This a tongue-in-cheek fantasy tale about a young man who, through no fault of his own, is transported to a medieval world. Scared witless, all he wants is to be sent home. Considered harmless, he is ignored. Deciding to take things into his own hands, he hits on the idea of making a revolution to gain his ends. Recruiting some unlikely helpers, he forms a plan and puts it into action. Of course, things go wrong from the start, but they win through in the end.

This is a humorous fantasy story that takes place in a medieval village. The main character from modern day England is transported via a wizard to the medieval dimension for the purpose of collecting information. The wizard ends up keeping the man, named JoJo, in the dimension as a source of amusement. The book follows JoJo’s desperate attempt to cause an uproar in the realm thus forcing the wizard to send him home reluctantly. There are some funny scenes. But the humor is adult; this is not a book for children. There is a lot of slang used from the perspective of English society, but I didn’t find it difficult to follow. I did run into a number of typos and spelling errors, but despite that the book was easy to read and understand. The book was written in a sort of monologue of the main character. Everything was described by the main character’s perspective with some dialogue peppered into the manuscript as well to add interest. I do wish there had been more dialogue as well as a touch more character development and detail added to parts of the story to make the pace a bit faster. All in all, if you enjoy fantasy and humor, you would find this story entertaining. It did provide some much enjoyed laughter! -Diamante Lavendar, author of Breaking The Silence
