Book synopsis (The back of the book says)
The sun rises late, dirty and so badly in need of a service it's a wonder it gets up at all. The moon's going to be scrapped soon and a new one commisioned - but then, they've been saying that for years...Unfortunatly, I never scribbled down what I thought about the book. But I did enjoy the book, it's Tom Holts' first humourous science fiction-novel, and is really amusing.
This book has also been translated to German.

Quotes from Here Comes the Sun
"How many spectral warriors does it take to change a light-bulb?
The girl curtseyed again and danced off down the hill, leaving Bjorn alone at last with the trees, the birds, the squirrels and his ingrowing toenail. For a while he stood and looked aimlessy about him, until his eye lit on one tree that he recognized. It was a tall, ancient oak and he remembered it well; he had climbed it as a boy, and his grandfather had often lifted him up into its branches, pointing out to him all the marvellous things he could see. How wonderful it is, his grandfather used to say, to sit in a high tree and look out over all kingdoms of the world, as if one were God's own eyes!
