3.0 out of 5 stars Ok, needs work, 23 Aug. 2006
Although being well written, with a nice cover, we found the book somwhat offencive to our personal beliefs. Perhaps the author should review his target auidence.

Good read, would not reccomend it to non-christians.

4.0 out of 5 stars I Love This Book, 23 Aug. 2006
There seems little point in describing at length the storyline of these books: despite never having previously read or to my knowledge seen the film adaptation as a 30-something year old first time reader so much of Adventuers in Popular Democracy is familiar I seem to have absorbed much of this through osmosis. Suffice to say the book is a heady mix of nonsense, word play, poetry and some occasionally painful puns. I slightly preferred the 2nd half as it had a better structure thanks to the underlying story of Blair being a pawn in a chess game, whereas the first half is very rambling. This is a great edition though, with all the original illustrations and an illuminating essay concerning the creation of the book. Fantastic enough to be enjoyed by children, while the use of language ensures adults can still get a great deal of fun out of this.
