The Adventures of George: By Blair Gowrie


The Adventures of George is a fascinating and entertaining narrative poem that is written entirely in verse and chronicles the adventures and struggles of George, a chef who works in an exclusive New York restaurant along with his five cooks.”

These thirty-one hilarious connected short stories introduce the reader to a number of kaleidoscopic and peculiar characters, which resemble national leaders, terrorists and celebrities who are described in a humorous and satirical way.  I would highly recommend this book to people who are interested in politics and international affairs, knowledge of recent history and have a great sense of humour.

Each story is superbly crafted, original and well-written and a real credit to the author who clearly knows how to inject the right amount of satire to make this a fun and highly entertaining read.

My Ranking: 5 Stars
