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.

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.

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.

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 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!

Book described as GOOD condition is actually like brand new.
What a bargain - so good it can be given as a gift.
