"My Aunties Pipe"

This was the first Rankin book I ever read. Although brought to the author by a friend telling me about talking sprouts, I decided to start his books in chronological order. This as it turned out was the best way to start. Included is a fantastic story, which is very funny, well paced, a great to read in short bursts either on the tube or as a way to escape a rainy Sunday. Written in the early eighties, it shares some similarities with the Hitch Hikers Guide. His later books often reference each other and have a lot of running gags, that, unless your already in the know, can leave you feeling a little lost. Fans of Douglas Adams or Terry Pratchett should buy this instantly, a great intro for one of funniest writers around.
