I don't know if I'm being fair with only 4 stars as i did really enjoy this book. However, having read all of Danny Wallace's previous books and loved them all this wasn't quite to the same laugh out loud standard. It was an easy read and easily identifiable as a Danny Wallace book through his humour, maybe I was just expecting too much having waited so long for him to write a new book. Would still recommend to friends, but would recommend 'yes man' and 'join me' over this novel. I will buy his next book but fingers crossed he returns to writing about personal adventures!!
