This sort of reminded me of all those cult classics which I just couldn't get in to. Maybe it's the British humor thing, I just don't find it funny. Anyway this was a miss for me and I won't be continuing this horrifyingly long series. I found the two main character unlikable and I was totally indifferent to their plight. It was very disjointed with no real substance jumping from scene to scene with absolutely zero lead in. Just too disorganized for my tastes. As a matter of fact I finally gave up 150 pages into the 210 page book. I just couldn't stand it any longer.
