When the Professor Got Stuck in the Snow

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Everybody at the Women’s Institute in the village of Upper Bottom is eagerly awaiting the arrival of a very special guest speaker: the world famous evolutionary biologist Professor Richard Dawkins. But with a blizzard setting in, their visitor finds himself trapped in the nearby town of Market Horten, with no choice but to take lodgings with the local Anglican vicar. Will the professor be able to abide by his motto - cordiality always - while surrounded by Christians? Will he ever reach Upper Bottom? And can his assistant, Smee, save the day?

Just finished it. I have read all his published material. This is vintage Dan Rhodes. Sore ribs from mirth. I even made the mistake of sneakily reading a key passage at work and had to disguise a very loud snort as a sort of cough. The ending, which we readers are entreated not to give away, is as unexpected and original as Timoleon Vieta.

What I love about Dan Rhodes is his fascination with what goes on in relationships of all types and how they can change. This is blended with a shocking almost sadism towards his main characters, like an abusive film director to a cast of actors. The Bosnian in Timoleon Vieta is a great example. Luckily as far as we know, they are all fictional.

Keep it up Dan, you are insufficiently prolific (for me). I have my own "wife features" and she is clawing at the i-Pad already.

And, no, I haven't even hinted at the ending....
