I so wanted to love this book.

I'm a big Stephen Fry man, and I expected a lot from this book. It delivered a lot, but I have to say that after the first read, it has left me feeling a little disappointed. It's not the easiest book to follow, and the interspersion of third person narrative with the anonymous characters amongst Adrian's narrative seemed, at times, choppy and irritating. It's something I'll definitely re-read though, as I think that second time round, I may understand and appreciate those bits more.

But for now, not totally impressed. Solid effort, Stephen - one I definitely enjoyed reading - but it didn't leave me wanting more.
