The evil that men (in Brighton) do,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Brightonomicon: Book 8 of the Brentford Trilogy (Kindle Edition)
Firstly this is a Robert Rankin not Ian Rankin novel (dont get them confused)
The story is of 12 interlinking adventures of Hugo Rune, and his apprentice Rizla. Which unlike the Apprenctice TV show dont involve idiots failing to run a business but a mixture of super natural and alien interventions.
The books are as much interested in telling a joke as telling a story and on this basis humour will be subjective, but there are running jokes and bad puns. Probably most similar to Spike Milligan novels but with the running themes from discworld.
I would recommend finding any one book to start with and then you are likely to either love them or hate them, as shown by the spread of reviews on the Amazon page.
