    1. This is completely daft but good fun' although not as good as his earlier books set on the islands - Whisky Galore and Rockets Galore. Mackenzie was really good at writing the various dialects ranging from the south of England to the Highlands and Islands.


    2. A bit of a slog. Not nearly as funny as The Monarch of the Glen, but I stuck with it because it looked like he was setting up an interesting ending. Unfortunately, no.


    3. Not as funny as the first two books but I can see where the show "Monarch of the Glen" got a lot of it's structure from and character humor.


    4. Monsters, flying saucers shaped like teapots, brilliant Hebridean summer nights, cranky lairds and a timid young palaeontologist - what more could you wish for?


    5. Not quite as side-splittingly funny as Waugh or Wodehouse, but great fun. Now to read Monarch of the Glen and Whisky Galore!
