Any opinions I share on this book are completely my own and have not been influenced by outside people.

Synopsis: If you enjoy British humour then Did Socrates Get Pissed? is a must-read book for you. It is a black comedy with a lot of laughs which starts in Camp Bastion in Helmand Province with the impending discharge, following Defence Cuts Review, of Fred .... his concerns about the job opportunities available to him in civilian life, his troubled marital life with Chardonnay, his friendship with Wily Sid, the Regiment comedian and can do man, and ends back in the Lower Pennines in the United Kingdom.

Review: Firstly, I would like to say that I am very grateful for having won a copy of this book. When seeing the title I was confused about what the book was going to be about but when I read the synopsis I knew that this was a book that I wanted to read. Normally, I do not enjoy comedy/humour books but there was something about this book that drew me in and made me curious about the book. This was an unusual and interesting story that managed to grip my attention and made me want to read more by the author. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading humour and fantasy/fiction. 

Rating: 4/5 I gave this book a 4 star rating as it is a good read but it is not the genre that I like to read. However, this book will have a permanent place on my bookshelf.
