Scepticism Inc deservces 4 stars for originality, although perhaps only 3 for the prose itself.

Narrated by a newly agnostic shopping trolley it describes the lunancies of organised religion that are exposed by the establishment of a worldwide chain of metaphysical betting shops that nearly bankrupt the world's churches.

The outlandish plot is simply relayed (well, what else do you expect from a shopping trolley), and where it succeeds in accessibility it feels somewhat lacking in depth once the basic premise is revealed.

Nevertheless, a hugely original book that deservces its cult status. And it's only short (just what I needed after ploughing through Andrew Marr's History of Modern Briatain previously).
