This story explores the experiences of a random group of Eastern European immigrant workers in the UK It very cleverly captures the changes that have occurred in the UK over the last 5 years since Europe started expanding into the East I also like the way the book is written in the voice of all of the characters involved except for the dog which is just plain stupid I was thoroughly confused by all of the comments that covered the book from the press about how it was hilarious the funniest book etc I guess this was their marketing ploy but it isn t hilarious in fact the situations the characters find themselves in would only be funny if it wasn t so true The fact that the dedication at the front of the book is to the Morecambe bay cockle pickers says it all The ending becomes absolutely ridiculous but given the content of most of the book I was willing to let it go Not a masterpiece by any means but definitely worth reading from a social standpoint Haute Chinese Cuisine from the Kitchen of Wakiya plain stupid I was thoroughly confused by all of the comments that covered the book from the Twisted press about how it was hilarious the funniest book etc I guess this was their marketing The Exploration of the Male Anatomy ploy but it isn t hilarious in fact the situations the characters find themselves in would only be funny if it wasn t so true The fact that the dedication at the front of the book is to the Morecambe bay cockle

Also published as Strawberry FieldsThe bestselling author of A Short History of Tractors in Ukrainian is back with an effervescent comedy The New Yorker The follow up to her hugely popular first novel presents a Canterbury Tales inspired picaresue that. I think Lewycka is incredible she manages to write a novel about illegal immigrants prostitution exploitation battery farming chickens and make it funny without ever diminishing the horror in fact it s because it s fun that we don t turn away or stop reading because it s unbearable I thought the characters were wonderful and varied and the scenes likely to win people over than a mass of outraged journalism or cold statistics And the characters just go on living the humour doesn t allow us to see them as victims even though we can feel sorry for them BrilliantI would recommend this to anyone who enjoyed White Teeth

Assion social outrage and gift for hilarity that she showed in A Short History of Tractors in Ukrainian Marina Lewycka chronicles their bumpy road trip with a tender affection for her downtrodden characters and their search for a taste of the good life. Magnificent Utterly charming relentlessly thought provoking delightfully fashioned The story of a rag tag company of immigrant strawberry pickers is told via a kaleidescope of tale tellers Each character including a mythically perfect dog named Dog has a distinctive voice and a strong world view Each character is flawed but each takes a turn narrating and showing the reader the world as he or she sees it It is a world full of happiness and beauty much loved side by side with horrific images of exploitation suffering and fear The characters all wish for Goethe s the best of all possible worlds and each tries to fashion such a world Despite some heavy subject matter the light hand of the author keeps the story flowing merrily along and there are tremendous moments of comedy
