This is not a Drill

This is not a Drill (2007) by Paul Carter is the sequel to his successful and amusing first book Don’t Tell Mum I work on an Oil Rig. The first book is funny and highly enjoyable. Many people who read that would wonder if the second is as good. The answer is no.
The book isn’t as funny or nearly as compelling as the first. The best stories were used in the first one. The poor writing of the first one could be forgiven because it was so much fun. In This is Not a Drill it grates.
