Publisher's Summary

Set against the backdrop of the Millenium celebrations and Britain's increasingly compromised role in America's war against terrorism, The Closed Circle lifts the lid on an era in which politics and presentation, ideology and the media have become virtually indistinguishable. Darkly comic, hugely engaging, and compulsively readable, it is the much-anticipated follow-up to Jonathan Coe's best-selling novel The Rotters' Club, and reintroduces us to the characters first encountered in that book. But whereas The Rotters' Club was a novel of innocence, The Closed Circle is its opposite: a novel of experience.

Closed but not forgotten

Having read all of Jonathan Coes previous books, I was delighted to find this book on audio.
Even if like myself, you have already enjoyed reading the book itself, you are in for a real treat if you purchase this version.
Colin Buchanan's voices are stunning.
He conveys every aspect of Brummie life with wonderful eloquence.
He is even able to make the women in the story sound `real`.
As the final chapters unfold and you realise that you are not hearing things as the numbers of the chapters are given, you will quite literally, not want to put this book down.
Well, your i-pod at least.
5 out of 5 is no idle rating, in my best Birmingham accent, all I can say is that its brilliant.

Excellent listen - highly recommended

This book had me gripped from beginning until end and I didn't want it to finish. The narrative is excellent with authentic Brummy accents.

It is a sequel to 'The Rotters Club' and I wish I had listened rather than read this first.
