• Funny and squirmingly vivid

    Daily Telegraph
  • There aren’t many travel writers funnier than Tim Moore

    Independent on Sunday
  • A fine piece of comic the end of the book he is, unlike his Maestro, firing on all cylinders

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

  • Hilarious

  • 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
