Never reviewed a book on Amazon but the last bloke sounds like he has an axe to grind! Hardly fair to comment on a book when you can only manage two chapters.
No idea who popbitch is, so dunno about that. Not read any Douglas adams either.
But this book is brill.
True, you do have to have a certain sense of humour - very dry - think Curb Your Enthusiasm, Withnail. I loved the made-up names and places - some of them are quite clearly piss-takes on real countries which maybe not everyone will get. Real imagination too - if you just want a run-of the-mill plot and background, then no, you would not like this book.
I lent it to some of my mates, one of whom has written a review below - so no, def not publishers!
Take this book on holiday. Take it on the tube. It's a very funny read.
Might be an idea to read more than two chapters though!
