"The publisher describes Rankin as a 'beloved British Eccentric.' Wrong. He's a total wack job. But if you can understand him, you'll find, oddly enough, that the more you think about it, the funnier it gets." "Kirkus Reviews" on "Necrophenia""

I did not, however, immediately get on with "The Japanese Devil Fish" collection. I did get more out of reading books 1 and 2 in the collection a second time, but I still didn't like them as much as his other books. But this third book in the sequence - "The Educated Ape and Other Wonders of the Worlds" - hits the spot a lot more for me.
I don't think you really read Rankin's books for the plot as that is somehow inconsequential compared to the characters and the humour, but this book actually has a plot of sorts and I think it flows quite well. Darwin the Monkey Butler is an excellent character and he features in a lot of this book.
It's still not quite the 5 star read the original "Brentford" books were but I enjoyed this one far more than the previous two.
Personally I had a good bit of fun taking the scenic tour through this outing and when added to some wonderfully inventive concepts, solid prose and some more than interesting characters really makes this a book that I was pleased I spent the time with.
I 've been a fan of his work ever since I picked up a paperback of the Antipope and have never been disappointed with everything I've read. This book is no exception.
