“The Village Idiots Cruise Club: Hilarious Fun at Sea” by Charlie Bray is the second in the author’s witty series on the Village Idiots Club, a bunch of oddballs and obscure characters, or idiots.
On this occasion the club has taken to the sea for a cruise, ‘free’ in exchange for their (free) labour on ship, but with a get out clause in case they proove unworthy of the free ride.
Incompetence, laziness and scheming won’t pay off for our team of ‘volunteers’ as evil senior citizens and other taxing cruise passengers make the life of our cast difficult.
The book is full of great scenarios and very funny ideas about the adventures and misadventures that can occur on a cruise ship. The English-over-sixty Club, and a Antiques Road Show on sea are amongst those original ideas that make the book great fun to read.
The humour can be subtle or more sarcastically dark and cleverly takes apart the dynamics of many such cruises and the clientele. Throw in a mystery to be solved, an odd scientist and his robot, Big Dick, the leader of the Village Idiots and you have yourself a firework of laughs and a conveyer belt of gags.
Treat yourself to a fun read!
