5.0 out of 5 stars Surreal Wanderlust, 2 Aug. 2006

This review is from: The Z to Z of Great Britain (Paperback)
This book had me crying with laughter from the first page. The author manages to visit what are clearly extremely tedious places and find something interesting/ funny/ philosophical about all of them. Yet, there's something gripping and makes me want to buy a folding bicycle and jump on a train to see Zeal Monachorum for myself.

The funniest book I've read in years.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sheer delight from start to finish, 26 Dec. 2007

Bo (Somerset) - See all my reviews
This review is from: The Z to Z of Great Britain (Paperback)
I fully succumbed - without much of a struggle - at page 25 (the sheep captions) and intend to make my life's work accruing points from visiting all the Z named locations (handy score sheet included at the back) .
This little book has it all - mirth, maps, photos, existential thoughts and even English Civil War facts (fact). Genius.

5.0 out of 5 stars A splendid read, 7 Dec. 2007
By 
Mr Dubbing (East Grinstead, West Sussex United Kingdom) - See all my reviews
This review is from: The Z to Z of Great Britain (Paperback)
Much much more than an extremely witty and amusing analysis of the British towns that flounder at the nether region of the alphabet, it provides a reflection from a unique perspective on many of the often neglected attributes of Britain.

A perfect Christmas gift for that "difficult" relative or friend.

This review is from: The Z to Z of Great Britain (Paperback)
The sort of book that needs to exist, and therefore does. A national tour through places beginning with Z: important research material for the provincial loner.

This review is from: The Z to Z of Great Britain (Paperback)
This book is hilarious, laugh out loud funny, in fact the funniest book I've read this year! You know when you have a drink, something or someone makes you laugh and you spit out your drink? That's what happens when you read this book. Buy it NOW and read it without delay. Caution: do NOT eat or drink whilst reading this book. Unless of course, you have a fetish for spitting out food and/or drink. In which case, ignore the caution. Enjoy!
