5.0 out of 5 stars Simply a great read.
Are you looking for an excellent read which will make you or someone in your life laugh? Then look no further. The Moon's a Balloon (and "Bring on the Empty Horses!") are two of the funniest and most satisfying books I have ever read.

2.0 out of 5 stars A Kindle Balloon

5.0 out of 5 stars The best biography I have ever read, 13 Aug. 2012

This review is from: The Moon's a Balloon (Paperback)
If you haven't read this you are missing a real treat. The most touching, amusing and interesting biographies I have ever read. One of the very few books I have ever read twice and on second reading remembered after many years why it held such a place in my all time top ten reads.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ruined by typos !!, 27 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I read this book many years ago and hugely enjoyed its witty and engaging style. However the Kindle version is littered with typing errors which really get in the way of the reading. I expect better when spending this sort of money on a book.
