Price: $5.00
Mike Fendalton is a once-in-a-generation programmer - totally inept and unspeakably unlucky. His life in Braintree, Essex, revolves around the pub, work and failing to get lucky with women. So it comes as a major surprise when aliens abduct him to help them fix their enormous, out-of-control planetary defence system. It is an event that is to change his life completely. "Saving Romford" is a humorous antidote to those books and television programs about genius programmers who can divert enemy missiles and break into the Pentagon's computers using nothing but a cellphone and a laptop. Our hero is a 9 to 5 slob who is far more concerned with his own well-being than that of his long-suffering employer. Saving Romford is proving to be a very popular book with computer people and as a retirement or birthday gift for people in the computer industry.

    "Saving Romford" The author states that the hero is an inept IT man. For all those who don't know enough about computers he will seem an expert. His adventures seem to all end in trouble though,and gradually you begin to like the hero and wish him well. John Mycroft writes very well and his dialogue is natural if a bit blue, but his descriptions are very good and you can feel yourself there. By the end of the book you wish that it would keep going. Maybe a sequel?
