This review is from: The Accidental (Paperback)
In my experience 'pretentious' novels tend to be both badly written (elaborate descriptions for example) and make bombastic claims for their characters. I don't think you can characterise this novel as such. I found it well written and was intrigued to find out what would happen next. It's maybe not to everyones taste. Truly not everyone will want to read something which plays around with the conventional structure of a novel. If that's you then avoid otherwise I would recommend this book as I found it funny and moving in turn and it's got a proper satisfying ending.
