Do Not Pass Go: From the Old Kent Road to Mayfair by Tim Moore

Not as funny as his previous books, but then this is a more studied and harder topic. Still funny though, with plenty of laughs, just not as many as usual. Anyway, I liked it and it sat well between my reading Iain Sinclair's London Orbital (for the serious study) and Iain Aitch's A Fete Worse Than Death (for the laughs). Should really read about somewhere other than England now.

Great book that had me laughing to myself as well as out loud on occassion. Very funny dissection of my fellow Englanders at play and was nice to read about how crop circles are made. Enjoyed the hands-on approach, especially in the chapter on my home town of Blackpool. Made me almost homesick and want to get back. Reminded me of Tony Hawks Round Ireland with a Fridge but all in all a little funnier.
