I came to this book not really knowing what to expect and was surprised and delighted in equal measure. Fast paced, witty close to the bone and with a cast of wonderful comic characters, Kavenna has managed to create the perfect tale for our straitened times. Satire, comedy - take it as you will, the net result is a compelling and extremely rewarding read, albeit a slightly uncomfortable one if you happen to be a banker or own a second home... I thoroughly recommend it to anyone looking for a book that will entertain and engage this summer.
