    1 thought on “The Brentford Chainstore Massacre”

    1. My first taste of Robert Rankin's work was the BBC radio adaptation of The Brightonomicon. I found it to be hilarious, so, of course, I went on to read the novel. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and was pleased to find that it was the eighth book in a "trilogy" of nine, and promptly began buying the rest of the series.The Brentford Chainstore Massacre is the fifth book in the series and, in my opinion, the best (chronologically speaking) so far. The writing style that attracted me to the series in The [...]

    2. The first Robert Rankin book I purchased, mainly because of the title and it's amazing cover.In this outing Rankin decides it's time to resurrect Jesus seeing as the new millennium nearly upon us. there is also a love interest for Pooley at long last, poor bloke needed to get some. Complete lunacy as you would expect from Rankin as Brentford come up with a way of celebrating the millennium early and getting some cash from the millennium grant. Fantastic writing with perfect comedic timing.

    3. [Quick review from memory before I re-read and re-review at a later date](Little memory of the plot, though from the rating it must have been a grand one. Polley, O'Malley? Marchant hmm. One of the ones where I learn something new, that's what it feels like.)

    4. If you pulled out the pages that actually were important to the central plot of this short Brentonian outing there wouldn't be many pages in your hand. Fortunately the filler is all Rankin. Plenty of running gags, raunchy gags, pop culture gags and slapstick. Although the story seems somewhat irrelevant it's a short and mostly entertaining ride, easily completed in a few hours.

    5. Another far fetched bookWith a straight ahead plot but a menagerie of convolution Mr Rankin tells a tall tale of Brentford. They're back and Jim and John are up to their eyes again. Cracking read.

    6. 'And the lights upon the allotment,' said Soap, 'what would you take those to be?' 'The work of the council,' said Omally firmly, 'another plot to confound honest golfers.' Soap burst into a paroxysm of laughter. Tears rolled down his pale cheeks and he clutched at his stomach. 'Come now,' said Pooley, 'it is no laughing matter, these lads have it in for us.' 'Have it in for you?' gasped Soap between convulsions. 'You witness a test run of laser-operated gravitational landing beams, the product [...]

    7. Fifth in the Trilogy set around the Characters of Jim Pooley and John Omalley, this book has as much to do with taking all the wild 'Milllennial Madness' and waving it around as something insane and silly as it does back developing the history of Jim & John and why they live in Brentford like their ancestors before them and why weird things happening there often involve them.It's all about there being nothing more powerful than a bad idea whose time has come. and the silliness about the year [...]

    8. Rankin calls this book "The fifth novel in the now legendary Brentford Trilogy" and rightly so: Pooley, O'Malley, The Professor: they are all back and have a ton of adventures. The Lady With The Straw Hat, a new character, seems to have a very important role. (no spoilers here!!!)The difference to the other books in the series is that Rankin unloads every writing style that he "had not tried before" - may it be endless sentences that cover a whole page or the chapter with all of the "F" words: " [...]

    9. Very funny, as usual. I always enjoy these novels. I feel I know the characters so well by now too. This was one of the better ones too, which is saying a lot because they're all good anyway. This ones about Poole and O'Malley attempting to get their hands on a large amount of coin, as they say from the Millennium funding committee, or some such body. Also involved in the shenanigans is a Doctor who clones two boys from the blood of Jesus on the Turin Shroud and yet another attempt to renovate T [...]

    10. This book is a return to Rankin’s original heroes, Jim Pooley and John Omally of Brentford. It’s also a return to the titles that sound cool but don’t directly relate to the plot. The overlapping plots this time around involve a mad doctor who is attempting to clone Jesus, and the discovery that a set of scrolls from the Vatican will allow Brentford to celebrate the millennium a few years early. As might be expected, there’s also a demonic being, this time the head of the Millennial Comm [...]

    11. More from Mr Rankin , that most excellent purveyor of far-fetched fictionThis tome finds us back in Brentford , in the company once again of Jim Pooley & John O'Malley , erstwhile individuals , patrons of The Flying Swan , & untroubled by mere employment. This time the yarn involves the lost days of Brentford , Demons , clones of well, it would spoil it to tell you, & general mayhem . It is , as you'd expect , bloody excellent .

    12. Very amusing book. It seemed somewhat of a cross between Christopher Moore and Jasper Fforde. There were a number of jokes that referred back to the fact that you were reading a novel and commented on the reader's expectations. Despite that, the plot was interesting enough and moved along at a good clip. I would definitely try another of Rankin's books.

    13. While this book is a bit dated(it was released in 1997) this book is a funny, oddball romp that deserves a repeat reading. For fans of such British Humor authors like Douglas Adams and Terry Pratchett

    14. This book has a clever title, and is reasonably well written, but it seems lazy and self-indulgent. We have no real sense that the main character, or indeed Brentford, is in any danger. And all we learn about Brentford is that the author despises it, like Little Whingeing, in JKR's books.

    15. Ranking as bonkers as ever although I must admit this wasn't my favourite of the adventures of messrs Pooley and O'Malley.

    16. Good for a luagh, Rankins books always have surreal orignal wit and clever plot twists. The characters are always likeable without being fleshed out unnecessarly. Good fun

    17. Parts of this were laugh-out-loud funny, and parts of it tried really really hard to be laugh-out-loud funny and just weren't.

    18. The early Rankins are all delightful heart-stoppingly funny and essential comic sci-fi reading with hidden treasures on every page

    19. Rankin's humour is a matter of taste. The book is comic, even mad, but there were times when I didn't find it all that funny.
