Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I haven't read Jonathan Coe before so I can't say if it is better/not as good as his previous novels, however once I started 'Expo 58' I found it hard to put down. It is a light and easy to read novel and it is very funny, until it gets to the end. Coe has created a real sense of place and time in this novel as well as an interesting cast of characters. Before reading it I knew nothing about Expo 58, so it has also added to my historical knowledge. Overall an entertaining and intelligent version of the Cold War spy story with a clever and twisted plot.
