From acclaimed author Lionel Shriver comes a brilliant and unflinching novel about the devastating cost of prizing achievement over love.
"A brilliant tale of doomed love..This is not a novel about tennis or rivalry; it's about love, marriage and the balance of power in relationships.... Double Fault is a compelling and playfully ironic take on the sex wars, blistering with.brilliant writing and caustic language." ( The Observer, London)

Nine hours of arguing
If you like listening to people fight, then this one's for you. I've liked exactly two of the books I've read by Lionel Shriver - We Need To Do Something About Kevin" and "So Much For That". The others? Not so much. What's wrong with this writer, how can the quality of writing and storytelling vary so much?
This book is a nearly-constant battle between the two principal characters. If you like the animosity and negative energy released in an argument, you will enjoy this. Otherwise, give it a pass, or a score of "love" - not.
