1.0 out of 5 stars A real dissapointment, 4 Feb. 2004
Iain Banks is the new "Pub Bore". This book fails spectacularly to either impress or inform... unless you are interested in minutely understanding the handling and performance of the M5 - no, not the motorway, the beemer.
Chapter after chapter of drivel, with the odd paragraph of "Oh, and we visited a distillery, and the car park was nice... Did I tell you about the time I took the 911 down the b925 near Auchenbogle...?
One also gets the impression that this "Jolly" has been funded by one of the major corporates. I wonder if Diageo were impressed?
Talk about an opportunity missed.
