More About the Author

Robert Rankin describes himself as a teller of tall tales. The Morning Star describes him as 'The Master of Silliness', and his publisher describes him as The Master of Far Fetched Fiction. He is the author of more than thirty novels, of which he has sold millions of copies, and he is published - and making people laugh - around the world.

Despite his remarkable publishing success, Robert has never taken himself too seriously. He loves going on tour, signing books for readers, and his appearances at signings and conventions are legendary, often including a stand-up routine, a song (accompanied by his 'air-ukulele'), and an always-entertaining question-and-answer session. Robert Rankin is a great entertainer, whether in person or through his novels, with wit, humour and an incredible personal warmth.

But that's not all! In addition to being a talented writer, comedian and musician, he's also an incredible artist . . . so incredible, that he creates his own stunning book covers.

Reading his books can and will inspire you, scare you, thrill you and, above all, entertain you. His novels are an outlet for the soul, and food for the imagination.

This is truly a marvelous book. It is full of the running gags, stupid puns, deranged descriptions and confused characters that is the hallmark of Mr. Rankin. In this book, Mr. Rankin takes over the world in a very nervous manner, with the help of his holy guardian sprout, Barry, who gets him in more trouble than he's worth.

This is the best Rankin book - and one of the best humour books around. He combines his excellent jokes with a short piece at the beginning of the book that is one of the funniest things ever written - yes, you heard it. The overall standard of the book is high, however the plot is not too far above his average (if humourous) standards. Especially worthwhile for Rankin veterans, as large parts of the Sprout mythology are revealed X-Files style at the end of the book.

I don't like to review books until I finish them, but I'm making an exception in this case. Mainly because I don't think it matters where you start or stop :-) Half way through, it is nothing but pure witty Rankin-ness on the loose, unfettered by narrative or plot or anything else. Fast-paced is not quite the word. It is a runaway train of a book. I find myself reading it out loud to my poor husband more often than he would probably prefer. The chapters loosely link together, but really, each one essentially stands on its own. I hesitate to say like short stories... Because it's not quite like that. If you've read Rankin's other books (and I DO NOT recommend that you begin with this one if you have never read a Rankin novel before) you will recognize many familiar characters--Fangio, Neville, Jim Pooley, Norman, etc. I rarely laugh out loud when I read, but this book has me laughing constantly. There are the obvious jokes, but also there is a more subtle, sly wit that pervades the whole thing. I don't think there is a lot of middle ground with this book. You'll either hate it, or give it five stars.
