There really is an adventure on its way. A nuclear-powered, one hundred-ton adventure with reclining seats and a buffet car. And as it gathers speed and begins to spin out of control, it can only end in one way . . . with a BOOM!

Is this really the same Mark Haddon?
Really disappointing, I'd read and enjoyed Mark Haddon's other two novels and was looking forward to this one.
I know that this is a children's book, that didn't bother me, but this book reads like it is written by an eleven year old, and not an especially bright or imaginative one.
My daughters, 11 and 13, had enjoyed listening to The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time but I didn't even bother playing this to them.
Julian Rhind-Tutt's patronising, over enthusiastic narration reminded me of Terry scott's 'Curly Wurly' adverts from the 70's.
It is hard to believe that this is by the same author who wrote The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time.
