As the story builds to its climax, Faulks pulls together powerful ideas about family, money, religion, and the way we live now.
"... Faulks knows the book world and satirises it with brio... A compelling tale of contemporary London."(The Observer)
"... Among Sophie�s guests is a creation of genuine force: John Veals, the hedge fund manager... a kind of Moriarty figure, a Napoleon of (banking) crime far more effectively wicked than Faulks�s Bond baddie."(The Times)
"A portrayal of modern London that is both richly entertaining and highly rewarding. Faulks has come as close as anyone to completing the jigsaw that is this crazy, fascinating city of ours."(The Evening Standard)
"Sebastian Faulks�s ambitious new novel could hardly be more timely, since it takes as one of its principal narrative threads the imminent collapse of a bank that will have to be bailed out by the government... It is to Faulks�s credit that he both wrong-foots us and keeps up the narrative tension until the very end..."(The Sunday Times)

Interesting interconnected characters
Enjoyed the well created characters and their thoughts and feelings. And not the least how they cross each others lives, very clever.
Noticed too late that I had gotten the abridged version and saw the original wasn't available. Can't stop wondering how that would have been though and what they have cut out.
