Rating: 4 Stars

The Cautionary Tale of Butch Black is a diary-style novel telling of World Mart employee Butch Black’s descent into madness after ten years of loyal service in a job that isn’t really going anywhere fast.

I really enjoyed this story and J.B Maynard’s style of writing. Butch’s documented descent is an intriguing read as you try to decide whether he has uncovered the terrifying truth about the company he works for or if the repetitive and monotonous years have finally taken their toll.

This is a quick read filled with amusing one liners and observations about life and I look forward to the next instalment, Black Wonderland.
