    I had to carefully consider whether or not this was worthy of three stars, which in my eyes means an okay book but nothing spectacular or whether it should be downgraded to 2 stars edging towards complete crap but with one or two redeeming features In the end I opted for the latter.I expected great things from this book and it failed to deliver in every aspect Firstly the quality of writing is poor, leading me to be frequently confused over who was speaking or performing an action and I had to carefully consider whether or not this was worthy of three stars, which in my eyes means an okay book but nothing spectacular or whether it should be downgraded to 2 stars edging towards complete crap but with one or two redeeming features In the end I opted for the latter.I expected great things from this book and it failed to deliver in every aspect Firstly the quality of writing is poor, leading me to be frequently confused over who was speaking or performing an action and contains sentences which not only contributed nought but made no sense Did Brookmyre even read this before it was sent to the publisher This is the most contributory factor to the two star rating, as it puts me off a book from the get go It really did come across as being written by the winner of a creative writing competition with one entry The use of the first person, then third person, the laz...

    I prefer his alternative title for this book F k this for a game of soldiers Kinda sums it up Anyway, Jack is back and on good form After a few books where CB indulges in some political rants, in this one he just concentrates on giving us a good story Unbelievable but then it wouldn t be a Brookmyre would it Set in the middle of nowhere somewhere in Scotland, Jack is despatched by his newspaper to go and trial out a new teambuilding weekend So off he goes in his usual cynical way Not I prefer his alternative title for this book F k this for a game of soldiers Kinda sums it up Anyway, Jack is back and on good form After a few books where CB indulges in some political rants, in this one he just concentrates on giving us a good story Unbelievable but then it wouldn t be a Brookmyre would it Set in the middle of nowhere somewhere in Scotland, Jack is despatched by his newspaper to go and trial out a new teambuilding weekend So off he goes in his usual...

    This is a book that never fails to make me giggle with appreciation of its black and yes sometimes sick humour Sure there are little in jokes, for example if you ve not seen the film Highlander from many moons ago you might not appreciate one throw away line, but it made me laugh out loud The snooker table scene is easy to imagine and the after comments by Jack hysterical.Brookmyre is easy to read and not afraid to comment.Why haven tbeen made into TV films Surely this would be a winn This is a book that never fails to make me giggle with appreciation of its black and yes sometimes sick humour Sure there are little in jokes, for example if you ve not seen the fil...
