Review by:
David Butcher

It’s showdown time. Jez’s crush on Dobby was bound to bring him to blows with Mark. And Mark has turned into a time-bomb of control-freakery, fixated on getting Dobby to live with him, whatever the cost. It comes to a rampantly silly climax involving a “kangaroo court of love” and the world’s most joyless picnic.

First, though, Mark ventures into about the worst place he could go –
a game of five-a-side football. (“That was too hard! Someone’s going to get hurt if you kick it that hard!”) And Jez moves in to Super Hans’s flat, “the black hole of Cal-nutter”, which, in the space of a few lines, is established as one of the worst places to live imaginable. “We do peg and re-use the tea bags” is the least of it.
