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.

Great book for The British only, Oh yeh.

Would you consider the audio edition of Bedlam to be better than the print version?

I do not read books these days, I only listen, (poor eye sight), so I am unable to make the comparison. However, I found the audio version a hoot and enjoyed it immensly.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Ross, Bedlam of course. The way he slowly and methodically worked his way through his dilema and arrived at the final solution. His reaction to various situations and voiced opinions would have made any scotsman proud.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

Stiffing it to Ankuu in the final third of the book. Made me feel realy proud that our hero not only was working from the outside but also from the inside. Double payback, oh yeh. How many times you ever would have wanted to do that

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

The author definately aimed it at the British audience with all the (in) jokes and references that our international audience would have simply been unable to understand. Being a Brit of course I laughed and groned at the suble and not so subtle very British references. I certainly laghed and cryed at the right times. Poor Bob!!!

Any additional comments?

For a change no Americanisms that seem to be entering our language. Don't get me wrong I like Americans and their books. It's just nice for a change to have a book aimed just for the British. Well done the author and narrator for a very entertaing book.

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.
