Attack of the unsinkable rubber ducks

The new Christopher Brookmyre novel, Attack of the Unsinkable Rubber Ducks, is top fun. Unless you’re into psychics or Intelligent Design.

I’m ashamed to admit I got the geeky in-joke on page 124 immediately.

  1. Ah, thanks for the reminder. Note to self: Go spend some money and order the book asap. Then check page 124.

  2. Started it on the bus into work this morning. First thought: “No newspaper would serialise that”.

    Oh, absolutely. But you don’t buy Brookmyres for realism.

  4. Jesus, if your don’t pick up on everything as it happens…

    A lot of it is DiVinci clunk

  5. What with all the Brookmyre recommendations, I recently read All Fun And Games Until Somebody Loses An Eye. If you take all the best bits of the book, add them together, and multiply by a zillion, it’s still nowhere near as good as the title. Seriously, the writing was so bad I was actually embarassed on the author’s behalf. What the hell is all the fuss about?

  6. Heh-heh. That’s one of his better written ones, too.
