5.0 out of 5 stars So Much for the NHS..., 15 April 2012
This review is from: So Much for That (Paperback)
I have to say this is one of the most powerful and memorable books I have read in a long time. I finished it a week ago and haven't started a new book yet as my head is still spinning from all the issues of this book. Lionel Shriver is angry and articulate, which is a winning combination. Her rage is balanced by her humour and you can't help but be drawn in to the lives of her characters. I found the book ultimately uplifting and hopeful- that the human spirit can and does rise above the trappings of capitalism. However, given that David Cameron's hypocritical and disgusting government have just got their healthcare bill through the house of Lords it is a depressing reminder of where we may find ourselves in the UK in the not too distant future. Eat fruit for breakfast and do what you can to avoid the plight of Shep and Glynis as we may not have our wonderful NHS for much longer.
