      Hilarious! I discovered Guy's work thanks to his sitcom on Radio 4, 'Weak at the Top'. This semi-autobiographical book is just so funny, I re-read a chapter when I need cheering up. The story about the school ski trip makes me laugh so hard I can't breathe.I'm also addicted to maps, so the premise drew me in from the start.

      This was a fast, light, funny book. I bought it for the map illustrations, which I enjoyed, and I laughed enough to keep reading. Just OK though, but good for a fast, summer read.

      Funny in parts but ultimately forgettable. It's saving grace was it's geekiness, I love me some maps.

    4. Alison on said:

      Really comical read - tales about his childhood like the school skiing trip, etc. are really priceless!
