Publisher's Summary

A gloriously mad desert island romp - complete with zombies, walrus pirates and a talking goldfish called Albie.
Like Robinson Crusoe on acid, it follows the adventures of Isaac, a shipwrecked sailor whose boat is sunk by a excess of radio sound effects and is then washed up in a tropical paradise where warring tribes compete to pay homage to a giant Sea beast called Gary.
A fast-paced gag fest which is a splendid mix of music hall and surreal nonsense, which is fresh, intriguing and laugh-out-loud funny.

Slightly reminiscent of Hitchhiker's Guide, but not quite in that league. Made me chuckle in a few places, but mostly groan throughout the listening.

What was this supposed to be?

Would you try another book from Dewi Llywelyn and/or the narrators?

The narrators, maybe. Dewi Llywelyn, no.

What was most disappointing about Dewi Llywelyn’s story?

It wasn't least bit funny or engaging. Sounded like an attempt by a seven-year-old to channel Monty Python or Douglas Adams where only every fiftieth word came through.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of the narrators?

No one different. They just had awful material to work with.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?


Any additional comments?

It was an attempt at something, I just don't know what.
