Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. So far, 3 books written by Toby Frost:

    1, Space Captain Smith
    2, The God Emperor of Didcott
    3, Wrath of the Lemmingmen

    Found them to be bloody funny books. Typically British sense of humor with a mick take of Colonial society :) In the best fashion of the mighty Flashman Novels.

    Well worth the read
     
  2. Yup, read the first - tres droll!
     
  3. I read the first book a while ago. Although many parts were funny, I did think he was trying a bit to hard to out-parody Douglas Adams/Terry pratchett.
    Months later I bought the 2nd book - forgetting my feelings for the 1st and once again there were good bits but lots of mediocrity
    Didn't bother with the 3rd
