After it was all over everyone agreed they wouldn't have imagined George Ainslie to be a hero. Heroes are majestic, sublime, with muscles. They look like Christopher Reeve. George is so bland his own mother wouldn't have picked him out of a police line-up. On top of that he's a bit of a bumbler. He falls into events. Things happen to him through no fault of his own. So, how did he get to be a hero? Maybe its because George has a friend. In High Places. An angel. Not the sort who sits on a cloud playing a harp but a more down-to-earth one working hard to keep George out of trouble - and not always succeeding.
An author's ability to make the reader laugh out loud is a great skill and one that this author has captured well. Our poor hapless George with his even more that slightly wonky angel is a delight.
