This book is as hilarious as the first one, not as big, but the quality doesn't suffer. In one great story, Herman forgets his gun when leaving the train. Let me just explain here that guns aren't as common in the Netherlands as in some other countries. Hardly anybody has one. You need to register and have a really good explanation to have one. In Herman's case, the reason is easy: he is Herman. So at the train station he just tells the staff what happened, they immediately make contact and explain the staff on the train where it is (on the hook where normal people would put their coat), who in turn promise to send it back as soon as possible to the previous station.
Another classic is the opening page, where Chabot comes to pick up Brood for a visit to Belgium. He asks him if he has read the first part of the biography. Brood had. Did he like it? The answer is a classic: "Some parts seemed familiar to me". Rock 'n roll junkie Herman Brood is a hero. I can't wait for the third part.
