    Puckoon ePUB º Paperback puckoon free, Puckoon PDFEPUBWhat did I just read Pure bonkers from Milligan his first book I've never read any of his books and felt it was time to rectify that You don't get a straightforward read with Milligan Plenty of laughs definitely some clever stylings and lines you can tell he's a stagescreen comedian with some one liners thrown in but you have to be on your toesThe scene switches from scene to scene instantly The main character talks to the 'voice' of the author who talks back The plot overall heads towards the direction of a story set in Ireland involving a new border near the village of Puckoon with some villagers buried on the wrong side But there's also an escaped panther a night shift Chinese policeman TNT a clock stuck at 432 and a whole village full of crazy stuffed inAs I said bonkers But enjoyable and at less than 160 pages a uick read
