    The Restraint of Beasts is a novel about fencing Post and rail, chainlink, wire stretched to tension, chestnut paling, barbed wire, and electric fencing A novel about fencing the gang of fencers sent into England to erect high tensile fencing to separate the sheep from the sheep deep in the countryside.This has nothing to do with this book but after watching Danish dramas on TV it is hard not to mentally read the author s first name as Mawnus With such pronunciation...

    Here is a deadpan black comedy about three fencing contractors whose preference in life would be drinking pints of beer in a pub for 9 hours a day and working for 4 hours a day instead of the other way round You can tell it s a black comedy because when the occasional death occurs it brightens up the proceedings I did not lol, as they say, and indeed my own pan was d...

    I loved this one Set in Scotland with trips to England , but don t expect any descriptions of the places There are none This book is virtually all action and dialogue, which makes it an interesting study in technique The humor is dry, black, and if you like that kind of humor, the novel is comic If you don t like that kind of humor you ll spend the whole time wondering what in the hell is going on And what exactly happened in the book is the real mystery The book is an extended metaphor I loved this one Set in Scotland with trips to England , but don t expect any descriptions of the places There are none This book is virtually all action and dialogue, which makes it an interesting study in technique The humor is dry, black, and if you like that kind of humor, the novel is comic If you don t like that kind of humor you ll spend the whole time wondering what in the hell is going on And what exactly happened in the book is the real mystery The book is an ...

    Magnus Mills has a style unlike any other author I know His deadpan narratives creep up on you so stealthily you are hypnotised into surrendering your disbelief to whatever bonkers twist and turn the story takes This is his best.
