I like Robert Rankin's work. Usually. But this rather left me cold, which is a shame, because it shouldn't. It follows the usual Brentford style that he has made his own. Perhaps his problem is that he's become formulaic. Or perhaps this is just a glitch, since I'm sure he's done stuff since which I've liked more.

All in all, not up to his usual standard. Or perhaps it was just the annoying poems at the start of each chapter breaking up the flow.
