powerful & disturbing - needs concentration!

This is a story told backwards. It takes a bit of getting used to; you need to concentrate much harder, particularly with dialogue. The mysterious narrator, however, does not know that he is telling the story backwards, and his increasingly grotesque misinterpretation of events is both painfully funny and increasingly disturbing - particularly as it is all expressed in Martin Amis' quite brilliant prose. A very powerful and thought provoking book. Steven Pacey, who has narrated several of Ammis' books, turns in a tour de force - absolutely superb.

In short a disturbing book, but a very worthwhile book. I would strongly recommend it, but it is not a light listen!

Superb dark brilliance..

As ever Mr Amis has impressed. What a mind he has, to create such dark yet poetic marvellousness. Highly recommended.
