"Extremely England" by James N. Roses is clever, witty, and very funny at times. I love the author's sarcastic look at the British society and all the fun twists he put in the plot. It's a light-hearted tale of absurdism, hypocrisy, and convoluted politics.
If you have ever lived in a country that held any kind of elections - and that's a lot of countries! -- you will enjoy this book. One of my favorite lines in the book is a description of the moment when one of the characters "saw Bobby's hope of promotion disappear in a big cloud of Arabic smoke."
I really enjoyed all the clever and funny turns of phrase in this book. Very entertaining.

"Extremely England" by James N. Roses is a funny satire. It is witty at times, sarcastic and farcial at others, and revolves around a group of characters involved in politics, journalism and the police force.
It is a clever story with some amusing twists, all surrounding an upcoming election in the UK. With sharp observational skills Roses depicts modern live in England with some of its absurdities and hypocrisies. If you live in the UK as I do you are bound to find this as amusing as I did.

I laughed out loud so many times when reading this book. The characters are great caricatures of the politicians, police and journalists that we've growm to live and hate in equal measure in the UK. There is a plot to this story, it is a mystery really, but it isn't to be taken too seriously. It's really good fun and I recommend it.
