About the Author
Charlie Hamilton James, the son of a sperm donor and a prolific dinner lady,
was raised by caterpillars in the Engadine region of Switzerland in the
latter part of the eighteenth century. His first book Kingfishers won
critical acclaim as possibly the best and only coffee table Kingfisher book
available for under a tenner. As well as writing he also enjoys, Netball,
extreme cross-stitch and heroin; he was also the first man to swim with wild
mackerel. He currently lives on boat in the Aegean sea with a haddock called
Martin. The Matewix is his second book and possibly his worst.
Top Customer Reviews
The matewix covers the first two films, and there are moments of pure genius. little things, such as amorphous' bizarre crush on Newo, the blue pill (giving Newo a twelve-year erection) combined with a Laura Ashley dress, the Smiff Clones and the Cheese Maker's scary way of making cheese are just a few things that had me crying with tears of laughter. I especially found funny the bit when Amorphous is sent back into the matewix as Laberta Butternut-Squash, and Titty and Newo try to rescue him.
WARNING: the book does have a few sexual references (such as the twelve-year erection) and constant swearing (usually by Nairobi), so it is not intended for young children.
however, if you like spoof books and have a good sense of humour, then buy it. it's bwilliant.
Just wait until you read Newo's rant on ranking ;)
Very funny and entertaining, well worth buying.
Funniest book I,ve read in a long time and would make an even better film than the original. Reminds me of the early days of Monty Python!!!!

I picked this book up and at first, couldn;t put it down as it was quite humourous, but as i got on the same old schoolboy jokes just wore thin. Read morePublished on 8 Mar. 2005 by E. R. Evans
Suitable reading for any aspiring author worried if he will ever find a publisher. Even this tasteless,third rate parody with its back of the school bus humour, found one. Read morePublished on 16 April 2004
