Semi-finalist in the 2011 Goodreads Choice Awards – Humor category
Neville Lansdowne fell off the world.
Actually, he did not so much fall off as let go. The world had been moving so quickly lately and Neville was finding it almost impossible to keep up.
Doodling is an engaging comic fantasy which relates the events that befall Neville after he finds himself abandoned by the world and adrift in the middle of an asteroid field. Douglas Adams meets Lewis Carroll (with just a touch of Gulliver’s Travels) as Neville wanders through his new home, meeting a variety of eccentric characters and experiencing some most unexpected adventures.

What reviewers are saying about it
I don’t think I’ve ever described something as a “romp” before, but the word definitely applies to the experience of reading Doodling.
– What Book is that
This is one of those short stories you read from start to finish with a big smile across your face……it was quirky, funny, imaginative, oddball and ingenious.
– Cath ‘n’ Kindle Book Reviews
The writing is creative and perfectly paced—quite comparable to Lewis Carroll. The book is chockful of metaphors, if you care to notice them.
– Gathering Leaves
Doodling is an entertaining, light, yet deep novel. After first reading, it seems like just a quick fun romp through Gould’s imagination, but upon reflection layers of messages reveal themselves.
– Review my Book on Amazon
There is a lot of social satire in this book, as well as deeper philosophical meanings, and the dialogue is sparkling and very comical.
– Writing on the Rocks
…absurd, quirky, breezy, fun and a total delight to read. It is also a witty little metaphor for today’s social climate, without being preachy or heavy-handed.
– A. F. Stewart
This book is perfect for adults who want a great metaphorical story with a little bit of a lesson. This book is magic!
– A Bookish Affair
I found myself cheering on Neville and his team, and would recommend Doodling to anyone who enjoys a fun read.
