The use of Simon Jones as the narrator goes some way to making this work and feel like a familiar pair of slippers all be it slippers that were bought by your old maiden aunt in Winnipeg and have been languishing unloved in the bottom of your wardrobe for 17 years. I can't help but believe that Douglas would have felt a little cheated as he clearly wished to lighten the despair that for personal reasons dominated 'Mostly Harmless' and this simply doesn't, early promise seems to falter towards the end of the book and it feels like this became an ever increasing challenge for Eoin as the book progressed. What it does do is leave things open for next book!? Could this become an annual event with a new writer each time, after all Eoin Colfer has already ruled himself out.
