From the internationally-known author of The Beach, a gripping mystery and stylistic tour de force that delves into the subconscious mind, with brilliantly disturbing results. A young man is brutally assaulted late at night in an underground train by a gang of thugs. Beaten unconscious, he lies for days in a hospital bed - but appears to make a full recovery. On discharge from hospital, Carl picks up the threads of his daily life, visiting friends, seeing his girlfriend - until he starts to notice strange leaps in his perception of time, distortions in his experience. Is he truly reacting with the outside world, or might he be terribly mistaken? So begins a dark psychological drama that raises profound questions about the boundary between the real and the imagined.

Alex Garland is the author of the best-selling novels The Beach and The
Tesseract. In 2003 he wrote the screenplay for Danny Boyle's hugely

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The only minus point was I did think it could have done without the drawings - the writing was strong enough to stand alone - and they did interfere with the flow somewhat.
I would definitely recommend this to anyone.
