Customer Review

on 19 January 2003
This is the first Robert Rankin novel I have read, and I have to say it was different from anything else I've ever read before.
I've avoided Rankins books before, thinking they sounded too silly and surrealistic for my tastes. However, while The Hollow Chocolate Bunnies of the Apocalypse certainly is bizzare, it is also a very interresting and entertaining read. It is a murder mystery set in a fantasy universe, with elements of comedy, horror and fairy tales.
The language is simple, as other reviewers have mentioned, but this in my opinion is not a bad thing. You almost feel as though you are reading a childrens book, a young childrens book even, and then Rankin hits you in the face with a horribly graphic murder or severly adult themes. The book at times has that disturbing feel of the nightmares you have as a child; the monsters under the bed are real, and that scary, ugly old toy really IS alive...
I reccomend this book to anyone seeking a different kind of reading experience, even if you are not a fan of fantasy or other speculative fiction. Personally, I will certainly be looking into other works by Rankin.
