5.0 out of 5 stars Insane
Alexei takes us on a madcap adventure of a train ride turned murder mystery. This book is completley insane! Along with the mystery we get wild tales about train rides as a kid,football,sex,and just about everything else all crammed into 152 pages of lunacy! There is no point in writing about the murder mystery because its basicly background music,for Alexei is all over...

3.0 out of 5 stars Stand Up Novel
`Train to Hell' claims to be a hilarious travel book, a gripping murder mystery, a political treatise and a totally new way of slicing bacon, and although it doesn't live up to all the above claims it is a fantastic read. In reality an extended surreal stand up routine from Alexi the King of surreal stand up routines.

5.0 out of 5 stars Insane, 10 Dec 2002
This review is from: Train to Hell (Paperback)
Alexei takes us on a madcap adventure of a train ride turned murder mystery. This book is completley insane! Along with the mystery we get wild tales about train rides as a kid,football,sex,and just about everything else all crammed into 152 pages of lunacy! There is no point in writing about the murder mystery because its basicly background music,for Alexei is all over the place including hilarious sketchings of whats brewing in Alexei's brain. If you like to laugh or are in any way an Alexei fan you must read this book. And all Alexei's books for that matter.

3.0 out of 5 stars Stand Up Novel, 23 May 2008
`Train to Hell' claims to be a hilarious travel book, a gripping murder mystery, a political treatise and a totally new way of slicing bacon, and although it doesn't live up to all the above claims it is a fantastic read. In reality an extended surreal stand up routine from Alexi the King of surreal stand up routines.

Alexi has been commissioned to write a book about a train journey to the European cup final but when one of the eastern block players is killed by one of the group of eccentric football fans aboard Alexi's carriage things get more interesting.

The best parts are the philosophical wrangling of Sterling and Carl Moss, the Moss Brothers, England's least wanted men. Alexi was to later bring this pair back to life to great success in the Comic Strip film `Didn't you Kill my Brother?'.
