really liked it
bookshelves: book-club

I loved this book, but can't see myself reading it again (a bit like 1984). It was a bit Lord of the Flies meets F Scott Fitzgerald by way of American Psycho - I'd like to think my scientific background really shows in my inability to write a decent review. Maybe I'll update it when we've had book club and I can steal my more eloquent pals' ideas.

Monkeyinacoma I would quite happily read 1984 again.

Kate Bystrova Ha! I watched the trailer for the film they're making of this and very specifically thought that it looked like Lord of the Flies by way of The Great Gatsby. Shall have to give it a go :)
