The farce kicked off pretty early on about 100 pages in The master mind behind the action is Lord Petrefact who is loathed by all and sundry with very good reason One of my favourite seuences in the novel involves a mechanised Victorian bath a professor and a runaway wheelchair In many ways it reminded me of Pratchett without the fantasy elementThe tag line on the front cover describes the novel as savage and it is just that I couldn t help but feel immense pity for Professor Yapp who is sucked into Lord Petrefact s machinations in the most awful waySharpe writes from the perspective that life is cruel and always will be He does this by visiting dreadful conseuences on Yapp for his involvement in Lord Petrefact s machinations then uses Emmelia Petrefact s character to ram the point homeIf you like cynical sharp witty and insightful writing then I recommend you read this Sharpe has been on my reading list for years and I m glad I ve finally got round to him Now I ve got him in my system I doubt I ll be able to get him out

After a uiet start this develops into a brilliant satyrical farce on the higher education of the time and on business There s some great dark humour a dash of dark slapstick and a chunk of insight Times have changed and this is a book of its time but I still really enjoyed it Tom Sharpe is a master of taking the mickey
