    Nick Lezard, Guardian
  • "A pilgrimage to the most derelict, unlovable and forlorn parts of Britain"

    Independent
  • "Hilarious"

    Sun
  • "There's a true affection in the descriptions of bypasses, roundabouts and rainy caravan parks"

    Tom Cox, Daily Mail
  • "Moore is...a likeable guide and a witty turner of phrases, and his plunges into local history as he tootles around in his decrepit Austin Maestro demonstrate a gift for bathos and an eye for the poetry of dereliction"

    Euan Ferguson, Time Out
  • "Moore has a nice line in description...and is able to describe the many absurdities encountered on his travels with admirable detachment"

    Choice Magazine
  • "Hilarious... This book will have you in stitches... What emerges is a nostalgic celebration of just how mad Britain can be (5 stars)"

    Hannah Britt, Daily Express
  • "Tim Moore's wry portraits of unfashionable British towns nicely combine knockabout humour, witty one-liners and an undertow of sadness"

    Sally Cousins, Sunday Telegraph
