A very funny piece of sci-fi. Satirising science, slavery. Lampooning every nationality in the process. Justifiably one of the new additions to the 1001 books you must read before you die.

Arrived today. Thanks Dave, it does look very interesting. I'm planning on getting stuck into it tonight.

Well, what a bizarre little book that was! Not that that's a bad thing. I do like books that are a bit different.

This one had me smiling at some of the satire but in places I found it quite disturbing, mostly related to the treatment of the newts.

Thanks for sharing the book Dave. I have Wigglywood's address so I'll get it in the post asap.

Posting off to jellyfish67 tomorrow. Thanks for the opportunity to read Dave. I struggled to get into this book but once underway thought it was well worth the read - although rather disturbing.

Finally on it's way to the next reader, sorry for the delay. When I finally got around to reading this I found it extremely hard going and it took me ages to read.

Received from jellyfish67 this past week. It looks like it's going to be a very interesting read. Thank you!
