Review:

Very probably the funniest book ever written

(Sunday Times)

Screamingly funny and wildly subversive (Marian Keyes Guardian)

Delicious ... Cold Comfort Farm has the sunniness of a P. G. Wodehouse and the comic aplomb of Evelyn Waugh's Scoop' (Independent)

One of the finest parodies written in English...a wickedly brilliant skit (Robert Macfarlane Guardian)
