Lionel Asbo by Martin Amis

Wow! But is Amis on form in this one.

Lionel Asbo is an uncomfortable character – the illogicality of some of the characters is hard to deal with.

Lionel himself is a London thug, who wins the lottery whilst in jail – and the novel goes to some lengths to explore the potential impacts of the ‘wrong’ person winning. As well as our celebrity obsessed culture.

I’d definately recommend it.
