They humorously chronicle the lives of a couple of drunken middle-aged layabouts, Jim Pooley and John Omally, who confront the forces of darkness in the environs of West London, usually with the assistance of large quantities of beer from their favourite public house, The Flying Swan. The novels in this series are as follows: The Antipope (1981) – Pooley and Omally take on the resurrected Pope Alexander VI, the last Borgia pope.

So, book seven in the Brentford trilogy eh? What Rankin does with Knees Up is very clever. Robert Rankin is an unrepentant Luddite who writes his bestselling novels by hand in exercise books. He lives with his wife in Brighton. Библиографические данные. He uses the same characters, the same plot (Brentonians to stop Armageddon) and a lot of the same gags that.

Knees Up Mother Earth Robert Rankin ForJo FletcherWith love and laughs1 It was only yesterday and the weather, it seemed, was good. Mahatma Campbell put his best foot forward. This foot, the left, was bandaged somewhat about the second toe and encased within an argyle sock, darned at the heel by the mother who loved him. Foot and bandage, sock and what-have-you lurked within a boot of the seven-league persuasion. Читать онлайн Knees Up Mother Earth. Knees Up Mother Earth.

Knees up Mother Earth. Knees Up Mother Earth concerns the forces of darkness and their attempts to gain control of Brentford football (soccer) ground, so they can bring about Apocalypse.

Knees Up Mother Earth Robert Rankin. The time was six-fifteen of the early morning clock, the day was a Wednesday, bright and sunny, but with that ever-present fear of precipitation the Campbell had come to live with. The month was that nippy one known as November.

The borough had never known such celebrations. Well, at least not since the last time that Brentford had won the FA Cup, way back in 1928. Big Bob Charker, having listened to the second half. of the match upon his cab radio, returned to Wembley with haste after dropping off the desolate circus performers. And now he proudly drove his big bus through the bunting-hung and all-gone-mad streets of Brentford, with Brentford’s winning team waving from the open top deck. And Jim Pooley clinging to the cup. They did it, called Jim to John.

Magic, time travel and football, not exactly your everyday combination - but the fate of mankind hangs upon the result. The Sprouts of Wrath (The Brentford Trilogy Book 4).

Developers are planning to destroy Brentford's beloved football grounds. Something must be done, and the lads of The Flying Swan, Brentford’s celebrated drinking house, take up the challenge. Norman has recently discovered a Victorian computer that holds the secrets of the super-technology of a bygone age, and Archroy, Brentford’s lone explorer, has just returned from his seventh voyage, bringing with him the fabled Golden Fleece. Surely, with these stalwarts working for the cause, the field is as good as saved. But this is Brentford, and the ancient forces of evil—Old Testament horrors, beasties from the bottomless pit, that sort of evil—are stirring.

More Brentford craziness complements of our favorite layabouts John Vincent Omally and James Arbuthnot Pooley. Once again John and Jim need to battle the darkest forces of evil, whilst attempting to lead the Brentford United soccer team to their first championship since the 1920's. If they win, they save the world. If they lose, there will be apocalyptic consequences. All of the regulars , semi-regulars and quite irregulars are here. This list includes Neville, Old Pete, Small Dave, Norman, Professor Slocombe, Archroy, a lady in a straw hat, a casual observer, HG Wells and Cthulhu. This book starts off a bit slow but once it gets going, it's the stuff of epics. This book is labeled book 7 of the Brentford Trilogy as well as being the sequel to an equally good book: The Witches of Chiswick. Honestly you could probably dive right in with this one and not be any more lost than the rest of us... However if you are a purest, start your journey here The Antipope (Brentford Trilogy) and you will be at the very beginning. If that is your choice- when you finally read this one, be sure to let me know what you think. 4/5

As with all of Rankin's book it's damn funny and keeps me riveted from start to finish sometimes getting in the way of sleep as you just have to read "one more page..."

Having been a soccer fan this book is quiet beliveable in that why would some obscure team reach the dizzy hieghts of FA glory only if they had the devils luck.His books is peppered with characters who we either love or laugh along at the absurb plots, although most of his books follow the same formula they are immensely funny and entertaing.Can't wait for my next purchase.

I only have one gripe with this book! The Campbell's a good guy!?! I'm a MacDonald! Surely this must have been a typo by Mr Rankin?

Aside from that, tis good, fun filled frivolity, copious in-jokes, straw hatted ladies, deamons threatening the Large drinking residents of Brentford with only O'Mally n Pooley to save them, with a little help from an aged Professor, H G Wells, the wisdom of Rune,and not to mention a sprout named Barry.. you get the idea.

Cthulhu has a cameo role too, which pleased me, as last i heard he'd taken to hiding in phoneboxes and dialing up people at odd hours of the day! Nothing like a bit of taking over the world to get you back on track!

All in all, tis a good read indeed, and well worth adding to your Rankin collection. If your new to Rankin, imagine Tom Sharpe with Ben Elton, then think of the combined creature being very drunk! Thats the spirit! You know theres wit, satire, politics, and crudity, it may give you a bad head, and perhaps mother would not approve... but, you know you want it anyway!

Enjoy!

This is a wacky romp through the underbelly of British Football along with other creatures from the less savory dimensions. The heroes are ordinary. The situation is bizarre. The writing is irreverant, and the book is a delight. This was my first meeting with Mr. Rankin's work, but it will not be my last.

Knees Up Mother Earth concerns the forces of darkness and their attempts to gain control of Brentford football (soccer) ground, so they can bring about Apocalypse. Only two professional layabouts can save the world, by getting Brentford to win the FA cup. This is near-impossible, but the forces of darkness aren't about to let it happen. Then things get complicated, when all sorts of strangeness appears...

Rankin likes in-jokes, wordplay, and general silliness, but it's not comedy, more sly humour. This isn't as good as some of his books, but it's not bad. It's a good break from more serious reading.

This is the seventh in the Brentford trilogy and the second in the Witches of Chiswick of Trilogy, and though it's not necessary to have read either (you'll pick it up quickly enough) I recommend having read the Witches of Chiswick first.

All the old characters come back for a good one. Read the early books first, but don't miss this one.
