Wonderful!

Books like this are the reason I keep renewing my Audible membership. DBC Pierre's best by a mile - totally original, compelling, funny, dark and brilliantly narrated. Wished it would never stop!

Odd - in a good way

For the first part of this story I was half-thinking I might give it up but it grew on me. The second half is, I think, much better than the first. It is sort of up my street in that I like dark humour - this is pitch-black and amusing rather than actually funny. It's also wry, touching, crude (content - but not needlessly) and really beautifully written. Good narration, quite 'flat' especially in the first 1/4 - but then that reflects the state of mind of the story-teller. Brilliant accents. The ending was not at all what I expected - it was better.
