Genius

DBC Pierre has a style all his own & it's one you don't want to miss.

If you've read Vernon God Little & enjoyed it, you'll like this one too. It's crazy - but what else would you expect from this "one of a kind" author?

Gabriel is not a character you are going to love - at least, not right away. He's a substance abuser, and he's not making life easy for those around him. Gabriel has decided to die - but now that he's made the decision, he realises he doesn't have to do it right away. First he's going to have one last wild boozy, party with a friend.

Except that's not quite how things work out. His best friend ends up in prison in Japan after the most bizarre sequence of events. And Gabriel's attempts to get his friend out of prison result in another bizarre series of events.

While the details of the story are unimaginable (for most of us at least), in the context of the story they are utterly believable & compelling & once again I found myself having to tell my husband what mad thing had just happened in the book.

This is another DBC Pierre book I did not want to put down. It's funny-crazy.

If you're looking for eloquent satire, you have found your author.

The sound quality is good, the reader does a great job with the characters & oh boy you're in for such a fun ride.
