Puerile,expletive ridden, adolescent toilet humor of the basest kind. Not sure if it's a sad reflection on myself or the author that I laughed so hard I thought I'd ruptured a vital organ. My mother used to tell me that swearing wasn't big and it wasn't clever (like two of the characters in this book) but in the right context it can be bloody funny. Mr Wilkinson definitely has a way with words... similar to the way long term prisoners have with new inmates when asking them to pick up the soap.
This is a collection of short stories that is not only very funny despite it's vulgarity but because of it. The more astute reader will soon realise that there is in fact some very clever writing here when you look below the surface, which given Dean Wilkinson's credible and experienced writing background in books, games and television is not surprising.
As I said, Shakespeare it isn't... but I'm sure Henry IV and Macbeth would have been markedly different if the bard had read these tales beforehand. If you have the energy for a four hour long snigger punctuated with bouts of rib cracking, hernia inducing laughter then I heartily recommend it.
