This review is from: A Game of Hide and Seek (Hardcover)
Unlike the reviewer above, I didn't find this powerful and unsettling novel particularly funny. It is however devastatingly truthful, with complex and entirely convincing characters. It sounds putting off to say that most are trapped in their own particular brand of failure and despair, and yet it is its truthfulness that makes this fine novel optimistic, in showing how the characters cope with their troubles and surmount or come to terms with them in different ways. A good read.
