Avoid this version - full of typos!!,
This review is from: The Torture Garden (The New Traveller's Companion Series) (Paperback)
This version of the book is dreadful. The text had mistypings on virtually every page, making an already obtuse read a real struggle to get through.
The content itself is difficult to enjoy, being both deliberately unpleasant and meandering. I will give the benefit of the doubt and say that I didn't personally spot any significant insight, skilled allegories or meanings in the story. Indeed the initial few chapters of discussions of the nature of murder left me completely cold and seemed to revel in pointless unpleasantness. I endeavoured to complete the book in the hope of some subtle story arc being resolved but I found none. I bow to any learned literature experts who can find the hidden value in this book.
