Further adventures (how many more ways can I phrase this?) in the Italian branch of the 163x universe. The general tone is much the same as the last Flint/Dennis book; there's a lot of humour, particularly any of the bits involving Rui. I do wonder what fraction of readers would spot the Fawlty Towers parody, although it made me laugh out loud...

I think this series is going to stay consistently good -- again, it's not going to be making it to GCSE English curricula any time soon, but it's a pleasant way of spending an evening.
