SUMMARY ¶ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ¹ Jonathan Coe

If Charles Dickens and Agatha Christie had ever managed to collaborate they might have produced this shamelessly entertain. One of the true joys in life in my opinion is the right to differ Few things can be compared to the feeling you get when you read a book or see a movie which everyone has been raving about and realize that it's utter crap I really wanted that to be the case with What A Carve Up although having read Coe in the past I knew there wasn't much chance for that It's one of those books that I feel there's not much point talking about No matter what I say about it you cannot grasp the true brilliance of Coe's masterpiece until you've read it No words can do it justice Political comedy an accusing point with the finger to the powers that be or a mystery novel Coe proves that sometimes there's absolutely no point in categorizing what's beyond categorization P S The chapter about Dorothy is one of the most traumatic brilliant and simply put perfect chapters in the history of literature while the symbolism of the ending had me just blankly staring at the page for what seemed like a very long time

Remember when Hollywood used to keep putting out extremely similar movies two by two at exactly the same time like The Truman Show and Pleasantville or Antz and A Bug's Life This novel is the companion piece to Iain Banks' slightly better Complicity; in both someone goes around murdering representatives of the vile English establishment in amusing ways The point is to spin some riffs on the various ways these creeps run the UK It's all a big revenge fantasy and uite amusing and all that but it just isn't very serious Which I wouldn't mention only this particular novel is 500 pages long so the jokes had better be good ones
