Similar to works by Ben Elton, There There My Dear will appeal to fans of political satire, particularly fans of George Orwell’s 1984.
Neil has taken a unique, but extremely topical idea and made it into something of a thriller. It makes you think about how we are so easily influenced by the power of celebrity and media.
This novel grips you on so many levels. A smart thriller, oozing with dark humour, it's also a disturbing reminder of how society is manipulated by the media.
I have been thinking about the difference between ‘Fake News’ and ‘alternative facts’. It’s quite a difficult one to work out. ‘Fake News’ was used to describe the alleged involvement of Russia in Donald Trump’s presidential campaign. Trump denied the accusations, even though Russia confirmed that there had been contact with Trump’s campaign. Who to believe?
