Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
Possibly, but not for me.
Did Steven Pacey do a good job differentiating each of the characters? How?
The reader did a good job keeping the story going as best as possible.
If this book were a film would you go see it?
Any additional comments?
I really enjoyed Empire of the Sun, High Rise and The Concrete Island and so came to this novel with high expectations and settled in for an enjoyable read. However, I was to be very disappointed this time. I found the whole experience to be one of one third a repeat of Empire of the Sun. One third unnecessarily graphic descriptions of sexual experiences (maybe I'm a prude, but I would rather use my own imagination thank you!) and I didn't complete the last third of the novel.It would not put me off trying another novel by J.G.Ballard, but I was very close to sending this one back! Overall - just not that interesting.
