A lovely new review on Amazon from the equally lovely Joo for Diary of a Parallel Man by Mahershalalhasbaz

I know what you mean about it not being found on the shelf, Watersones in Deansgate, Manchester did stock it as it is set in that area. There is even a scene featuring their coffee shop! (Fan Girl moment, I got to sit there with the author just where Baz and Kirsty sat!)

Thanks Joo, so glad you enjoyed it. I am sure Baz would forgive you for getting his name wrong! He's that sort of chap! Wink


5.0 out of 5 stars Diary 3 Mar 2013

This book is one of the joys I have had since owning my kindle.
I would imagine that it is one of those that just wouldn't get a place in a bookstore as it is just too "different". Yet it is it's differentness that should be celebrated.

In essence it is a fish out of water story. Maz live in paradise and spoke daily with God, but wanted to find out more and created a passage into our world. He ends up going through this "wormhole" into Manchester and gets stuck in our times.

There is not much kindness in this other place. Maz is such a good person who starts to get ground down with life here.

From my summary it sounds depressing, but this is not a depressing story, not by any means. This is definitely one that I will read again.
