You couldn't make this stuff up if you tried ... Shot through with crypto-mysticism, freaky characters, and spooky/trippy historical revelations, GRAIL reads like a post-punk Travels with my Aunt and is almost as entertaining. As the Damned once sang: Neat, neat, neat! (Entertainment Weekly)
More credible than the DA VINCI CODE! (Mark Radcliffe)
The DA VINCI CODE gets the punk rock treatment (The Bookseller)
"Dawes' sardonic account of their various encounters and misadventures asserts the value of believing in your friends, even if they believe in fairy tales." (The Independant on Sunday)
" By the end it doesn't matter whether they've been successful in their hunt for the Holy Grail - its a thoroughly enjoyable, funny, touching and fascinating read and it's worth just going along for the ride" (Coventry Evening Telegraph)

I bought this book simply because I tend to buy every Rennes book that comes along from the very good `web of gold' for instance to the down right batty `city of secrets' springs to mind.
So I approach every book with a mixture of excitement and trepidation. However Rat Scabies and the Holy Grail is very different from anything else on the subject.
True it doesn't actually solve anything, but then again nor do any of the other various other books on the subject.
It does however entertain on a grand scale, this is not Lancelot in search of the Holy Grail, and it's more an idiot abroad and is much better because of it.
Less geometry and more punk drummers I say. Bravo.
I'm convinced that it would be an enjoyable night down the pub with Mr Scabies & Mr Dawes
