A typical Rankin plot: Cornelius and Tuppe are on an epic quest to retrieve the suppressed chapters of The Book of Ultimate Truths, and to keep them out of evil hands. Hugo Rune, the author of the book in the book, appeared in earlier Rankin novels, but now his outlandish ideas get the full attention they deserve: about the secret life of Gandhi and H.G. Wells, about the strange behavior of biros and small scews, stories that make you laugh aloud.
This was the first book I read from Robert Rankin, and at times I wondered if this guy needed to see a doctor. I read it again recently, after having read all his other books, and I found out that I had missed a lot of jokes during the first reading. The more you read these books, the better they get.
Read this one and expand your mind! And the ending of this book is...well, MINDBLOWING!
Douglas Adams earns five stars in this category, and Adams this is not. This is the Jedi Knight's effort as compared to the Master's. How very unfortunate that the Master is dead. While Rankin is far far better than the average (... as if there are enough authors out there who embark upon this kind of venture to make a statistically significant 'average'...), his storytelling is not nearly as masterful, but well worth the time and money to read it, especially given the lack of contemporary authors capable of anything meaningful in this genre.

If you've read any Robert Rankin, you don't really need this review.

Unfair judgement of this item!! After a month of waiting Amazon can't ship it or the Antipope. US Rankin fans beware, this is not necessarily a proper outlet for order.Published on January 21, 2006 by R. Morris
I read this book once and laughed out loud. I read this book twice and had a giggly fit. I lent it to my Grandma and she didn't give it back. Read morePublished on May 10, 2001 by email@example.com
