More About the Author
‘A stylist of considerable talent…Holiday in a Coma reminds me of early Martin Amis - specifically the torture-filled, drug-riddled Dead Babies…In its subtle way, Love Last Three Years is just as artful as its predecessor. Narrated in the first person, Marc's candid description of being in love is so fresh that we almost feel his roiling emotions first hand. This is a difficult trick to pull off, but Beigbeder manages it magnificently.' Daily Telegraph
Praise for ‘Windows on the World’:
‘Thoughtful, self-deprecating, despairing, funny, infuriating and moving, while never undercutting or cheapening the horror of the doomed family.' Daily Telegraph
‘Powerful…the combination of banality and panic is quietly devastating. Affecting and disconcerting.’ Financial Times

So despite, that the prelude of the book is excellent I think it is very much solo of attitude and perception wrapped in bitter cynicism...
But just for this reason I guess I would recommend this story to anybody to read.
Holiday in a coma - for me was really pointless, I read it but it was more like `I must do it' as I had a book, rather than `I forgot the entire world as I went to live to a book'. Did not like this part...sorry...
