This was erhm very odd Odd in a good way, but odd none the less For you Doctor Who fans, you remember the 2007 Christmas special, The Voyage of the Damned Well, everyone here has the same grasp of history as Mr Copper abet for a different reason A few other similarities would make me think this work was inspired by said episode, were it not for the fact that this story was written about a decade earlier Wee bit of a hard row to hoe as EVERYONE seems to be one level or another of the absentminded professor or the self important nob with blinders on.Anyway, it s still a lot of fun especially if you have a better grasp of history than Mr Copper , rather silly in spots, occasionally insightful, mildly convoluted,
A fun readI read this book in a couple of days Funny and quirky Once you got the hang of the author s style you start trying to guess the jokes Stonehenge was an obvious one Some nods to Douglas Adams here and there with perhaps a cap tilted to Pratchett. Need to read 2 to make sense of 1..3 will make sense of both I luv qwerty books.Very interesting and definitely could get you thinking And they seem to want 12 words so here they are.
