'The Toyminator' is still not Rankin's strongest book but it has the great central premise that has been missing from his recent title such as 'Knees Up Mother Earth' - how come there are so many chickens? If each restaurant sells chickens a day as well as eggs that's potential chickens/5(29). 'The Toyminator' looks into this strange problem in a hilarious manner. I loved the characters of Eddie and Jack and felt that Rankin has reeled in some of his overindulgences this time. I recommend this book to his fans but still advise new readers to read something like 'Apocolypso' or 'Snuff Fiction' first/5(29).

If an item is subject to sales tax, in accordance with state tax laws, the tax is generally calculated on the total selling price of each individual item, including shipping and handling charges, gift-wrap charges and other service charges, less any applicable discounts. A gleefully mad collision between self-referential movie script and gumshoe noir/alien-abduction parody that mostly defies synopsis.
