"The First Casualty" by Ben Elton - part World War I murder mystery, part political polemic

“The First Casualty” takes its title from the truism that the first casualty of war is truth.

The novel is a pursuit of truth on multiple levels: the truth about the killing of British Officer well-known for his poetry, the truth about the British soldiers’ experience during World War I, the truth that war damages everyone it touches. 86 more words

Review of Time and Time Again - Ben Elton

TV comedy scriptwriter is what springs to mind when someone mentions Ben Elton to me. After that is: stand up comic and then writer of satirical novels. 253 more words

Time and Time Again by Ben Elton
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
