Whilst I am a fan of Will Self's work, I simply found this set of 10 short stories frustrating.
There is no denying the fact that Self has a talent at coming up with some great story lines and some of the plots here are fantastic, the problem is they don't go anywhere further than that.
It seems, on each occasion, Self had a brain wave for a plot but was simply unable to create a decent story line from it.
