Well, how I could pick up a bright pink and yellow book off the shelf, see it's by Julian Clary and NOT expect it to be about a rent boy I have no idea darlings. None whatsoever. It's not as bad as it could be, considering the subject but still rather predictable.
I always find it irritating when you get lead characters that are so utterly perfect in every single way. But Marry Poppins, Johnny D ain't exactly. Gorgeous, talented (both inside and outside the covers apparently), loved by all... and yet he's completely taken by a scheme by his nearest and dearest.
Oh please, if you're going to make your characters so damn wonderful, it's hardly going to address the balance by showing their comedown. I guess that's the UK for you. We're never happier watching someone succeed than we are watching their demise back into nothingness. To add to the mix there's a whacked out free loving mother and some second line incest thrown into the mixture. It's a bit Midsomer Murders without the funny detective fella.
