Song of the Sea God
John Love drifts in on the grey North Sea tide to grace a remote island off the English coast. The stranger effects an immediate messianic glow upon the bladder-wracked community of odds and sods, making disciples of the most unlikely characters.

Just finished song of the sea god .... Cracking read ... a seamless drop back and forth in styles
with rye and respectful nods to influence ....try and imagine the diversity of obscure American folk groups, Anthony Shaffer or the manic street preachers!!
Modern twists of comedy drenched in a beautifully classic style of presentation, a bit of an Irvine Welch meets George Eliot.
Most chapters are entertaining and even laugh out loud, but then slide swiftly into the unanticipated and macabre.
A steady read for the
book shy like me, but there’s plenty in there for the well read too.
A subtle approach to the convoluted plot idea, much more like a Shakespearian aside than a chubby girl on Pontins factor trying to mimic Beyonce.
This would make a great movie incidentally in this modern era of the dark comic twist.
