There's no story!,
This review is from: With My Lazy Eye (Paperback)
This book was terribly written and I fail to understand how it was published. I couldn't get passed the first few pages because every sentence was peppered with contrived and unnecessary descriptions that just bogged it down and made it difficult to read (I really didn't care that 'someone had done a number two' in the bath and I coulnd't understand the significance of it to the book or plot). In the opening chapter the book jumps from one instance to the next and I don't know whether I have an old fashioned idea of the purposes of a novel but I believe it is meant to tell a story. There was no story here, just a stream of random and over described sentences that became instantly forgettable as soon as I read the next.
