Farce -a light dramatic work in which highly improbable plot situations and exaggerated characters are often used for humorous effect. A comedy characterized by broad satire and improbable situations.
I settled down to start reading Marlowe and the Spacewoman, thinking I was in for some serious science fiction reading. The first few pages were a little strange - talking dog and acid rain - but I survived. Then our hero gets killed by a bar of soap who bubbles "Nothing personal" as it removed the needle from Marlowe. "Just business."
It is then I begin to think this book is maybe a little too strange for me. By end of the next ten pages, light has dawned and I have a slumped forehead caused by the slap of the heal of my hand as I said over and over, "So this is that kind of book." Had I taken the time to truly read the "Praise for the modest Ian M Dudley's Work" section in the front of my Kindle copy, I might have sussed the situation from the very beginning. I won't spoil the fun for you but do take a minute and read it when you get your copy.
