Why was Into Happy Havens written as a novel Answer The narrator in a work of fiction is granted an opportunity to express his her views vividly, with many personal empiric opinions about issues which will be rejected in fact based reports.The editing process for reports or research findings does not allow such flexibility, nor does it permit or encourage the writer to make any statement which could be regarded as politically incorrect, beyond the ability of the authors to deliver, contrary to any legal or corporate laws, or outside of the terms of reference that set parameters on the research enquiry before commencement.As an example of a reality v perception approach, no report research could include the statement A Welsh windbag who drones on for ages and ages, grazing happily on the southern slopes of the Orals..as a viable expression of the shared views that exist between Senior Junior managers in the same organisation.The freedom granted to the narrator in a reality based novel enables him her to make pertinent asides and use humour or romance to illustrate valid and memorable lines which re enforce the novel to lasting effect.Dennis Coates Great book with a unique tone and turn of phrase Very enjoyable. i was the lucky winner of a copy of this novel through a goodreads win it is a very funny tongue in cheek kind of book about hotel management it moves along at a good pace, following the hotel manager s problems that crop up within the hotel and the pains of dealing with his own bosses this book is laugh out loud funny at times and i thoroughly enjoyed it looking forward to reading books by dennis coates syndi I wanted to read this book because I am working in a hotel and I know how hard it can be to get all the things right.There is something I ve come to value about hotel stays how in the accustomed rituals and formalities of arrival and departure, each visit mimics a larger journey And in that transition, the span between check in and check out, guests are liberated from the uncomfortable truth that, sooner than anyone likes to imagine, the trip has ended and the time has come to pay the bill.In his book, Dennis Coates shared funny moments as poor Martin Hammond, the new appointed manager, tries without success to deal with managing the hotel, a large staff, and of his love life.Dealing with unhappy customers, and dishonest staff, Mr.Hammond give us a snapshot of life in the hospitality industry very close to the well known English series of Basil Fawlty.full of British humor and embarrassing situations, I ll give it an incontestable five stars.
