Fourth Estate have confirmed that they are bringing the release of this book forward to 31st July.

Neil Nearly finished this now. Enjoying it more than I thought I would - first few pages were a bit off-putting but then it started to get hold of me a bit. The thing with multiple parentheses is completely aggravating, though!

Neil I gave this 3 stars. It should have been 4 but I had to knock a star off for the gimmicky use of parentheses: that spoiled it for me. The writing is clever and often amusing. There isn't really a plot and no effort made to tidy everything up. But, apart from the parentheses, I enjoyed reading it.

Anna Safar | 3 comments Meh. This is definitely not among my favourites. The parentheses were indeed annoying.
