The main character in those books, as you would of already guessed, is called Derek, nicknamed Sweaty by his friends, but not for the reason you may think. The story is about how Derek came to be called Sweaty and about his time as a youngster (well younger than the series), and is set in the 1980’s, a time before gaming machines, smartphones and home computers. If you wanted to have fun then you had to make it yourself. Each chapter is dedicated to an event that occurred in Derek’s life; most are quite short too.

  • At first, this book seemed like it wasn't making much sense to me for the initial chapter, but after the story gets going it is full of laughs and you just don't want to put it down and go back to reality. Derek is the ultimate bumbling fool of a hero and you can't help but love him for all of his quirks. I liked the plot behind this story. It is highly original and one of those things that makes you wonder how the author managed to come up with it.

    The secondary characters are fun and add a lot of flair to this book, building a story that both makes you laugh, at times makes you stop and think and sometimes makes you shake your head and wonder how anyone could possibly think certain situations could ever be a good idea.

    In some ways, this book had a bit of a Monty Python feel and the constant reasons to laugh carried me through to the end without a hitch. I was happy with the ending, although it was definitely not what one would expect, and look forward to reading the next installment in this series. If you enjoy books where the characters are oddballs and the narrative doesn't quite fit into any one particular genre, this is the way to go. I had a really good time and found it was a nice vacation from reality.

    A review copy of this book was provided to me by the author. My opinions are my own.

  • I was looking forward to reading Just Call Me Derek as a little light relief from my recent reading which has been both heavier in content and longer. It is quite a short book and I rattled through it in about a day.

    Frankly it did take me a little while to engage with Derek. Early on the tale hops around a bit and there is some about Derek's early days and the kids he knocked around with, their resentment when the local patch of land they play on is taken over by the local supermarket, and various other excursions within the text which are not immediately obviously of relevance to the story. My initial impression was this was going to be a tale of juvenile exploits and I was not at all sure I was going to enjoy it.

    However, the meat of the tale concerns a bungled robbery at Bishko's, the aforesaid supermarket, which occurs many years later when Sweaty, me Derek, is all growed up. The perpetrators of this crime are incompetent in the extreme, as, it has to be said, are most people in this story, Derek included. The only sensible ones seem to be Derek's girlfriend, Sally and her mother Muriel and they get carried along by the farcical situations in which they find themselves.

    Once the story gets going it is a lot of fun and an enjoyable read. Certainly a farce in the proud British tradition of Douglas Adams or Tom Sharpe, although the author's writing style is not similar to either of these luminaries. The rather strange ending is clearly a prelude to the next Derek book which will probably be more focused from the word go and hence should also be a very good read.

  • Mac Black’s character Derek is reminiscent of Mr Bean as he lands himself in various predicaments by being in the wrong place in this Tom Sharpe style adult comedy.

    We meet Derek (or the aromatically named Sweaty to his friends) as a young lad who has a cunning plan to stop a local supermarket from building on his local playground. Then, as an adult, he spies the adorable and fragrant Sally and stumbles into her affections. Meanwhile the local constabulary are convinced they have their man when Derek keeps popping up in the wrong location at the right time and they are going to ‘ave ‘im, whatever it takes.

    With a keen eye for the ridiculous in most situations, Mac Black made me chuckle and left me quietly pleased that this time it happened to someone else.

  • This is an odd little box of mixed toffees.
    I can see where the author wants it to go, but personally I think it isn't there yet.
    The author hasn't quite got the satirical edge or gritty repertoire of a Tom Sharpe. I found it a little jumbled and disorganised for my taste. However that is possibly what will appeal to other readers.
    The intent is a flowing portrayal of meandering thoughts taking place in the main characters head, whilst events that are comparable to a Carry On film take place around him and to him.
    Concept is solid it just needs a lot more bite, whether politically, socially or any soapbox at all.
    I received a free copy of this book for my review.

  • A charming, gentle , humorous book with lots of twists and turns. I shall enjoy reading the next book to find out about Derek's further adventures.
