Pundragon launches today, and the early reviewers have been very kind. Mike Reeves-McMillan, writing on Goodreads, says:
“The other thing about a comedy for me is that, in order to work, it needs (like Dorothy’s companions) a brain and a heart and a bit of courage. This book has all three.”
Rachel G., a NetGalley reviewer, wrote: “This is a thoroughly enjoyable romp through a strange world with a bizarre but very likeable cast of characters. Some of the puns are eye-wateringly terrible, but they are supposed to be and that is all part of their charm. I’d recommend this book to anyone who enjoys fantasy novels with a comic twist.”
One of my favourite review lines from Marvin on Goodreads was this: “If Chandra Clarke happens to be as nuts as the characters in her book, one might start feeling sorry for the people surrounding her …” My family has no comment at this time.
Marvin also says: “Let’s imagine that Terry Pratchett, Douglas Adams and the Monty Python guys would have met in a pub, and after a considerable amount of beers, decided to write a modern version of ‘Alice in Wonderland’. The result could have been ‘Pundragon’.” I can’t think of better authorial company to be keeping, as they’re all influences.
Pundragon is available in both ebook and paperback format on all Amazon sites. If you’re in need of a good laugh, this might be the book for you.
