Description

I feel the same as George about his producer, “Ben Bimbaum, whose full name George always struggled to pronounce. Unfortunately, he is having an affair with a therapist, Angela, who is now pregnant, and he’s not sure how to deal with this news.

Poor old George, for example, believes himself to be a dyed in the wool liberal, but he can't keep up with changing terminology and keeps putting his foot in it. Browsing the new release shelf at the library I stumbled upon it and after reading the summary checked it out. IF I have a criticism then it is how the tortoise part was handled and I won't elaborate as I don't want to spoil it. I would like to thank both Netgalley and Random House UK for supplying a copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review. Then I would just like to state that I have been a big fan of Boynes previous works and as a result I was VERY excited when I received this copy.The Cleverley family live a gilded life, little realising how precarious their privilege is, just one tweet away from disaster. The setting is present day with several references to the pandemic and mask wearing, also the acknowledgement that there are sectors of US society who do not believe that Trump lost the last US election. There’s very little plot to the book, it simply tracks a short period of time in the life of this group – a downward spiral that seems to have no bottom.

This is the darkly satirical story of an utterly dysfunctional family most of whom are addicted to social media.

John Boyne's novel is a social satire that lambasts the social media frenzy and the damage it causes.
