John Connolly is one of my favourite writers and I pretty much devour everything he writes so I had to get myself a copy of this single story when I stumble across it by chance when browsing the Kindle store on Amazon. I really enjoyed this story which is clearly aimed at the middle grade market. I read a lot of YA, children’s and middle-grade fiction so I’m used to the language etc. The Monks of Appalling Dreadfulness is very entertaining, and very wry and funny. The narrator is quite sarcastic about the characters and their sneers and asides were the best thing about the story. This is well worth a read as it’s entertaining.
