David Stick with it Adele. It is a book you will remember for a long time.

Adele Pennington I really didn't like it. Except the bit with the whipper.

David Hmmm, "like" isn't really the important bit - it is the feeling of being totally helpless against a massive machine that just rumbles along and doesn't give a toss about you...... I hope you never feel that way, but I worked for the post Office......Anyway the story is too powerful to write-off, let it stew for a while then think back to it.........Then read Metamorphosis.

Adele Pennington I see what you mean, and yes I have felt that way too! Luckily I escaped early on. I read extracts from metamorphosis when I was younger and really loved it, so it's definitely on my to-read list!
