The Big AH-CHOO,
This review is from: Snuff Fiction (Paperback)
Fantastic stuff! "Snuff Fiction" is one of Rankin's best, a pseudo-memoir written in 2008 about the life of the Doveston, purveyor of the world's best tobacco (and explosives).
While all Rankin's books are funny, this one's storytelling lifts it above the rest. All too often Rankin drops plot threads and writes (intentionally) dense prose. "Snuff Fiction" has his trademark hyper-kinetic writing style while, for once, admirably wrapping everything up at the end. It's a great balance of clever storytelling, some effectively disturbing passages, and overall a lot of laughs.
"Snuff Fiction" is well worth purchasing, even with the extra costs for shipping to the States. Here's hoping Rankin finds a U.S. publisher some day!
