Martina, you have to read this book. So far I am as positively surprised and entertained as I was when I first read Slaughterhouse Five.
Below is an example, as to why.

'It had seemed to us philosophically self-evident that suicide was every free person's right; a logical act when faced with terminal illness or senility; a heroic one when faced with torture or the avoidable deaths of others; a glamourous one in the fury of disappointed love (see: Great Literature). None of these categories had applied in the case of Robson's squalidly mediocre action.'
