Book Review: The Super Spud Trilogy

Title: The super spud trilogy
Author: Michael Diack
Rating: 4/5
Summary: Genetic engineering has accomplished many things, one of which has been to create the Super Spud! The humble potato elevated to new heights, creating the most flavoursome crisps ever known to humankind! But that's not all - A magical transformation occurs to all Super Spud crisps not eaten before their use-by date. They take on a life of their own. And so long as they remain undetected by humans, they enjoy life in their own Super Spud cities, take part in major Super Spud sporting events and even start the odd Super Spud war or two. Join Colin, Cougar, Hannibal Vector, Generals Rock, Jock and Strap and all the others in their rollicking adventures. You'll never look at a packet of crisps in the same way again! Fun, quirky and totally original.

Review: I really cannot remember the last time that I read a book that was so quirky and silly, there wasn't a point in this book where I wasn't smiling- even during the serious parts.

Even if you aren't looking for something that is silly and a tad bit childish, I can say that people of all ages will enjoy this book- whether you are 6-95.

One of the reasons for that is because the world that this story is set up in so well made and thought out, it's unbelievable! The writing is also spectacular, I found myself hanging onto every word...

The characters personalities were also very well built up, I loved some of the things that the characters would say and how perfectly it fit with their personalities!

The idea behind the book didn't fully grab me at first, and I have to admit that I probably wouldn't have picked up this book if it wasn't for getting an email from Stormi asking me to review it for the book tour, but I am so glad that I did read it! I think I'll keep going back to read it again and again.

All in all, I would definitely recommend reading this book as soon as you can! You won't regret it...
