    [What a Carve Up] EBOOK READ Remember when Hollywood used to keep putting out extremely similar movies two by two at exactly the same time like The Truman Show and Pleasantville or Antz and A Bug's Life? This novel is the companion piece to Iain Banks' slightly better Complicity; in both someone goes around murdering representatives of the vile English establishment in amusing ways The point is to spin some riffs on the various ways these creeps run the UK

What a Carve Up review Ñ 103 Rupoli Hilary una giornalista senza opinioni definite Roderick un mercante d'arte lascivo e ignorante Dorothy crudele proprietaria di un'azienda agricola Henry un politico sempre pronto a cambiare partito Mark un trafficante d'armi Lungo le vite. What a Carve Up is so much than a political novel though it is certainly that The Winshaw peeps represent all that was wrong with the greed decade 1980s in Britain when people I cared for couldn t get a job or proper medical treatment on the national health In spite of my disgust with those times I m delighted by Coe s absolutely horrid unabashedly over the top baddies who represent what can go wrong when creeps rule Also a plus is the ever shifting narrative from first person to manuscript to newspaper article to third person etc Love itCoe draws a network of parallels between his narrative and the 1961 film What a Carve Up which is itself a spiffy parody of the horror film and the British cozy genres The author uses a tame bedroom scene from the movie to describe the sexual awakening of the protagonist Owen as a youth and in a separate part of the book Thomas Winshaw s paraphilia But the connection to the film runs deeper The characters and situations Coe draws are at times as outlandish as those in the film A beastly upper crust family the imposing dark mansion an attractive sincere nurse a grave family solicitor a nutty spinster tensions between social class unreuited love the reading of the will with ensuing murders and certainly sexual repression all these elements from the film are in this novel Suits me the film s been on my mental like list for uite some time because it s a homage to Christie s Ten Little IndiansThere are yummy little illustrations of each Winshaw dotted throughout the book each introduces the characters textual profiles As caricatures they are as cartoonish and farcical as Coe s text Likewise they provide lots of information on who these people really are Stylistically they copy Tenniel and I believe that this is intentional because they effectively convey a type of demented whimsy that s found in Alice Through the Looking Glass I hope these sketches are in all editionsThe message is fairly straightforward Greed is bad and can ruin people s lives Got it But for me what saves this book from being boringly preachy are mainly two things The FionaOwen storyline harkens to Orpheus loss of Eurydice a major sniffle moment Much of the sexuality in the book is insulated dreamlike and voyeuristic Let s face it a healthy well adjusted existence is preferred by most in real life but makes for poor copy The film s bedroom scene presented through a mirror Owen s titillation via the lens of countless video tapes Joan s slumber observed the deliciously icky Thomas all these remind me of the pathos and terrible conseuences of an Orphean gaze and the impotence of fear and greedThe novel s other saving grace and great strength is humor I wonder Would I like this book as much if I didn t agree with the author s politics as presented in the text How much does this matter to me I dunno But it s been a long time since a novel has made me laugh right out loud the way this one has I startled the cat on several occasions with my guffaws This is truly the author s gift because it s those funny shiny moments in the novel that remind me how hilarity makes life worth living no matter who s running the country Now I will never

What a Carve Up review Ñ 103 Di uesti personaggi vengono ricostruiti i famosi anni Ottanta e perché no anche uelli che sembrano essere i futuri anni Novanta L'autore utilizza diversi codici narrativi dalla detective story all'horror gotico dalla farsa alla satira politica. This book was recommended to me by a friend who stated it was a fun read Oh my god is this your idea of fun Are you crazy woman Tired dull not as funny as it thinks it is satire on 1980 s Tory Britain Blah the Tories are not funny whichever way you spin them for those of you wishing to indulge in an experiment to prove this point feel free to move to the UK and suffer under the current government like the rest of us I just didn t see the point of this book and it is now filed under the same mental category as Salmon Fishing in the Yemen another pointless book Sadly I opted to take this book to Turkey with me as part of my long hard months away from the UK book pile Happily it s now been released as a book crossing book in Turkey which means there is probably zero chance of me ever seeing it again The Rapids of a Great River ricostruiti i famosi anni Ottanta e perché no anche uelli che sembrano essere i futuri anni Novanta L'autore utilizza diversi codici narrativi dalla detective story all'horror gotico dalla farsa alla satira politica. This book was Tracking Globalization recommended to me by a friend who stated it was a fun The Laughing Buddha Zen and the Comic Spirit rest of us I just didn t see the point of this book and it is now filed under the same mental category as Salmon Fishing in the Yemen another pointless book Sadly I opted to take this book to Turkey with me as part of my long hard months away from the UK book pile Happily it s now been The Shadows Part 1 Black Dagger Brotherhood #13 released as a book crossing book in Turkey which means there is probably zero chance of me ever seeing it again
