Ben Elton follows on in the tradition of Tom Sharpe. A rollicking good read with mockery of PC on every page. Dave (who does law and shit)

I enjoyed the history of electromagnetic and the physics behind it as described by a non scientist. the read got a bit labourous later and needs accompanying diagrams. But the last chapters jolted me back to a riveting read in describing effects on the earth, us and all life if the pole change begins!

brilliant stories and narration!

i dont know how many times Fry made me laugh out loud as i sat in a train or walked along the road. the accents...Welsh, Scots, yorkshire to name a few...were brilliant. cant wait for the next book on the Trojans.
