    1. Ian Kirkpatrick

      “Not Funny – Not Clever” is Jo Verity’s fourth published novel and it’s an engaging read. It is essentially a character study where the feelings and emotions of the main protagonists take centre stage, rather than the plot.It is a fairly straightforward story told as a linear narrative and describing the events of a single week in the life of Elizabeth Giles. This tightly focused timeline gives the book a satisfying structure and Verity’s deft writing allows the storyline to gently d [...]

      I was dubious about picking this book up, given the presence of a spelling mistake on the front cover of all places, but I gave it a go anyway. I’m glad I did – it was a great piece of writing and an enjoyable bit of middle-aged escapism. As tends to be the case with this small Welsh publishing company, there is a steady trickle of pro-Wales propaganda, and there is the suspicion that if this book is left on your bedside table overnight it will whisper hypnotic Plaid Cymru slogans to your sl [...]

      What I love about this book:- Vivid description of the real time setting (Cardiff, London and Llangennith)- Heartfelt and well demonstrated characters (especially Jordan and Elizabeth)- The setting is in Wales, which I can totally relate to.- And I like the fact that most themes (family, marriage, friendship, strangers, mystery, reckless love) come under this one, book and as a result, it gave that sturdy storyline. AlthoughI can only hope the author would expand more on Elizabeth - Jordan's rel [...]

      I really liked this book, its got great characters that seem very real. I felt part of the story which doesn't happen to me very often. At times it did feel a bit slow but then its not a thriller or an adventure novel, although there is an element of the unknown throughout it. I'd definitely like to read more by this author.

      'Woman on the edge of an affair' would be a good strap-line for this. The action starts in London, moves to Cardiff and ends up on the Gower beyond Swansea. Although I didn't fully agree with the ending it's still a good read. I'm intrigued to know if the Rain Man TV celebrity in the book is modeled on Derek Brockway at all, and if he's read the book!

      For me, here on the other side of the world, this felt like a little vacation to Wales– and it seems Wales makes people a bit giddy in the romance department. It explored all kinds of relationships and, although occasionally a tad shallow, it was a nice read. The teen, Jordan, was my favorite character. He brought an interesting and strong element to the story.
