The plot is a marvel of ingenuity and makes most detective stories look primitive by comparison
*John Brophy*

A fine satire, filled with humorous incidents and much subtle philosophy. It is for intelligent, open-minded people with a sense of humour
*Yorkshire Post*

The author has a wonderful eye for village types, and the village of Clochemerle is built up for us as a shining and integrated whole - he has chosen to employ his great talents in describing a series of people, episoded and conversations that are ribald, exaggerated and bizarre. I must confess that its rollicking grossness pleased me
*Howard Spring*

A full-blooded uproarious farce in the Rabelaisian tradition
*Times Literary Supplement*
