The Magic Vodka Wardrobe by Sheila Patel (My Goodreads Review)

The Magic Vodka Wardrobe

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is a fast-paced 100mph black and zany comedy about two sisters… well three really, because one is in Australia and appears via CCTV. Also a mad aunt. They visit a bar in the sister’s bedroom wardrobe. Yes - this wardrobe is in their bedroom. The bar is run by a man named Bachittar. This little fantasy world is quite safe because if anyone over 55 ventures into the wardrobe they end up losing their memories.

How cosy for the girls. They can get away with murder in the Secret Vodka Wardrobe. As the story trundles along, we are introduced to all sorts of neighbours that visit the sister’s corner shop run by their parents. The girls can see what is going on via the Vodka bars CCTV in the magic wardrobe. Sometimes Donny Osmond appears at the bar.

There comes a herd of mayhems. A Knickerless gate crasher bringing impending danger to the secret way of life. These mayhems bring comical and vulgar images. They manifest in your mind. Mistaking a quickie to be an offer of a James Patterson novel. The whole thing is like The League of Gentlemen comedy on Prozac.
