  • "Flann O'Brien's most popular and surrealistic novel concerns an imaginary, hellish village police force and a local murder. Weird, satirical, and very funny, its popularity has suddenly increased after the novel was featured in the 5 October 2005 episode of the hit television series Lost. The series' creators have said that anyone who has read the book "will have a lot more ammunition when dissecting plotlines" of the show. Here it comes to life in a new unabridged recording. Even with Ulysses and Finnegans wake behind him, James Joyce might have been envious" wrote one critic about the work of Flann O'Brien."@en
  • "Told by a narrator who has committed a botched robbery and brutal murder, the novel follows him and his adventures in a two-dimensional police station where he is introduced to "Atomic Theory" and its relation to bicycles, the existence of eternity (which turns out to be just down the road), and the view that the earth is not round but "sausage-shaped.""@en
  • "Within the boundaries of this novel the reader will find a thriller, a comic satire about an archetypal village police force, a vision of eternity, the story of a love affair between a man and his bicycle, and a chilling fable of unending guilt."
