Saul Wordsworth

8 Reviews

Rated 0

Fiction, Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945), Humour

Alan Stoob, Britain's Premier Nazi Hunter, has been acclaimed as a creation of comic genius. Previously rumours of his adventures have appeared on Twitter, now he steps centre stage in this hilarious novel.

Alan Stoob, hero of this hilarious novel has been described as a new member of the great pantheon of British comic characters - genus awkward old bastard - that already includes Mr Micawber, Mr Pooter and Captain Mainwairing.

Originally a Twitter sensation, whose fans include India Knight and Dara O'Brien, he now walks the pages of this book finding Nazi conspirators in the most mundane surroundings.

Into a very ordinary, domestic setting comes world famous Nazi hunter Simon Wiesenthal, who invites Alan to take on responsibilities for hunting Nazis in hiding in the county of Bedfordshire.

Alan agrees and finds that wherever he looks he sees evidence of Nazi conspiracy and he begins to follow a trail of evidence that leads him to members of the UK Cabinet and even the President of the United States.

Praise for Alan Stoob: Nazi Hunter: A comic novel

  • Alan Stoob is a creation of comic genius. - Jon Ronson

  • Alan Stoob is the Nazi-Hunter de nos jours. If you haven't seen any Nazis on the streets of Dunstable latterly it is entirely down to his tireless efforts. - Charlie Higson

  • Alan Stoob is the funniest and most effective Bedfordshire-based Nazi Hunter I've come across. - Stephen Mangan

  • Alan Stoob is to Nazis what Inspector Clouseau is to jewel thieves. He's a marvellous comic creation, and deserves his own series of movies.

  • Alan Stoob and its hero are laugh-out-loud funny... the human story at the heart of the diaries charting Alan's failing marriage and his relationship with his depressed fortysomething son is tragically comic amid the increasingly surreal plot. - The Times

  • There are joyous moments of surrealism and some of the silliest names for baddies ever invented. This book contains the word 'owly' which brought happiness. Strong female characters admonish yet ultimately encourage Stoob. In a favourite scene Edame comes to his rescue toting a pistol, andmy laughing startled the dog several times. A comic hero of advanced years, Wordsworth's creation is a rarity - a sort of elderly Bridget Jones, with bunions. - Standard Issue Magazine

  • Alan Stoob is to Nazis what Inspector Clouseau is to jewel thieves. He's a marvellous comic creation, and deserves his own series of movies.

  • A page-turner of the highest order.
