Tom Holt

Normally I put quotes from books I read onto my book review blog but this one was so great I had to share it with readers of Rambles from my Chair. It comes from Tom Holt's "Grailblazers":-

“...a real kangaroo... was bounding happily along, its mind occupied with the one great mystery which obsesses the consciousness of the species; to the extent that it has stopped them dead in their evolutionary tracks and prevented them from developing into the hyper-intelligent super-lifeforms they would otherwise have become. Namely; how come, no matter how careful you are about what you put in your pockets, in the end you always find two paperclips, a fluff-covered boiled sweet and a small, worthless copper coin at the bottom of them.”
