Customer Review

on 22 March 2011
This is truly a masterpiece. At points I had to restrict my burgeoning semi from bursting into a fully fledged wife-botherer. Yannes' gentle introduction to the world of niche Nazi cutlery has the skilfully written veneer of an expert, nay a genius, who clearly has too much time on his hands and little, if any, actual human contact. Indeed, the author's tempestuous soul is reflected in his work, shining through with descriptions of spoons which are of such intricacy and beauty that I am left shocked and appalled that the tome has yet to stand proudly on every bookshelf in the land.

If you are bored of train-spotting and desperately searching for the next pointless past-time to fill the massive expanse of time before you crawl cold and alone into your final and welcome breaths then this is the book for you.

Alas I must end on a tiny gripe which justifies my unfortunate award of four stars to Mr Yannes. The sole criticism one can find to inflict upon this work would be that it is too short for any true Asperger's sufferer to fully enjoy.

Otherwise a pleasant read and I wait with anticipation for the sequels (known by true fans simply as Forks and Knives) which cannot come soon enough. Please contact the History Channel and beg them to commission a television serialisation.
