Customer Review

Reviewed in India on 20 January 2020
I found it a tremendous effort to get through this book: it is completely meaningless (and not in that relatable, pleasant way that life can sometimes be, but in the sense of being pointless), with nothing to redeem it in terms either of literary quality; likeable characters; a well-developed story or even a social/political commentary. The prose is especially tiresome: interchangeable tenses within the same setting; unnecessary descriptions of actions such as making tea and wearing a shirt; and an absence of inverted commas while narrating conversation, which I personally find particularly annoying as a language tool. A wholly avoidable read.
