I thought I'd missed a chapter. Really looking forward to watching the film now.

Tamra The film is gorgeous and doesn‘t pander to the audience by dumbing the story down. At least from what I can remember from the book - I read it so long ago! 13mo
