Довольно милый развлекательный балаган, непритязательный и с реверансами в сторону Тома Шарпа. Вполне возможно - киносценарий.

I really enjoyed this book! Funny, outrageous and yet quite close to the bone.

This is the first book by Terry Jones that I have read.

I had to read this for book club, it was such a fun quick read that I struggled to put it down.
Its hard to describe this book but all i can say it will have you laughing.
I wish this book was a big book as it would of been nice to get to know the characters more.
What I was concerned about- im not a dog lover but how did Nigel the dog stay with when Malcom went to stay with his sister?

Im looking forward to be reading some more off Terry Jo

Hovering over this Quickreads (45 minutes!) title by Python Terry Jones was the figure of Graham Chapman in army uniform ready to pronounce that this was "Too silly" Which it was (Russian gangsters meet middle class residents association) but affably so. I am not entirely sure I'll share it as intended with my budding urban planner son - Trevor the planning officer describes the problem in a nutshell but he is also shown to be someone who does not know how to look on the bright side of life.

1 Crazy British neighborhood with stock characters (including Hitler lookalike)

1 Head of the Russian Mafia with a great deal of hubris

1 would be concert pianist who works as hit man

Never read anything by Terry Jones before and this taster of his work makes me want to read more. Very comical throughout. Basically a planning application is put forward and people disagree and this leads to a kidnapping and murder.

A planning application leads to murder, kidnapping and a bombing.

This short story is amusing in an absurd way. If like surreal (but slightly believable) stories you’ll probably enjoy this book.

Another of the Galaxy quick reads series - rather strange tale about Russians trying to build new property development.
Oct 31, 2012 Debs rated it it was amazing
For a short story so much was packed in and it was hilarious, proper comedy in all senses. Especially loved the gangsters moll

2.5 stars - A somewhat amusing farcical tale. Preposterous plot but with some funny societal observations.
