Hillarious and fun..!,
This review is from: God Emperor of Didcot (Space Captain Smith) (Paperback)
This is a really fun book, as good as a standup comic for entertainment -but being a book lasts as long as you want to read it. The Second British Space Empire is the greatest interstellar empire in human history: as rediculous and steely-eyed as the last one, anyone with a knowledge of British culture (imperial culture) will get every sly and witty and crude and silly joke made. Plot is a plus, humour is a pleasure. Though it does have a plot -quite a serious one too- but it's adventure's own reading, with a whiff of national pride and self-mockery. Prepare to be 'civilised.' Read, enjoy and laugh.
