Oli Jacobs – Strange Days in High Wycombe

 

Oli Jacobs is a local author and this is a local novel, so if you’ve ever been to High Wycombe then you’re going to enjoy this even more than you will if you’re a newcomer to the area. Either way, you’re in good hands – you’ll get to meet Guy and Kriste, the latter of which will be your guide throughout this strange land of alcoholic beverages.

Now, there were some errors here, but in many ways, that’s to be expected from an indie author – my main issues were with misused apostrophes, although there was the odd typo here and there and I also thought that the layout looked a little strange because there were spaces between each paragraph.

Usually, that’s enough for me to stop reading something, or to give it a bad review; in this case, though, I was able to get over that, because of how gripping the story line was. The author also uses an interesting, grandiose style here – it’s over the top, but it’s deliberately over the top, because that reflects Guy, the novel’s unreliable narrator. In many ways, he’s like Holden Caulfield, and while it takes a while to get used to him, it’s worth it in the end.

Overall then, a good read and a lot of fun, and while it would benefit from a little polishing and editing, it’s still a pretty good effort on its own. Cheers!
