A spellbinding, globe-trotting novel by the bestselling author of the Ibis trilogy. Enter a land of wizards, warriors, mythical creatures and powerful magic in an exciting fantasy adventure from the author of How To Train Your Dragon. Sometimes you have to risk everything to find your something All Andrew wants is to be normal. The most remarkable thing about Random Acts is its narrative voice.
The shift seemed too fast for me. Another problem I often have with diary based novels is the level of detail recalled about dialogue and events. Even if they could remember it fully, I think only a general sense of the dialogue is what would be recorded, with maybe one or two choice quotes.

But did I enjoy it? Well, the story is very slow. Very little happens. Rare is the novel where I become so caught up in altered speech, that I cease to notice.

It was only on finishing the book that I appreciated how good it is. The novel has a left-wing bias; the have-nots are portrayed an underclass, left to battle amongst themselves whilst the rich live untouched. The book may be twenty years old but its still massively relevant, perhaps now more so than ever. Womack offers a strong position on the nature vs nurture debate. All those who think those in poverty are born lazy, idle and criminal would do well to read this book.
Even now, days after having read it, little flashes of it return. It also chimes scarily with the current political climate.
