A super fun political murder adventure. The first half is set in a murder house and it trots along pretty well but it really comes alive when the story opens up in the second half.

Would you listen to Confessions of a Gentleman Arachnid again? Why?

I really would... It was really funny and I think I missed a load of the references the first time round.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Probably Milligan. He was entertainingly dumb but had a darkness to him that made him really compelling.

What does Thom Tuck bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Thom is clearly fantastic. He gets the atmosphere perfectly.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Both of those actually! There are plenty of jokes but it does get quite emotionally tough at times.

Any additional comments?

It's not a perfect book by any means but it's really good fun and I'd happily recommend it.
