Inflatable Hugh by Terry Ravenscroft

“Apparently your brother maintained the belief that having sex with an inflatable rubber woman was almost as beneficial in creating a feeling of well-being as the real thing. This being the case he viewed his operation more like a public service than a moneymaking operation. Which isn’t to say he didn’t make substantial profits from the sales …”
Pugh’s heart beat faster. Substantial profits. What a wonderful coming together of words.
From the wily to the ingenuous, from the morally indignant Vigilantes Against Sex Toys to the crafty machinations of politicians, all are depicted with subtle insight into character in this hilarious take on politics and the sex toy industry.

With the above opening paragraph of Inflatable Hugh I was hooked. Terry Ravenscroft’s tongue in cheek writing had me laughing out loud from beginning to end. From the wily to the ingenuous, from the morally indignant Vigilantes Against Sex Toys to the crafty machinations of politicians, all are depicted with subtle insight into character. In recommending this as a `great’ read I could only paraphrase the author’s own writing: What a delightful coming together of words!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another cracker from Terry, 7 May 2012

I discovered Terry Ravenscroft’s brilliant humour when I downloaded his ‘Stairlift to Heaven. Since then I’ve been busily devouring as many of his wonderful stories as possible. As a matter of fact I now have them all on my Kindle, just waiting to be laughed out loud to.

Terry was a script writer for the great and glorious from the classic TV comedy shows of a bygone era. But I really wished he hadn’t been. Not because I think he wasn’t any good, (a look at his Les Dawson’s Cissie and Ada book proves just how good he was) but if he hadn’t chosen script writing for a career we wouldn’t have had to wait until he retired to read his wonderful stories.

Keep writing, Terry, and I’ll keep downloading and if you’ve any sense, oh reader of this review, you’ll do just the same.

I think I may have an internal injury after reading this,due to uncontrollable laughter.I have not enjoyed anything so much since the author’s other books. The new addition on 1st October is on my wish list. A wonderful sense of humour to lift the gloom.
