Doodling by Jonathan Gould gives us a fantastically funny social satire that never takes itself too seriously.
Neville Lansdowne fell off the world.
Actually he did not so much fall off as let go. The world had been moving so quickly lately and Neville was finding it almost impossible to keep up.
Doodling is an engaging comic fantasy which relates the events that befall Neville after he finds himself abandoned by the world and adrift in the middle of an asteroid field. Douglas Adams meets Lewis Carroll (with just a touch of Gulliver’s Travels) as Neville wanders through his new home, meeting a variety of eccentric characters and experiencing some most unexpected adventures.
I don't think I've ever described something as a "romp" before, but the word definitely applies to the experience of reading Doodling.
I found myself cheering on Neville and his team, and would recommend Doodling to anyone who enjoys a fun read.
I have to say, it was truly delightful!...Please don't deny yourself a little break from this hectic world with a bit of Doodling.
