Crap...with no redeeming features....and I paid for this damn book. Breaks the heart!!!

Rankin used to be a good writer but beginning with the Da Da whatever Code he has been turning out crap.

The earlier books really worth your time are 'The Hollow Chocolate Bunnies of the Apocalypse' and 'Brightonomicon' to mention only to...but 'Garden of Unearthly Delights' is another. In these case the narratives, characters, and one-liners were tightly controlled and focused. This is no longer the case...

Necrophenia is better than The DA DA but that isn't saying much.

I will continue to read Rankin but I hope he pulls his sh*t together in the near future because I'm about ready to jump ship.

There have been moments in the past when he had struck gold but unlike Pratchett he has not been going from strength to strength. He needs some new ideas or to take a break and re-think whatever his agenda is.

Recommendation: DO NOT BUY THIS BLOODY TRIPE!!!!!
