Publisher's Summary

Would it be your ultimate fantasy to enter a video game? A realm where you can look like a hero or a goddess, fly space-ships, slay dragons, a realm where there are no consequences and no responsibilities. Or would it be your worst nightmare? Stuck in an endless state of war and chaos where not even death can offer an escape…This is where you find out. This is Bedlam.

It won't make you Skinny or Sexy!

I have listened to all other Brookmyre's available so i am a fan of his approach to story telling.

Bedlam is definitely classic Brookmyre. It is a cheeky, black-humoured and surprising tale that covers off some interesting observations about 21st century life.

I persisted for old times sake

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

Genuinely not sure who this is aimed at. Sure, long-term admirers like myself will give it the benefit of the doubt because we know Brookmyre has a brilliant voice and tells a great tale. However, I wouldn't recommend this as an introduction.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

He made a decent fist of it but there wasn't a great deal of scope for him to work with.

What character would you cut from Bedlam?

A few more decent characters would have helped.

Any additional comments?

I'll be back for Brookmyre's next effort. He is always worth listening to.
