Popular Kindle Devil in Disguise [3.5] More camp, showbizzy, trashy fun with a dark edge and a bit of tongue in its cheek... i.e. enough similarities to Murder Most Fab that it should satisfy most readers who liked Clary's first novel. The main characters are also a gay man and his fag hag best friend. However, it does have a stronger chicklit element than his earlier book, and I felt it was told in a more unsettling way, both meaning that I personally didn't enjoy it quite as much as the main story got going; it wasn't such optimal comfort reading for me, though I still raced through it, and it would surely be fine for many.These two novels of Julian Clary's are the sort of genre mashup that publishers might say didn't fit their popular fiction marketing categories, if they were by an unknown author without a ready made fan base, (they're the sort of thing that doesn't get published too often) and I find them quite refreshing in the way they mess around with certain formulae whilst sticking to others. I particularly like the way they leave in the more explicit and dark details of gay male life - grubby casual sex, substance abuse, bitter loneliness - whilst maintaining the flippant tone (although as a lot of Devil in Disguiseconcentrates on Molly's story, there's less of this stuff than in Murder Most Fab). It's a shame there aren't more novels like these, as they would be a go-to subgenre of pop fiction for me.

  2. I wish this review system allowed half stars as I would then give this book 4.5 I cannot give it five simply because although it is witty, the characters are excellent, the story is exciting if a little far fetched, there are many huge laugh out loud moments, it is camp but has mass appeal, it is Clary through and through, it cannot be a five just because it is missing that, for want of a better word, X factor.I love the story and the whole premise, as well as the glimpse into the showbiz or not [...]


  3. Drawn a lot from Julian s own life in the entertainment industry, I m sure it was a fairly easy novel for him to write Having said that and it sounding like a criticism , it was a thoroughly enjoyable read.There is a sensitivity that comes across in his writing that I always find amazing, given his public persona I found the character of Lilia Delvard a fabulously drawn one Never so much have you wanted to see the demise of an old biddy who pawns herself off as a defenceless, harmless old lady I [...]


  4. OH MY GOD this is like the BEST BOOK I have EVER READ You emotions go from happy, to concerned, to worried, to angry and furious, to screaming at the main charaacter for being so bloody downright stupid, and so on, it s an amazing book, and I love it soooooo much It s fair to say, this is definitely the best book I have ever read, and far outweighs Julian s previous fantastic book Murder Most Fab You HAVE to read this book


  5. Gothic, grotesque and extremely funny, but it s the excellent characterisation lifts this novel above the average Lila in particular is a comic horror bag of constant delight Molly too, was tangible and believable Simon is clearly the author and there s than a touch of Lily Savage about Genita But it s not a laugh a minute, there is some deeply dark stuff here and the tragic moments are as well drawn as the laughs touchingly human and real.


  6. I am a fan of Clary s comedy and had high hopes for this book I was disappointed It was bland, uninspiring, predictable and not particularly funny An easy read for some brain candy, not particularly well written, but I did at least finish it Well, it only took a couple of evenings A bit of a distraction I suppose.


  7. Julian has a real way with building up the story I love how he leaves vast clues for the reader but his heroine is clueless or has ways to explain the weirdness away in her own mind, much like real people do about the way things are heading Nicely executed, and a not quite expected ending made it all the better.


  8. I enjoyed this than I thought I would A darkly funny, camp and naughty read which is just as you would expect from Julian Clary However, it was also well written with some cleverly thought out characters, unexpected depth in places and had some mystery as well Really made me think about the cult of celebrity too I had trouble putting it down and even laughed out loud.


  9. All a bit silly, but a quick enough read, though it took me 100 pages or so before it wasn t an effort Wouldn t worry or look forward too much to the cover s promise that it s filthy plenty of sex but there s nothing graphic here.


  10. A good read Believable characters You get the feeling there s a bit of Julian Clary in the Simon character My only complaint was that I wanted Molly, our main character, to figure out the devil in disguise sooner how could she not.Warning unethical sex.



  11. didn t enjoy this as much as his first book I felt it was too slow to get to the point, I can see he was trying to build intrigue but because of the humour it lost something in the thrill.


  12. ok maybe i was not in the mood for this, i appropriated that the writing was witty and light, an easy read is what I was after and it did that However, the plot was way to predictable for me.








  13. I highly recommend this book.I found this book by mistake I could read this book in one sitting.was excellent read a wonderful story.with few twistd funny as well.would read this again.
