All right, said John. I thought all this was to be a fifty-fifty deal. You have a plan of your own you would like to discuss? ot as such. Well, until you do, perhaps we might try mine. I just felt it needed saying. I go now to the canal and attempt to recover Marchant. You go to the Memorial Library, dig out all the ancient maps of the borough you can find and photocopy them. Can you manage that?.

Rankin definitely has a skewed view of the world, which is why he's so funny. In spite of the outrageous plots you become attached to the characters and I would love to meet them. If you like offbeat books read the "Brentford Trilogy" which now consists of 7 books! I wish there were more.

It started off well, but Rankin meandered off into copying a prose style used by Jack Kerouac at one stage which meant my trusty Kindle had to jump several pages of pretentious tedium. It did get back on track eventually, but for me the damage had already been done. If I wanted to read spontaneous prose by the beat poets I would buy it, but I resented having a slab of it thrown at me by Rankin. Not one of his better efforts as far as I am concerned.

Some of this book reminded me of the worst sections of "Ulysses".Robert Rankin is not James Joyce. Bored me towards the middle.

Typical hilarious Rankin humor - awesome stuff

Robert Rankin has really created a set of characters who never disappoint. Predictably of John and Jim is what sets them apart from regular heros and makes them so unique.
