Strange book, glad I persevered,
This review is from: Armadillo (Paperback)
I have a bit of a thing about insurance so it was fun to read a novel about loss adjusting. The larger-than-life, mostly vile characters are entertaining and there are some great set pieces - making it possible the novel was written with a screenplay in mind.
On the downside, simply too much going on - Greek helmets, sleep experiments, Transnistrian gypsies, philosophical diaries. But I love all the careering around London, the smoking - very nostalgic now - the dialogue and the punch ups.
