Neil McInnes' The Last Resort is starting to get some much deserved recognition. Below is a review of Last Resort by Sarah Cook, posted on http://www.AussieAuthors.com

Neil McInnes has woven a very entertaining tale, tongue-in-cheek but so scarily real!
A refreshingly ‘fun-to-read’ story with a cast of thousands! Okay… maybe not ‘thousands’ but there are certainly a lot of people. Those who live in the retirement village, as well as the people that own and run the place and a few outsiders thrown into the mix as well.

In any story it is a difficult task to keep track of a lot of characters and to give each one a separate personality. Neil McInnes has achieved this and carried it off beautifully and the way he has linked the seemingly isolated scenes is brilliant.

Not only a fantastic read, but also a great learning experience for aspiring authors!

With ‘The Last Resort’ Neil McInnes has achieved something very special and I can easily see this as a great Aussie film. Great work, great read!
