    Well this was a refreshing read I really enjoyed the author s humour, and imagine the protagonist Dr Simon Legris as a sort of Blackadder figure, getting himself into and out of scrapes, narrowly escaping death and inadvertently causing a train of events that concludes with the apparently true monkey hanging in Hartlepool The majority of the book is written from his perspective, so I was at first disappointed when other narrative voices were introduced, because I liked him But they served a Well this was a refreshing read I really enjoyed the author s humour, and imagine the protagonist Dr Simon Legris as a sort of Blackadder figure, getting himself into and out of scrapes, narrowly escaping death and inadvertently causing a train of events that concludes with the apparently true monkey hanging in Hartlepool The majority of the book is written from his perspective, so I was at first disappointed when other narrative voices were introduced, because I liked him But they served a purpose, and I enjoyed their perspectives too.The author knows his stuff, having studied History and being a lawyer, so the backdrop of the French revolution and the courtroom elements rang true I liked that amidst the witty, tongue in cheek humour, there were moments of real poignancy and I found myself reflecting on the nature of humanity and man s foolishness My goodness people can be stupid.I m also lucky enough to have a personalised, signed copy in which Mr Longley hopes I enjoy his book I did immensely, and I look forward to the next

    The Hartlepool Monkey is a vastly entertaining read filled with a lot of wit Longley successfully overcomes many potential pitfalls largely satirical characters, 18th Century diction, striking the right tone, etc to weave an entertaining story told through three diverse perspectives a doctor, an upscale prostitute and a one guinea brief regarding a possible monkey spy Really what I enjoyed most was the humour which was caustic and wry Definitely hang in there for the rousing court The Hartlepool Monkey is a vastly entertaining read filled with a lot of wit Longley successfully overcomes many potential pitfalls largely satirical characters, 18th Century diction, striking the right tone, etc to weave an entertaining story told through three diverse perspectives a doctor, an upscale prostitute and a one guinea brief regarding a possible monkey spy Really what I enjoyed most was the humour which was caustic and wry Definitely hang in there for the rousing courtroom climax which will have you laughing aloud Longley, a real life lawyer, really lets his sly sense of humour shine here

    I only picked the book up because of the tale and wasnt expecting much To my suprise this was a wonderful read Clever and intelligent it is told in the style you would expect of that time period It really makes you think and when each of the sections ends you miss the person who was telling you story only to find you enjoy the next persons account the same I felt for all the four main characters including the monkey An excellent read and at the end the way all the characters are interwov I only picked the book up because of the tale and wasnt expecting much To my suprise this was a wonderful read Clever and intelligent it is told in the style you would expect of that time period It really makes you think and when each of the sections ends you miss the person who was telling you story only to find you enjoy the next persons account the same I felt for all the four main characters including the monkey An excellent read and at the end the way all the characters are interwoven is a joy to behold

    I really don t know what to make of this as it was just rather strange It s a fictionalised rendition of an actual event in history Yes, the Hartlepudlians really did hang a monkey It s something that just beggars belief really but I wasn t too sure about the actual novel There were some witty lines but I also found historical inaccuracies and I found it hard to stomach the presentation of Admiral Nelson as a perverted rapist It may be true so I m going to have to find a biography of him B I really don t know what to make of this as it was just rather strange It s a fictionalised rendition of an actual event in history Yes, the Hartlepudlians really did hang a monkey It s something that just beggars belief really but I wasn t too sure about the actual novel There were some witty lines but I also found historical inaccuracies and I found it hard to stomach the presentation of Admiral Nelson as a perverted rapist It may be true so I m going to have to find a biography of him Because of the strangeness of the novel, I don t feel I can awardthan 2 stars
