Oken promises Later that night things only get worse when he drops in on his girlfriend Bobbie a fashion PR and reality TV show fanaticAs his London life spirals murderously out of control Matt is forced to seek out old flames and consider North Korean busine A british take on American Psycho A lot subtle than thatThe first person narrative makes it ambigous as to exactly what is going going on Matt Freeman is in his thirties and a resident of the barbican He appears to be at war with the city and expectation of how to live as a yuppieWe meet him as he is trying to get a new pair of designer glasses having deliberatly broken the last pair in a bid to get the latest stylesThis sets the scene We are given an insight into his minds meanderings as the city restaurants business partners lovers old friends cabbies the transport system all conspire against himAt times deliciously funny He has a business plan to expand into North Korea and often his disappointment with the City are tempered with what Kim and Koreans would doYou have to get through the stream of consciousness noise to work out what is going on and it looks like murder is involved at some point As Matt himself doesnt really know what is going on its hard to decipher and the book adds no real answersThe thing that sticks out about the book is how often Matts musings are correctA good book
