David Nobbs ´ 9 read Eration Reggie begins his battle against consumerism driving off in a motorized jelly and creating the. Reginald Perrin is going through something of a mid life crisis Sick of the minutiae of his job at Sunshine Desserts he is driven to desperate measures and decides to steal a giant lorry shaped like a jelly fake his own death and start a new life This book – the first in a series of three – tells of Reggie’s adventures as he tries to find a meaning to this lifeThe very first line – “When Reginald Iolanthe Perrin set out for work on the Thursday morning he had no intention of calling his mother in law a hippopotamus” – gave me a clue that this book was going to be funny and somewhat surreal What I didn’t expect was that it would actually be tinged with melancholy too It’s easy to sympathise with Reggie’s frustration at his colleagues and his job although the measures he took to find something to live for were admittedly drastic and ridiculousNobbs balances the melancholy out with lots of laughter though During the first part of the book I was amused on several occasions but not enough to make me really laugh However then came the scene describing the funniest dinner party I have ever read about which actually gave me a stomach ache from laughing so hardThe book takes a bizarre turn towards the end and and while it was supposed to be satirical it didn’t strike uite the right note with me because it was just TOO unbelievable However I did enjoy it overall and certainly intend to read the next two books in the series
