Satire at its best, 23 July 2003
I found this the most compelling of Brookmyre's books. The dialogue was sharp, humourous and realistic. Furthermore, the character development was superb as his is trademark. And, above all, it was very very funny.
Granted, the plot was unrealistic. But, on the other hand, this is, like his others, a satirical novel so this is not completely surprising. And in any case, the fast-moving and engaging writing style more than compensated for this.
Overall, a hugely enjoyable read.
