Customer Review

on 30 May 2012
The Notable Brain of Maximilian Ponder has made me ponder many things. Could someone really catalogue their own brain? Could a friendship be so strong that someone would do as Adam for three decades? Is it really possible to swallow a fifty pence peace? I shall follow the authors sage advice and not try any of these things at home.

This book is thought provoking, yet hugely entertaining. It takes the reader on a journey through colonial Africa, to the boarding schools of England, to the home counties. It does so in such a way that you do not want to put it down, forever curious about what the next eccentric recollection will be. The book is charmingly British, which is a nice tonic for those of us away from Blighty. My only sadness was on finishing, I wish there was a further 400 pages. I shall await the author's follow up with bated breath.
