One thought on “Knees Up Mother Earth

  1. D.A. Cairns

    A farcical underdog sporting novel with time travellers, demons and assorted mystical fantasy elements Have you ever read such a beast I just finished Knees Up Mother Earth, and whilst I appreciated the craft of the author and the novelty of the concept, including footnoting which I ve never seen in a work of fiction before, this book did not really do it for me.Of the main characters, Jim the gambler and Neville the barmen were sympathetic, caught as they were in circumstances way beyond their [...]

  2. Joseph Teller

    Another fine book, 7th in the Brentford Trilogy Hard to explain, but in the simplest of terms A Great and Ancient Evil lurks beneath the turf of the Brentford football pitch and someone wants to let it out But before they can they must face the lads of Brentford on and off the field in battle This tale borders on the epic, and features most of the cast of the other books in the trilogy plus some of the stars of the books that are fictional in the universe of the trilogy An apocalypse brings out [...]

  3. Dan

    Pooley and O Malley, of The Flying Swan Pub, must do all they can to save Brentford s football grounds from being demolished And that may just mean coaching the local team into winning it all That is, unless the ancient evil which hides in Brentford decides to have some fun too.

  4. Noel G

    Top quality toot Fans of the author will love and those unaccustomed to Rankin s drawl may be confused and slightly scared by his style But so worth it I would rec Rankin to anyone.

  5. Geoff Battle

    So, book seven in the Brentford trilogy eh What Rankin does with Knees Up is very clever He uses the same characters, the same plot Brentonians to stop Armageddon and a lot of the same gags that are present in many of the previous books There s certainly a whole load of deja vu and it s all good The scenario of football is cleverly woven in to the Brentford mythology and creates a raft of new options for Rankin s masterful use of humour, running gags, insightful use of language and even some sus [...]

  6. Nishtha Bhasin

    Brentford United F.C need to win the FA Cup they lifted the cup once upon a time, in 1920 in order to save their home ground from the forces of evil trying to awaken the Serpent the ground was supposedly the site for the Garden of Eden , and ultimately, save Mother Earth.Yes, it is as insane as it sounds Effortlessly hilarious and refreshing, this cosmic cracker of a tale with soccer sweet spots is one of the finest works of Rankin From demonic species to time travelers, all fit into this world [...]

  7. Nathan Dehoff

    This book returns to Brentford, the London suburb where Rankin grew up, which in his fiction is frequently home to mystical happenings A local consortium is trying to purchase their football ground, which causes a bit of consternation even though hardly any of the locals have attended a match It turns out that, as established in an earlier book, Brentford was the site of the Garden of Eden and the Serpent is buried under the ground The only way to prevent the purchase is for the team to win the [...]

    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 [...]

  9. Alan Smith

    Robert Rankin is weird Robert Rankin is crazy Robert Rankin is what The DaVinci Code would have been like if the Monty Python team had edited it In short, Robert Rankin is hilarious.You can pick any of his books all of which deal with funny, weirdly cosmic goings on, and how they affect the London suburb of Brentford and be sure of enjoyable reading In this one, Pooley and O Malley, stalwarts of the Flying Swan pub have to find a way to save Brentford football ground from the usual nameless horr [...]

  10. Isabel (kittiwake)

    The 7th book in the Brentford Trilogy and the second book in the Witches of Chiswick Trilogy When Norman Hartnell of the paper shop collects a large amount of computer spare parts and builds himself a strangely Victorian looking computer, it starts a string of events involving a buried serpent, Pooley becoming manager of Brentford football team with Omalley as his PA , H.G Wells and his Time Machine, and yet another evil corporation based in a pitch black building I m not sure that it made much [...]

  11. Debumere

    This was hilarious Absolutely bonkers and extremely entertaining Brentford Football Club is, possibly, the worse football team in the world and they need to win the FA cup to stop the apocalypse The Brentford series by Robert Rankin is fantastic Humorous and wildly imaginative Throughly recommend.

  12. John Rhodes

    Well I am not a football fan but, true to most Rankin books, it is not a rerequesite I m still getting lost with the Hugo Rune threads but I suspect and please fellow Rankin fans tell me if I m wrong that there may well be a few missing links or ilogical plot devices here or there in this Enway I still enjoyd it muchly

  13. Scott

    A humorous mixture of sporting underdogs and fantasy battle between good and evil Great mix of characters and witty dialogue, plus some nods to well loved sci fi movies Very enjoyable read, even if like myself, you ve never read any of the other Brentford Trilogy books.

  14. Eden

    Oh, this book was a HOOT Again, I reviewed this on my alternate blog, but really why not pick it up yourself It s a lot of fun.

  15. Helle

    I doubted between 3 and 4 stars, as again humor tends to get in the way of the story But all in all, I hugely enjoyed Knees Up, Mother Earth and ended up feeling really good about the whole book.

  16. Plato

    There were some jolly chuckles Similarities between this footie tale and Jasper Fforde s lacrosse on in Something Rotten
