Customer Review

VINE VOICEon 29 July 2008
I read this at GCSE, too many years ago, and failed to connect much, but revisiting it as an adult, it is a harrowing tale of consumerist society. The hero of the book buys entirely into the American dream of selling and credit, and boasting and spin, and is bewildered and unwilling to accept it when the game spits him out without a safety net.

As most of the dominant characters are filled with the dreams of self-determination, we see that those still in thrall cannot understand his plight, and seek around for blame for their own failures.

This is a tremendously powerful play, equally readable as viewable, and is a wonderful antidote to the 'Attitude is Altitude' poster on your office wall.
