Attack of the unsinkable rubber ducks - Christopher Brookmyre

I think that I can safely say that Christopher Brookmyre is my favourite author.  i think there is only one of his books that I haven’t read.  And there isn’t a single one that I haven’t enjoyed.

One of the reasons I love them so much is that when I’m reading them, I really SEE the story.  Every single one runs like a film in my head – I buy into the story, scenes and characters so much.

This would definitely be less ‘explosive’ than the rest of his books really but  I would say this is definitely one of his best.

The ‘Unsinkable Rubber Ducks’ are those people who are determined to carry on believing in something even after they are shown conclusive evidence to the contrary – in this case it’s the world of mystics, mediums and spiritual ‘entertainers’.   And he blows many of their cons right out of the water.

Brookmyre’s usual terrorists and conspiracy theories are toned down, although death still prevails throughout the story. The climax is fantastic – even though this is the second time I’ve read the book, I couldn’t put it down once I could see the end was within reach because it is just so thrillingly exciting!

Love it!
