My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Zany and original, that is the best way to describe this book. I have read three books by Dermot Davis and if I had to choose a a favourite, this would be it. Most of my favourite authors earn a place on my bookshelf if they have enlightened me or entertained me. Rarely do I meet one who can do both.
Brain: The Man Who Wrote the Book That Changed the World is the latest offering from Irish writer Dermot Davis, and speaking subjectively, this one does not disappoint. As with Zen & Sex he has his quirky main character but instead of focusing on angle of society, there is more than situation readers will be able to connect with.
Brain is loaded with hilarious, snarky descriptions that are so characteristic of Davis’ writing, and if someone dares you to read his novels without laughing out loud, don't take them up on such a bet. First time readers who want to discover Davis' work will find this to be a good read, once you get through the initial first few pages of "searching"which was a bit slow for me, everything else about this book is a page turner. Highly recommended.
