5.0 out of 5 stars Forever the best, 15 Feb. 2008
This review is from: Intervention (Hardcover)
At the time it was published I loved this series and I still do, it remains probably the best. If you read science fiction you have to read these. Repeatedly. If they could only find a way to film them!

1.0 out of 5 stars Just awful!, 5 Feb. 2008
This review is from: Practically Perfect (Paperback)
Rarely do I not finish a book, but this one stumped me. The research was poor and the characters boring beyond belief. People "twinkled" at each other as characterisation and the very thin storyline of an interior designer renovating a cottage was laughable to anyone who actually does that kind of work. If you don't do your research your reader will not believe anything you write so make an effort to learn about something before you hang a plot on it.

5.0 out of 5 stars You can see it happening around you., 1 Nov. 2007
This review is from: Blind Faith (Hardcover)
Ben Elton knows how to spell Zeitgeist, and scare you with it. Not scare you in a schlock horror, many ways to kill you messily way, but scare you in a subtle, oh god I can see this happening around me and its all insane, way.

This is 1984 for the blogging, myspace, Jeremy Kyle generation sharing their hideously banal lives with the world. Its happening all around you and satire that resonates this much probably isn't satire anymore, its too close to the truth.

Global warming may hurt the planet but something so much more insidious will kill its soul.

Read this book, laugh at it, then go and watch tv or make a phone call to a hairdresser or speak to a teenager and be very, very scared.

Sorry for writing a review Ben, Amazon likes us to "share", now I'm off to find the most remote place on the planet to hide.
