Immense, you have to read this!
This story is wonderful. A true story, it is about so many things: having the passion to follow your dreams and become the person you're supposed to be - even if that means being homeless and sleeping rough in a London park on the way to becoming an author, as Craig Stone is now, and who will be a name more and more people read, know and love. It's also about society's hierarchy and how harsh it is to be at the bottom, although it gives much food for thought on this, and a conclusion that it's better to be free than be a robotic unemotional suit going through life with closed eyes. It's about the insane and the inane, the rules that pervade our small worlds, and the unconventional. The book writes all this in its own way, and in the beautiful rhythmic style that I loved in the author's sequel to this, Life Knocks. There are also farcical qualities to this story, loads of laugh-out loud moments, and the farce that it builds up to at the end is sheer brilliance (and it actually happened which is insane!). I'm now a big fan of Craig Stone's writing style and stories, simple as that. I look forward to another one, and urge anyone who's not read Life Knocks or this one to read them. These books are in my all-time favourites.

This review is from: The Squirrel that Dreamt of Madness (Kindle Edition)
Having read Life Knocks I had to read The Squirrel that Dreamt of Madness. Like Life Knocks, it's very different to anything I've read before, and I struggled to put it down. One minute I was laughing hysterically, the next close to tears. I love the different stories within the story, all woven together very cleverly. Bizarre and strangely beautiful, more please Mr Stone!
