Spud – The Madness Continues

July 3, 2007 at 8:31 am (book review)

I finally finished it. The madness does indeed continue in this book but it’s not as good as the first one. It’s certainly amusing and touching but for me it felt a bit like the formula was stretching a bit.
What I found intriguing in the first book – the honesty, subtle humour and sensitivity – seemed a bit faded because it was a bit less sincere.
Still, it was funny and much better than the other drivel coming from South African pens. I would recommend it as a light read.
It’s certainly not a waste of time but Van de Ruit should please stop here. Don’t do a Johnny Depp and not quit while you’re ahead.
Score: 6 out of 10
