Impending Disaster by Colin Guest was a pleasant companion as I whiled away a couple hours on the beach. As expected, it’s a short story that takes a reader right in and continues with non-stop action until the end. It’s not always easy for a writer to develop their characters when working within a smaller word count, but Guest does a great job of making them feel authentic. Brevity can also cause problems when multiple subplots come into play, but on that front Guest also had the skill to effectively keep pace and timing in line with his narrative. Whether you’re spending an afternoon in an armchair or on a picnic blanket, this is a good piece of adventure fiction that is easy to recommend to readers who enjoy quick escapes into worthwhile stories.

5.0 out of 5 stars An interesting and funny account of an expat’s adventures whilst working abroad – a great read!

Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on September 22, 2016

I thoroughly enjoyed joining the author on his many adventures as an expat working abroad, reading about the mis-adventures of some of his colleagues and the anecdotes that only someone who has travelled extensively and has worked with people from all walks of life could possibly recount; a great read, written in a style which has equal shares of both humour and humility.
