3.0 out of 5 stars The latest, 29 Oct 2009
I suppose most people favour the earlier disc world books and I have to say they probably are better. The latter novels just lack a certain someting, having said that this is one of the better onesSmall Mercy If your a Pratchett fan give this book a try as well

3.0 out of 5 stars The Lost Symbol, 29 Oct 2009
Not a bad book a bit talky in places and not different enough from the other in the series. If you liked this give Small Mercy by Tom Dawes a try as wellSmall Mercy

5.0 out of 5 stars Thank god for Small Mercy, 22 Sep 2008
This review is from: Small Mercy (Paperback)
This book is possibly the funniest book ever written. Its like Douglas Adams, Pratchett, Rankin all mixed up with some killer songs and the best baddies since Terrahawks. Get it into your life people!!!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars SERIES 3, 3 Jan 2008
This was the first series that I watched and I have to say that since watching the first two I wouldn't say this was as bad a some have made out. So some characters re appear, get over it, if they're still funny so what. The Crack Fox was probably the best new character, like something out of a kids show gone badly wrong. Series 2 was probably the best but people do tend to get a bit narky if something they've watched with their dog suddenly finds a bit more popularity. Anyways, if your into this sort of schtick give Small Mercy by Tom Dawes a read you might even like it

3.0 out of 5 stars The Review, 2 Jan 2008
It would be more like 2.5 stars having said that I thought it was much better than The Toyminator and shaded The Brightonomicon. Its just that its nothing we haven't read before, but I suppose you read Rankin because you like his style. Try Small Mercy, its Rankinesque

3.0 out of 5 stars Judgement day for The Toyminator, 9 Jan 2007
Yeees, I wanted to like this book after finding The Hollow Chocolate Bunnies to be a bit flat. The trouble with Rankins books are that they tend to suffer when they stray to far from Brentford. The Witches of Chiswick was kickass and The Brightonomicon was alright but The Toyminator I kind of read through in no time and Just felt, well, a bit like it had killed a bit of time. This is all a bit negative, Just to say that Rankins at his best when telling demented stories about suburbia (The Antipope, Snuff Fiction, Notradamus ate my Hamster) And that I'd take the ramblings of Pooley and Omally over the adventures of Eddy Bear any day of the week, exept tuesdays. Any way, feel free to disagree and besmerch my good name. As Joan of Arc once said

"Can anyone smell burning"

4.0 out of 5 stars The X files, 1 April 2006
The first season of the X Files is in my humble opinion one of the best. This is mostly because its quite easy to just sit back and watch unlike later seasons in which the whole conspiracy story just gets plain bonkers. There is a certain naiveness here too even though the seeds for later plots are being sewn. Top episodes are Squeeze & Toomes, Young at Heart and Miracle man not far behind. The closing episode The Erlenmeyer flask gives a taste of whats to come in following seasons.

3.0 out of 5 stars Zulus, Thousands of them !, 14 Nov 2005
As I started to read this book I began to think that we were falling into the world of self parody. Some of the in jokes that followed on from other books do seem be almost bled dry and stylisticaly its very similar to just about every other Rankin book ever. But I persevered and the story soon got under my skin. Some of the conversations between Rizla and Rune are brilliant and Rankin is still probably the funniest writer alive. So although this is far from his best give it a try, you'll never see Brighton in quite the same light again.
