5.0 out of 5 stars Thought-provoking and funny, 9 Feb 2014
It's an unlikely story, a remote Polynesian tribe decide that the renowned xenophobe Prince Philip is their god. Just as unlikely is the idea that the Daily Express tv critic and detective story writer Matthew Baylis has a lifelong obsession with this tale and goes across the planet to find out about it. Sounds like a Mickey- take all round, but actually, even though this is a very funny book, it's also a very thought-provoking and thoughtful look at our colonial past and the way other societies have coped with it. Really interesting book.
