did not like it
bookshelves: australian, crime, f2fbookclub

I've been wracking my brains trying to come up with a concise, reasoned analysis of this book but I can't.

I even thought I'd wait until after yesterday's f2f bookclub to see if anybody was able to come up with anything that would give me an insight into how the book may have worked for somebody, but I still can't.

Perhaps it's a short story that got carried away, perhaps it is, as one person theorised, research for a degree that somehow got a publishing contract.

The voice of the main character may have been aiming for twit, but ended up coming across as a twat, there's precious little storyline to be found, and despite dragging myself to the end of the book, it just simply didn't work. No idea what it was trying to achieve, say or tell me.
