Definitely an eye opener,
This review is from: Rogue Trader (Paperback)
I was stuck in an airport lounge with a delayed flight and a teeny bookshop, so I picked up this, thinking "aha! smug city twat has a miserable time! I'll enjoy this!" In fact, the honesty and sheer guilt of the book completely turned me around. When the SFO won't let him do his sentence in England to save EMBARRASSMENT, it's even tragic- particularly, too, the homages to his wife, who of course subsequently divorced him.
It's like being seven again and doing something bad and waiting for your father to come home- except he felt that way for *two years*. This book reads like a car crash- gripping, horrifying and difficult to keep your eyes away from. Recommended.
