5.0 out of 5 stars Really satisfying read., 5 Feb 2013
This review is from: Transmission (Paperback)
What a great book! I just finished it and though I have been compulsively drawn to it over the past few days I am now sorry the ride is over - so, to prolong my contact with Kunzru's world a little longer - I thought I'd write a quick review. This is a funny, intelligent and original tale. The plot keeps you involved to the last sentence and all the loose ends are satisfyingly tied up. The characters are well-drawn, authentic and they and the book as a whole carry various messages about the craziness of our modern, technology dependent world, corporate culture and first world excess. But although profound and intelligent this is not a weighty read. The reader is borne along by the funny twists of fate involving the characters and although Kunzru's acute, critical eye is cast upon all things and all men throughout, he is also compassionate and undestands the need of the the reader for a good old fashioned happy ending. I shall say no more - read it yourself and discover. A book like this makes me realise what a lot of rubbish I have read recently and what a pleasure to discover a new (to me) writer to follow.
