I read this years ago and revisited in audiobook format. I found it a great read the first time through, though I found it a little more arduous this time through. every tiny part of the events sets off a tangent from the main story line. This is fine when it's character building but a lot of it is observational style comedy shoehorned into the books narrative. The book takes too long to get where it's going it seems, the first 3 or 4 chapters all occur within 6 rings of a telephone. When Elton sinks his teeth into the real themes of the book (rape, obsession, political correctness and gender interaction) he is at his best. A lot of the filling around those themes and the plot getting from start to finish can be a little flabby. Not a bad novel, but he does have better under his belt, Popcorn and The First Casualty being my picks..
The narrator is fine for the most part but the American accent and speaking style for the character of Jack can be annoying.
