Comment: The spine or cover may be slightly worn but the book is otherwise in good condition and will provide thought provoking read! Aged book. Tanned pages and age spots, however, this will not interfere with reading. Grubby book may have mild dirt or some staining, mostly on the edges of pages.

Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

Boris Starling's writing career began at the age of eight, when his English teacher spotted that his short story was (a) unusually good for a child his age (b) copied verbatim from Tintin's 'Prisoners Of The Sun.' (That was also the first time he learnt the word 'verbatim', not to mention the term 'copyright violation'.)

All his work since then has been strictly his own. He has written eight novels, including Sunday Times and New York Times bestsellers. Five appear under his own name (Messiah, Storm, Vodka, Visibility and, in a daring breakout from one-word titles, The Stay-Behind Cave) and three as Daniel Blake (Soul Murder (UK)/Thou Shalt Kill (US), City Of Sins (UK)/City Of The Dead (US) and White Death). Every one of these books features someone dying horribly somewhere along the way. Sometimes they even deserve it.

Boris also created the 'Messiah' franchise which ran for seven years on BBC1, and has written screenplays for productions in the UK and US.

He has inherited his grandfather's male pattern baldness, but sadly not his prodigious height. He is a keen sportsman, though he has now reached the age where enthusiasm and experience are beginning to trump sheer skill. He lives in Dorset, England, with his wife, children, greyhounds, and however many chickens manage to keep clear of marauding foxes.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very thin & small but entertaining
By Lotta R�ssler on 19 December 2019
I knew from reading previous reviews that the book was only a B4 format size, so more a little hand book than the size of the original Haynes Manual series, but I wasn't aware it would be so thin as well! Bit disappointed to be honest, there's only 34 pages so not a very long read. However, it's written in a very funny way and it is entertaining throughout.

I was going to give it as a Christmas present but now had to downgrade it to a stocking filler. The size and thickness could definitely be improved! Also it would've been better if it was written from a perspective tailored to the male reader throughout, as it is a car manual series originally - I thought it was aimed at the dad-to-be, but some parts are written from a female / mother-to-be perspective...
