love it or loath it?,
This review is from: Contract (Paperback)
It seems this book falls into the love it or loath it category.
I'm afraid that I found the author's voice - which runs very heavily throughout - insufferably smug, way over convinced by its own cleverness and grindingly repetitive.
It also seems that the author feels the need to childishly CAPITALIZE swear words he's particularly pleased with, which makes for embarrassing reading if you're on a packed tube.
The whole affair reads like a six-former attempting to write a Michael Marshall Smith novel. I would suggest reading just about any of his instead.
Judging by the other customer reviews, which I now find baffling, I must be wrong - still I would suggest reading a couple of pages before purchasing to make sure it's for you.
Absolutely top cover design though.
Right, I'm off to clean my palette. Some Jane Austen maybe?
