'You wouldn't get this sort of behaviour in better countries, Ellis felt. In his mind he saw the exquisite civilisation of an English city centre on a Saturday night. The calm Tudor pubs, with their motherly barmaids and folded newspapers on the counter, library-quiet save for the occasional clink as halves of ale met. Did such countries ever think about here? What did the ...more

Ellis Dau is in a predicament. He caused some trouble at school and now he is grounded; stranded with his parents, with no electronics and without permission to leave the house. When he is instructed to tag along to work with his dad (the editor of the Chronical newspaper), Ellis realises that problems are everywhere, and that the world as he knows it can be darker than he ever realised. In an impoverished country with high rates of corruption, things are far from idyllic. However, when a group ...more

Hum. Ho hum. Yes, there were good bits, there was chocolate in the yoghurt. But when I find myself drifting off on a train of thought unrelated to the book it's not a good sign. 3.1

Review for the Sunday Times: http://bit.ly/2tbQXzB

– This was the summer people began to speak of *purity* and *tradition* and *taking things back*...–

– The billionaire up close: midget ears, delicate eyes and nose, hair thin and neatly combed, a pursed mouth and the faintest sketch of a moustache, all encased in a great slab of face, a slab that correctly employed could have made at least three such faces. Whatever creator one believed in, it was indulgent work. The effect was not so much good o

Clever and funny, with some great observations of modern media and culture wars. Not a word was wasted, very enjoyable.

Set in a fictional Eastern European country, the scenes in this book could happen almost anywhere - violence, corruption, fundamentalist vigilante gangs, press freedoms being curtailed - things like this are happening all over the world right now.
I found the tight writing, short sentences and the way the story was moved on by means of a series of rather disjointed episodes made it hard to keep my mind on the book - however my husband also read it, and he loved it and read the whole thing in a s

A good book for what it is but I didn’t really connect with it. A story about a newspaper owner in a dodgy country with lots of violence was about all I gleaned from it. Not really much merit for me but it would doubtless appeal to other tastes.
