Book reviews for The Drought by Steven Scaffardi...

Amazon Reader Review #20 (Paperback Edition): Funniest book I've read in a long while!
This book is an absolute triumph - especially considering it is Scaffardi's debut work. The characters are well thought out and endearing, the situations they manage to get themselves into (especially the protagonist Daniel) are hilarious, and the overall result is an incredibly readable, feel good, highly amusing adventure which will have you smiling for days. Cannot recommend highly enough. Buy it and have a really good laugh. 5/5 stars

Amazon Reader Review #21 (Paperback Edition): Class
A great read,very funny and well written. Mr Scafardi has a lot of talent. The book has you from the first pages. 5/5 stars

Amazon Reader Review #22 (Paperback Edition): A very funny and endearing read
I know this book is supposed to be "lad lit", but it really has a wonderfully broad appeal - anyone reading this has met characters like the ones the author has managed to create, and this brings each and every (often hysterical) situation to life. Scaffardi has managed to create a highly sympathetic protaganist who, despite his flaws, you will be rooting for throughout, and cringing with when it all goes wrong (which it often does!) There are very few books that I've read recently that have had me laughing out loud, frequently in public places to the amusement of those around me! For a debut novel, this is a massively accomplished book, and I for one can't wait for the next one. 5/5 stars
