Elegant yet not long-winded with rich, flawed characters that you would hate if they all weren’t so damn human. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Piccadilly Circus – great storytelling!, September 6, 2013 By Theodora

– This review is from: Piccadilly Circus (Paperback)

Great story of British ex-pats trying to make sense of their lives after WWII in the Algarve, Portugal. The colorful characters dared to speak the truth to one another despite the potential consequences. Some events definitely took me by surprise. Looking forward to author’s next novel!

5.0 out of 5 stars Light and easy reading, September 5, 2013 By Toni Ivey (Sandy Hook CT USA)

I enjoyed the story and writing style presented by James Mitchell in his book. The story is, at times light and lively, and other times thought provoking. I would recommend this title to anyone who enjoys reading short vignettes that are all linked together as they are here.

5.0 out of 5 stars NEXT BIG LIT HIT!, August 30, 2013 By Dr. ivy

– This review is from: Piccadilly Circus (Kindle Edition)
Engaging and enlightening, both! This book is one of those books that entertains and also makes you want to be a writer—a writer as adept and stylish as first-time novelist James Allen Mitchell and his Nick Caraway-like character, Smitty, an American writer (in all likelihood JAM himself observing from “within and without” having started writing ‘Circus’ in Portugal, the setting for the British expat debauchery), reminding us that a major theme of the book itself is how it came to be written in the first place.

A must read! Mitchell captured the sunny charm of the Algarve while exposing the steamy indulgence of the Brits who have descended upon this unspoiled corner of the world. I found myself cheering for Copper Jack, the decent and lovable hero surrounded by a “circus” of colorful and randy characters. You’ll be drawn into this well-written tale and laugh and cry all along the way!

– This review is from: Piccadilly Circus (Paperback)
Thoroughly enjoyed this book. I thought it unfolded like an old classic. As I came to care about these gritty, lonely and self destructive characters, and found myself hoping for them to somehow repair their chaotic lives, they find new ways to muck things up!

– This review is from: Piccadilly Circus (Paperback)
This is a Literary but raunchy tale of life lived to the full! A quirky look at Colonial Brits at their worst – love them or loathe them, they will keep you intrigued to the end!
