    Kindle John Niven ✓ No Good Deed PDF ç No Good PDF/EPUB ² ✓ good free, deed pdf, No Good free, No Good Deed eBookThe blurb for No Good Deed drew me in Alan a well to do food critic and columnist comes across Craig an old friend he hasn’t seen in years and is shocked to find him homeless and living on the streets – a long way from the rich rock star he was in the early ‘90s In an act of goodwill Alan takes in Craig and tries to get him back on his feet – except after briefly enjoying Alan’s comfortable life Craig decides to have Alan’s life and schemes to take it from him That sounded good to me – a solid thriller But that doesn’t actually happen Craig doesn’t try to have Alan’s life by taking it away from him he just does his best to sabotage it That bit of false advertising was disappointing to discover as well as a much less compelling story to read overall The book is really about the anger less successful people feel toward their successful friends – yup it’s as

    Kindle John Niven ✓ No Good Deed PDF ç No Good PDF/EPUB ² ✓ good free, deed pdf, No Good free, No Good Deed eBookFor the most part I really liked this A taut fast paced story as Alan a successful restaurant reviewer and cook book author bumps into his high school friend now living rough in LondonAlan decides to help his old friend get back on his feet inviting him into his home helping him reclaim monies owed to him and eventually move forward with his life in a positive way But strange things start happening He ends up in trouble with the Inland Revenue his wife is sent a video of him cheating on her and he loses his job All while Craig the now not homeless guy starts to reclaim his career and fame and fortune Just what's going on?While it doesn't come out until the end that Craig definitely causes these things there are clues and a couple of moments where you're told but not told The big uestion and justification for any thriller then is why? And that's the bit whe

    Kindle John Niven ✓ No Good Deed PDF ç No Good PDF/EPUB ² ✓ good free, deed pdf, No Good free, No Good Deed eBookJohn Niven is one of my favourite comedic writers and No Good Deed was heading for a rock solid four stars until the somewhat half arsed denouement which simply doesn't workWhilst brilliantly observed especially the savage details of upper middle class life No Good Deed is not particularly funny aside from a memorable plumbing re

    Kindle John Niven ✓ No Good Deed PDF ç No Good PDF/EPUB ² ✓ good free, deed pdf, No Good free, No Good Deed eBook What do you do when the homeless man on the street you’ve just given money to thanks you by name and turns out to be one of your ‘closest’ friends one you haven’t seen for over twenty years? Take him for a hot meal and see him on his way? Give him a lot money than you usually would? Or take him in and try to get him back on his feet?Mordantly funny No Good Deed takes a good bite out of the upper middle classes and the upwardly mobile It also digs at the sometimes painful truth that we never really leave our teenage selves behind And what does our adulthood 'success' really mean anyway when so much of life's path is just dumb luck?The characters are mostly awful humans throwing schadenfreude at any opportunity and resenting one another for their respective privilege and position But when satire hits close to the bone it isn't necessarily

    Kindle John Niven ✓ No Good Deed PDF ç No Good PDF/EPUB ² ✓ good free, deed pdf, No Good free, No Good Deed eBookThough the story itself is a good one the writing is certainly not to my tastes There is an incredible amount of ‘product placement’ it must be the most I’ve ever encountered in a novel The characters are all throughly unlikeable But as I write uite a negative review I realise two things the story was strong enough for me not to stop reading just about and deeply is this what Niven intended? to write a novel about a completely unpleasant set of characters

    Kindle John Niven ✓ No Good Deed PDF ç No Good PDF/EPUB ² ✓ good free, deed pdf, No Good free, No Good Deed eBookI know what to expect from John Niven now mind scorchingly angry writing this one a missive at the 'charity' of the rich not to mention the 'heritage' circuit of band reformations It's not all great but most of it hits the mark particularly the nasty and extremely funny pisstakes of weekend lifestyle supplements

    Kindle John Niven ✓ No Good Deed PDF ç No Good PDF/EPUB ² ✓ good free, deed pdf, No Good free, No Good Deed eBookIn No Good Deed John Niven turns his acerbic wit to middle class attitudes to charity poverty and friendshipAlan is a restaurant critic and author and along with his old money wife he's done very well thank you mostly due to the property boom When a homeless man addresses him by name he recognises him as Craig an old school friend and instantly and charitably takes him inBut some friends we love to hate and sometimes our happiness for their success can uickly turn to envyFreuently funny often satirical and occasionally lewd but much less so than some of his previous outings it's a cracking read with some brilliant comic set pieces
