The key of this book for me was Britt’s mind. I couldn’t stop reading about her childhood’s problems, about her wishes and her pains. She’s an amazing character and the Author introduces the reader inside her mind in a great way. I hardly felt a character so close…
The love story is truly heart-breaking. I had so mixed feelings. I waited and felt happy and cried and was astonished.
Alan Hardy's historical background is outstanding. I like historical novels and I was very impressed by how his settings have all elements to make them real and interesting.
This was a great read for me and I’ll definitively read more books by this author.
The main story is focused on Britt and Wiggles, a nurse and an ace pilot, who are determined to save England, find love, and escape insanity (at least in Britt’s case). Britt and Wiggles are not just protagonists, they are heroes of this novel, larger-than-life and admirable in many ways, but with weaknesses that make them real and appealing. As they struggle to accomplish their goals, they learn a lot about themselves and the world around them. That aspect of the novel feels like a unique coming-of-age story. A wonderful book written with a fantastic sense of humor. Highly recommended!
As their characters develop, you get the impression that perhaps they have been so completely consumed by each other that they have not seen the rest of the world spinning by. In a sense, they have been in love with each other, all their lives. They are so innocent they have no knowledge of human sexuality so when they are sexually attracted to each other, they don’t actually understand what they are feeling and they have no idea how to act on those impulses.
This is wonderful and thought provoking character development. Creation of a romance between a man-boy and a schizophrenic woman-girl is something I’ve never seen done before but amazingly, author Alan Hardy pulls it all together and cleverly weaves the relationship between Wriggles and Britt into this non-stop action adventure.
This was the third book I’ve read by Alan Hardy and it is proof that Hardy is a versatile and multi-dimensional author who can change styles without missing a beat. Britt is a superbly written in wonderfully colorful language. As I read through it, I couldn’t help visualizing it as a “classic” movie or mini-series but alas, Hollywood rarely recognizes greatness. Read this five-star novel to see and feel a future classic.

I've read three of Alan Hardy's books now and I have to say each one of them is vividly imprinted in my memory and I don't imagine they will ever fade. This author has a brilliant way of pulling together outrageous ideas and madly blending genres to create something truly unique, thought-provoking and memorable. 'Britt' is a prime example of this with it's impressive combination of action, thriller, mystery, romance, humour and historical fiction. The imagery contained in this novel is strong and used to great effect, often for comedy. The story is entertaining and moves along at a fast pace with some well timed shocks and thrills packed in.
The characters were deeply flawed and I found them tremendously entertaining from start to finish. Their childlike innocence was unexpected and the contrast between this naivety and the easy brutality of the killings added well to the shock factor. Britt was an unpredictable character and this made for some very tense moments where I honestly didn't know what she might do as it seemed like she could be capable of anything.
Overall this is a massively entertaining novel containing a rather unusual romance story, full of laughs, shocks and edge-of-seat moments. 'Britt' is yet another brilliant novel from Alan Hardy. If you have not yet tried one of his books this would be an excellent one to begin with. A word of warning though, they are insanely addictive!
It's funny to me to see a British author telling about stories set in France, but Mr Hardy masters it brilliantly.
The story is about a couple, Britt and Wriggles, two childhood "friends" bonded forever by a sort of sentimental feeling. Britt suffers from a form of schizophrenia that makes things even more twisted along the plot flows.
Britt and Wriggles are involved into a complicated, sometimes funny attempt of stopping a German spy acting in their territory. Among suspense scenes and a bit of mystery, Britt and Wriggles will start a kind of love story that will merge with their childhood heritage.
It's fascinating to see how adults could turn into kids again while overwhelmed by memories and aspects/elements belonging to their own past and love.
I cannot tell you if Britt is more a crime/spy novel or a romance suspense story, but it doesn't matter at the very end. Britt is an enjoyable novel which I highly recommend to any avid readers looking for a entertaining story with a hint of comedy inside and a sparkle of romance. The ability of Mr Hardy as a storyteller makes the rest.
In a total turnaround, England faces defeat in 1918. Germany looks set to triumph and only one man and one woman can save England.
Wriggles never flies undone and is so Rik Mayall/Blackadder from Blackadder Goes Forth without the sexual know-how. He is our ace pilot and spy hunter and is all there is to stop the Hun from ruining old Blighty. To help we have his childhood sweetheart Nurse Britt a somewhat mentally unbalanced individual if there ever was. Can these two quirky people take on fiendish spies with more cleverness than a clever thingy? Can they save England? Can Britt ever find out what wriggles between Wriggles' legs? Read and find out.
I haven't had this much fun since the last Alan Hardy novel Very highly recommended.
Set in France with Wiggles shooting down anything that resembles the enemy, even during the throws of passion with the French symbol of freedom,(poor woman never seems to catch a break!) this wonderful first world war spy caper had me turning the pages ever faster...the naivety of the Hero and Heroine of the plot is quite sweetly disturbing and gets wonderfully gory and eyewateringly painful towards the end. Britt's epic attack on Dr. Goole's pet snake had me guffawing into my tea!
With codes to break and spies abounding in every corner of France, Britt and Wiggles set forth to save Britain and boy, do they do it well.
Recommend for an afternoon of of smiles.
The two get involved with the often amusing escapade of stopping some kind of German plan, trying not to give to much away here but it's good none the less. Their bond grows also and they get into a strange relationship with flashback of sorts to their childhood.
A good mix of spy and romance story with Alan's usual twists and turns thrown in loved this very much since my fiancee was away this weekend i read it all in one day/night, very enjoyable.
