Présentation de l'éditeur

Foul Rock is a tiny speck only seventy meters wide and one hundred and forty meters long, just off the coast of England.

When he first sets foot on his inheritance, Albert quickly realises that there is absolutely nothing there, nothing except for the frequent presence of Victoria, a very attractive young girl in search of a suntan.

Just as the two are getting to know each other better, a Russian trawler (spy ship) runs aground on the Island.

The other side of the Island is soon occupied by the United States Marines and Victoria and Albert find themselves caught up in a precarious and hilarious Cold War stand off.

And to My Nephew Albert...is a classic satire from the author(s) of The Great Dinosaur Robbery and After Me, The Deluge.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 And now the island is being offered for sale... 8 janvier 2007
Par Ketil Albertsen - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
This book is completely crazy! Absurd, funny as hell. (And if you are able to stop laughing for a moment: It is certainly not without sting.)

Today's news (Jan 8th, 2007) made it even funnier: I had no idea that the story of Foul Rock was directly inspired by reality! And now it is up for sale...

The "real" Foul Rock's name is Sealand, located outside the coast of England (although not in the same waters as the fictional Foul Rock). It was founded as a "nation" in 1967, attacked in 1968 - and the book about Foul Rock was published in 1969. There should be no doubt about the source of inspiration!

Now, there are two points worth mentioning: Readers too young to know anything about the Cold War will miss out on a lot of the humour. And, you should be rather familiar with the English language to understand all the word play.

I first read this book in a Norwegian translation. Several times, the only way to see the humour was to back-translate to English to discover the word play. Still I miss out some humour because I am not that familiar with British culture (e.g. the way the various British papers present the news - I guess that you have to know those papers to see the humour), but there's more than enough of it to make you laugh your way through this book anyway.

I beg for a reprint of this book - the day it is published, I'll buy about a dozen copies for use as gifts to selected friends.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Who would've known I'd go looking for that island?? 14 avril 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com

In a VERY small town, Culdesac, Idaho, a book mobile would travel to us once a week. There I found this little treasure one summer so many years ago, I can't remember! I never forgot the title, or laughing out loud! So here I am, married to someone from the region, enjoying our own type of island life there now and then, and remembering the title. Looking for a copy for my 13 year old son, who is in Greece as I write on a study tour. This book is right up his alley, and along the lines of his humor! Would love to share it with him if I could get my hands on a copy. Anyone willing to part with one can email me if Amazon can't find it!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 If you love to laugh you wont be sorry you chose this one! 26 juin 1999

A hilarious story suitable for young teens of either sex and those who are still young at heart. A cold war romance set on an island off the coast of England. Also a possible world record winner for 'longest book title in the world'. I enjoyed it immensly when it was first published and am now looking for a copy to give to my boys. (after I've read it again.)

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Probably the funniest book I have ever read 12 août 1998
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com

This is a delightful book in which each character brings his contribution to an overall situation which is consistently funny. There are hundreds of little vignettes or quips which bring all characters to life, and they are all lovable too: not a single villain (but quite a few nuts!). It is Numero Uno in my Funnies section!

Do you want to have a permanent smile on your face? Just read this book.
It would be great to see the book re-printed.
