A Midsummer Night’s Gene

I’ve finished A Midsummer Night’s Gene by Andrew Harman. It wasn’t too bad. The blurb on the cover hints at him being on a par with Terry Pratchett. I don’t think so.
The book whilst having an interesting world (set ‘next year’), and a apparently convoluted plot, really didn’t get going until fully half way through. And then only picked up pace in the last quarter.
It had it’s funny moments, but there was far too much repetition of clever phrases. They worked the first time, but not the second, and in some cases third time.
All in all, I will only recommend that you borrow this from the library.
