There are dark forces at work in our world (and in Manchester in particular), so thank God The Stranger Times is on hand to report them . . .

A weekly newspaper dedicated to the weird and the wonderful (but mostly the weird), it is the go-to publication for the unexplained and inexplicable.

At least that's their pitch. The reality is rather less auspicious. Their editor is a drunken, foul-tempered and foul-mouthed husk of a man who thinks little of the publication he edits. His staff are a ragtag group of misfits. And as for the assistant editor . . . well, that job is a revolving door - and it has just revolved to reveal Hannah Willis, who's got problems of her own.

When tragedy strikes in her first week on the job The Stranger Times is forced to do some serious investigating. What they discover leads to a shocking realisation: some of the stories they'd previously dismissed as nonsense are in fact terrifyingly real. Soon they come face-to-face with darker forces than they could ever have imagined.

The Stranger Times is the first novel from C.K. McDonnell, the pen name of Caimh McDonnell. It combines his distinctive dark wit with his love of the weird and wonderful to deliver a joyous celebration of how truth really can be stranger than fiction.

The narrator was especially amazing, and the story is wildly hilarious and engaging.

It was funny and suspenseful, and I loved the narrator's voices of the different characters. I really enjoyed it.

Quite entertaining. I'm not good at reviews and the synopsis is there, but it is silly and fun and just what I needed to escape.

The Stranger Times is such an amazing book, I read the synopsis and I thought ok it sound interesting but I was pleasantly surprised as to how good it actually was! It was funny and it had a good pace and the characters are all lovely I really cannot wait for the second book! And I wish I didn’t have to wait until next year to hear about my favorite characters but I definitely will, I would rapidly recommend this book to anyone who ask about a good enjoyable read.
