Ants in the Big Onion Give Away!

on May 21, 2011

I received my copy of Ants in the Big Onion last Monday and I finished it on Thursday.  Yes, it was that good. The best bit? Smaller print than normal, which means… more to read!

May and Annica run a B&B called the Fox ‘n Zulu in Meyerton (Which is a small town lying 15 km north of Vereeniging in Gauteng, South Africa- just in case you were wondering- I did) and it details all the trials and tribulations of the group of individuals which live there.

You get to re meet some of the original characters and if you were wondering where some of them had got to and how on earth May and Annica came to be running a B& B, don’t fret, it will all be explained in the first couple of pages.

It is hilarious! The characters had me giggling at their antics and gasping at some, but really what else can happen when you throw a bunch of unique individuals into a small abode, oh and a lonely snake.

As it says on the back cover: “Ants… is enough to taunt every cultural perception and strain even the most enduring friendship, but all visitors check in for a bakkieload of laughs.”

And so, seeing as though its the end of the world and all, I have a give away of one copy of Ants in the Big Onion and it is open to every one. Yes, you read correctly and Yes, because that’s what we are like over here at The Book Club Blog, feeling the love and giving it back…

    Ooh, my favorite book of all time? I think that may be The Greenlanders by Jane Smiley – but if you ask me tomorrow, I may give a different answer! 🙂

    The book sounds like fun. Thanks for the giveaway. I’ve got one going on my blog too, do check it out!

    Meyerton has been in the news a lot recently, as it is the hub around which the Midvaal municipality is formed. The local elections made Midvaal a household placename, but few people, when pressed, will be able to describe where it is. To me, it is home. As for my favourite book, it is undoubtedly The Lord of the Rings, but I also generally enjoy all of Sir Terry Pratchett’s work.
