3.0 out of 5 stars Long may you rise Mr Perrin, 16 April 2009
This review is from: The Fall and Rise of Reginald Perrin (Paperback)
Having seen snippets of this series on TV, I was keen to read the book before getting the DVD to compare. This was billed in Esquire magazine as one of thier top 50 funniest books.David Nobbs is clearly a gifted writer but I'm not sure how to compare him to others that feature in that list. The book READS as a little dated but perhaps thats because you know it is set in the 1970's. Is he as funny as Bill Bryson ? No BUT Mr Bryson has had some dud's. The Lost Continent being my favourite read of all. Reggie is any easy read and it is engaging and entertaining so I won't nitpick - and what a twist at the end !
