As a previous reviewer has observed, Patrick Barrett writes like Tom Sharpe “without the bad
language”. Personally, I’d be happy to write like Tom Sharpe using any kind of language, and I
fully endorse that reviewer’s opinion. This is a refreshingly clean farce, combining all those
essential ingredients: a plot told at breakneck speed, a myriad of highly improbable situations, a
motley cast of engaging characters, and a huge sigh of relief when the curtain comes down.
Thoroughly recommended. This is the most pleasurable read I’ve had in ages. And just look at all
those 4- and 5-star reviews!

5-star Review for Shakespeare's Cuthbert.
I am an ex-miner who has written the CUTHBERT SERIES of comedy books. I am hoping to provide my readers with escapism from the stresses and strains of everyday life and involve them in a timeless fictional Valley with larger than life characters which are developed throughout the books. Each book has its own theme and they can be read as part of the series or as stand-alone books.
