8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Victor HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 14 Jan 2011
Format: Paperback
Tom Sharpe's second novel returned to the fertile ground of South Africa and the characters of Konstabel Els, Lieutenant Verkramp and Kommandant Van Heerden. Following from the events of `Riotous Assembly', this follows the three leads as they unintentionally wreak havoc across the peaceful suburbs of Zululand.

This is an absolutely hilarious book. Sharpe's real skill is to take seemingly innocuous situations, then, logical step by seemingly logical step morph them into a bizarre and screamingly funny situation. All the steps seem sane and logical, but the end result is as far from it as you can get.

As well as the anarchic humour, there is the serious side. Part of what makes Sharpe's South African books stand out so much above the rest of his oeuvre is his study of the people and attitudes of that place and time. When I first read these as a teenager I could not believe that these were real characters with their casual racism and paranoias. I thought that these were caricatures with attitudes exaggerated for comic effect. I have, over the intervening years, learned that such people really do exist. Sharpe performs an important job by exposing the South Africa of the time for what it was, and satirising it so well.

An excellently written, eminently readable, hilariously funny book with a serious message buried under the laughs. Five stars, six if I could.

Format: Paperback
Terrific story! This is the sequel to "Riotous Assembly," so if you have not read either, it's best to read that first and meet all the characters first. Still it works well as a standalone, a picture of Old South Africa, Boers v. English v. blacks. And exploding ostriches of course.

Oh its absolutely filthy, not for the kiddies. I can be a bit tetchy about rude humour, but this completely works!

Outrageous, bawdy, and violent. What more do you want?

Let's cut to the chase, this book along with Riotous assembly are without doubt the funniest books i've ever read.
Unlike the other Sharpe books (which are nowhere as good i hasten to add) you will find that once you've started you cannot put them down.My wife,i'm sure, contemplated having me admitted under the mental health act, such were my outbursts of laughter.
Buy both these books, you will read them again and again.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Mr. Michael Smith on 22 Jan 2011
Format: Paperback
What happens in this Book, if it were real, would - in the present day - make startling Tabloid headlines day after day. Shocking revelations about the hilarious attempts to subdue South African Police or Military Officers from becoming "entangled" with the locals.

Anthony Burgess had it first... in "A Clockwork Orange." Trying to rid a young delinquent of his violent ways by forcing him to watch violent acts on a screen, thus making him feel sick at the thought of it. Tom Sharpe chooses electrical shocks to the genitals - plus anesthetic injections to the same parts - to avert any cross-racial copulation. In the mid 70's this was funny... hilarious actually. Today though... let's face it... it is STILL hilarious - for realists ! Ha Ha.

Anyone with the mildest interest in "farce" will embrace this - no matter what year it is. Riotous Assembly, and this follow-on, paved the way for Mr Sharpe's delightful, delicious and laugh-out-loud situational comedy settings of his future works. I defy anyone NOT to laugh. Highly recommended.

Tom Sharpe is one of the funniest authors we have. His humour is more for men however but is very, very funny.

Tom Sharpe at his very best. Lots of laughs and many explosive moments. To describe the plot would be to give away too much and spoil it for those who haven't read it yet, but watch out for the unexpected return of a dead man.

This is Tom Sharpe's best book by far! The exploding ostrich section and the tests carried out with electrodes are so funny that I couldn't stop laughing.
If you have never read a Tom Sharpe book before, start with this one!

6 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Chris Ringwood on 21 Jun 2000
Format: Paperback
The memorable characters of Riotous Asembly return for another dose of Antipodean mayhem, and the joys of apartheid. this time the whole town gets the "treatment" as defined by Konstabel Els zealous actions. To sweeten the mixture this time a psychologist from Auschwitz or Belsen (take your pick) get's to practice her skills - professional and otherwise - upon Konstable Els who didn't get off QUITE so scott-free this time. No wonder the whites handed over the reins! "Vintage" Sharpe!
