Abandoned due to disgusting, offensive and completely unnecessary rape scene To be clear offensive because of the context and the way it was described and presented, not simply because there was a rape scene Suffice to say, this book should come with a big fuck off trigger warning I already thought the main characters were both idiots anyway, so there was no way I was going to continue with it after that. I hadn t heard of this book but I m glad I stumbled across it in my library sale section I picked it up for 20 cents and decided to give it a go I must say, the cover looks so gorgeous in that vintage circus poster kinda way After reading reading some reviews from other readers, I was worried about what I might find in this book but I m glad that I persevered anyway.We ll begin with what I didn t

I might find in this book but I m glad that I persevered anyway.We ll begin with what I didn t enjoy I was shocked by how many taboo issues were addressed in this novel and how there wasn t a single trigger warning at the beginning I can stomach gore and dark scenes in books but there were some things that seemed unnecessary and almost turned me off reading further Another issue I had with this book was the various references to Roman Italian cuisine and locations I know this was originally an Italian novel that had been translated but some references just went over my head.I was surprised by how much I really enjoyed this book The whole plot was fascinating and reminded me of Agatha Christie s And Then There Were None I didn t know that this was the kind book I was looking for to really pull me out of my reading slump Reading the book with perspectives from both sides light and dark sides , according to Saverio gave the narrativedepth and interest, and it was rather insightful The unexpected twists towards the conclusion made the plot evenunpredictable, which was enjoyable I also have to note that the fact that not everyone almost no one had a happy ending made the story realistic.Overall, I was shocked by this book and I loved that it reminded me of And Then There Were None It was an extremely dark and twisted novel, and was something that I wouldn t usually read I m glad that it surprised me and I highly recommend it to people who can handle gruesome and taboo issues If you want to keep updated with what I m reading next, feel free to add me as a friend on Goodreads and follow me on Instagram thebasicbookworm Won t be for everyonenever thought I would be interested in a dress about a satanic cult but it was just so good The plot twisted and turned The Roman backdrop was just what I needed The Argo like historical plot added evendimension I LOVED it The book has its faults Some of the descriptions are a bit heavy handed and the short chapters mean you re continually flipping from one storyline to the next and back It all adds to the general feeling of disorientation though Remember what Wikipedia says about a farce viewers are encouraged not to try to follow the plot in order to avoid becoming confused and overwhelmed well the same goes for readers here and, yet, to be fair, I picked up on all major plot points throughout the reading The

miss the hippos The book s funny, although you really need a dark sense of humour to appreciate much of it, and it s tragic, too in fact tragedy wins out at the end despite the happyish ending It s not a book I would ve bought and since I was hoping for somethinglike Me and You which I read recently and enjoyed I was a bit disappointed by this one but that s not the author s fault I much preferred Peter Sellers in Being There to Peter Sellers in The Party horses for courses.Read my full review here Niccolo Ammaniti first came into my life through the superb, thrilling novel I m not scared a couple of years ago The writing was clever, suspenseful and exquisite, the storyline intriguing and surprising So, as soon as I heard that his latest book had been translated I got myself a

writing is still clever, but much wittier with lots of absurd dialogue and inner thought processes The story is told from various people s perspectives in the third person, predominantly by a hen pecked, spineless accountant who runs a satanic cult behind his wife s back, and secondly by a vain, egocentric writer who is a manipulative strategist in every situation The book is full of wackos and weirdos, and whilst this is very entertaining, it does get a bit tiring when even as far as chapter 77 out of about 82 we are introduced to someone else, still If you enjoy satire, crazy situational comedy, shock value violence and a bunch of flawed but fascinating characters, I d recommend this to you Let the games begin Italian edition published in 2009 English edition published in
