Well written and enjoyable,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Life and Soul of the Party (Paperback)
I haven't read any Mike Gayle books for a while (I forget why!) but something attracted me back to his writing and I ordered his last few books from Amazon. I started reading this novel at 4pm on a Sunday afternoon and had to read it all in one sitting as i just could not put it down. I did feel that having the 6 narrators was confusing at first, but soon got used to it. I felt that I knew the characters, and the themes in the novel strongly resonated with me and my group of friends, who are of a similar age to those in the novel. I don't agree with other reviewers that the female characters were not well drawn, I think that all of the characters were brilliantly written, even the minor characters. I will definitely read more of Mike Gayle's novels.
