REVIEWS FROM AMAZON READERS:
Moira Farrell gave it 5 stars.
I liked this daft book a lot, actually made me laugh out loud in a couple of places, but that could just be my sense of humor.
I know my place gave it 4 stars.
Amusing. Wiity. Highly inventive. More than a bit mad. Cockneys, a Mockney, pirates, FBI and the Olympics. What is there not to like? Highly readable story of ..well…cockneys, a mockney, pirates, FBI and the Olympics. There is no point in even trying to explain this book. Just read it. You won’t be able to put it down. Robert Rankin. The Goons. A bit of Python, Round The Horne, I’m Sorry I’ll Read That Again for a few references as to what to expect.
TJ Howes gave it 4 stars
Very well written in a natural and easy flow. Just my level of daftness. Having read pretty much everything Robert Rankin has written I was looking for someone in a similar vein. Might just have found it. Only reason for four stars and not five is I feel there is more to be told.
Shot in one day during the Olympics.
