Quirky but irritating,
This review is from: Terms & Conditions (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Frank awakes after having been in a coma following a serious car accident. He doesn’t know who he is, or who the people around him are. He recognises nobody. It eventually becomes apparent that he is married, that he is a lawyer and that he works for his brother’s law firm, specialising in the small print nobody reads. Along with his loss of memory Frank seems to have lost some of his inhibitions and becomes quite childish and childlike.
On the face of it this appears to be a really quirky little book, written as though in imitation of a legal document with “terms and conditions” written in footnotes. This, apart from being physically difficult to read as these footnotes are SO tiny, becomes tiresome to the point of tedium. Whilst the idea behind the book is good, and it’s quite well written, I just couldn’t get on with it; although quite funny at times, I could not relate to any of the characters. I’m afraid for me this is a middle-of-the road read and not one I will go back to.
