Publisher's Summary

He has nowhere to go. So he goes there. The narrator of The Society of Others is an alienated young man who sees no meaning in life. He doesn't even see the point of getting out of bed in the morning. To get his family off his back, he embarks on an aimless hitchhiking adventure around Europe. But his journey soon turns into an orgy of violence...

Disaffected Youth

I thought that the first couple of chapters describing the narrator of the story were excellent. He is 22 years old and describes himself as having an average degree from an average university. He doesn't have a job and spends most of his time in his room. On a whim he decides to go travelling with no particular destination in mind. From thence forward the story becomes more and more surreal and philosophical. I didn't really understand the ending I'm afraid.

William Nicholson writes beautifully and this was an enjoyable listen with lots of interesting musical and poetical references.
