He is fed up with the whole subject of how a nineteenth-century priest came to be a millionaire overnight and why he built so many bizarre clues into his church and his home. But when he and his wife decide to drive an old camper van to Spain to start a new life, they can't resist a tiny peek en route at the village that enthralls and captivates so many. Did they make it to Spain and realize their hippy dream of self-sufficiency? Hugo does not say in this book, but the book cover lists Gloucestershire as their current place of residence, and the rain in that plain is not the rain in Spain.
What do they talk about? The book mercifully ends just as that lingo, so fresh-sounding and laughter-inducing most of the way, is beginning to be tiresome. Hugo sums it up on p.
What is Kobo Super Points?
No mystery in that name change, then, if Henry was just a product of his unfriendly times. And he has a plausible explanation for much of it. Things just got out of hand at each step, as the stories invented by the scammers for their own narrow ends were expanded in significance a hundredfold by the Rennie dreamers who filled in the blanks with their own wish-fulfillment, connecting what was never meant to be connected.
Sadly it is not a well written book, and he comes across as living under his fathers shadow, and takes a chapter to put across his feeling on the theory from The Holy Blood and The Holy Grail. There are a few laugh out loud moments, hence why I have given it two stars, but it could have done with a lot more editing. Nov 05, David rated it it was amazing.
Absolutely hilarious! One of the funniest books I've ever read. I'm a huge fan of "Rat Scabies and the Holy Grail" by Christopher Dawes, in which Dawes and punk rock legend Rat Scabies travel southern France on a tongue-in-cheek "quest" for the Holy Grail and spend a week on a coach tour of supposedly holy and esoteric sights with Hugo Soskin and his father, Henry Lincoln. I highly recommend both this book and Da Absolutely hilarious! I highly recommend both this book and Dawes book.

Both are literally laugh-out-loud funny, and they just might ensnare you into reading more and more about the mystery of Rennes-le-Chateau. Jul 07, Juliette Morris Williams rated it really liked it. Hugo's sense of humor really makes this book. Review in one long sentence: A very funny autobiographical story of the life of a cook working for a very lively campground in the shadow of Rennes-le-Chateau. Hugo makes it very clear from the beginning that he does NOT present himself as "Henry Lincoln's son", but as himself.
But the adventures had in and around Rennes le Chateau, whether or not Henry Hugo's sense of humor really makes this book. But the adventures had in and around Rennes le Chateau, whether or not Henry is around, made for a great summer vacation book. Nov 12, Emma rated it did not like it Shelves: dumped.
