So, here's a funny story...,
This review is from: Fortunately, the Milk . . . (Hardcover)
Yesterday, I was on my way home from work. I'd finished early, having only had a half-day shift on Wednesday, and decided to meet up with some of my younger friends who had just this week began University.
As I walked into the student area of town, I found myself passing by the bookshop and seen the book sitting there, all very shiny and glistening. "Oh," I said, "Neil's got a new book out. That was quick." Then I bought it.
When I got to the student pub, it was full of half-drunk students and, as the only employed adult in the pub, it took me a while to find my friends. When I did, they asked me what was in my bookshop bag. I showed them the book, and before long, I wound up reading it to them.
More and more students began to gather around and listen.
Before too long, I was reading the entire story aloud to about twenty semi-intoxicated freshers, who would cheer along to the volcano god Splod and laugh at the vunderful wumpires. And sang their own dinosaur songs.
It was a very weird lunch....
So yeah, not just a book for kids. A book for crazy students with too much time on their hands, too.

Now that is a good review, and as Neil has just tweeted about it, I expect your helpful votes will go through the roof!
