    Story
    (117)

    Flann O'Brien's most popular and surrealistic novel concerns an imaginary, hellish village police force and a local murder.

    Weird, satirical, and very funny, its popularity has suddenly increased with the mention of the novel in the TV series Lost.

    Amazon Customer says: "Narrator extradinaire"
    "Its Complicated"
    Overall

    I'm not going to show my ignorance and say this book was complete and utter crap BUT unless you really want to think about what your listening to, as opposed to me who doesn't really want to have to think to hard about the plot, this book is not for you.
    Perhaps by listening to the entire book it all becomes somewhat more worthwhile, but I got tired of searching for meaning, symbolism or just some connection between the various settings in the book and how characters were connected - if at all. and most of the time the absurbity of what is being discused is to hard to make sense of anyway.
    However my husband - who thought it was rubbish also insisted we listen the entire book as he wanted to know how the first chapters tied into the remainder - so there must be some hook there somewhere.
    Felt like I had wasted my eight hour trip to town!
