    MOBI Number 11 Kindle Ê ´ posthd.pro number epub, Number 11 MOBIJonathan Coe is always entertaining so it is no surprise that this book is a page turner It is also an incisive satire that says much about the strangeness and ineuality at the heart of modern Britain This is a seuel to his earlier book What a Carve Up which was part satire of Thatcherite values and part homage to 50s and 60s British film comedies In

    MOBI Number 11 Kindle Ê ´ posthd.pro number epub, Number 11 MOBII was about fifty pages into this book before I realised it was an unexpected seuel to What a Carve Up Jonathan Coe’s acclaimed 1994 novel satirising the Thatcher years in Britain which was surprising as I always assumed that book was a standalone Having read What a Carve Up I can tell you that you needn’t have read it before picking up Number 11 and even Coe himself seems to be subtly describing this book as “Seuels which are not really seuels Seuels where the relationship to the original is obliue slippery” p152 Which is accurate The uote above is in reference to What a Whopper a real 1962 Sid James film that loosely connected to the real 1961 Sid James film What a Carve Up I’ll try to keep the exclamation marks to a minimum here on out but I also really liked Number 11 There isn’t much of a plot It’s basically an overview of 21st century Britain Rachel a young Oxford graduate who can’t find work becomes

    MOBI Number 11 Kindle Ê ´ posthd.pro number epub, Number 11 MOBIThis is a funny and mildly disturbing state of England and coming of age novel I’d only read one previous book by Coe Expo 58 an unrepresentative 1950s set comedy so this is a better example of his usual pattern multiple loosely linked storylines Here the theme is the absurdity of modern culture encompassing many aspects unjust wars the excesses of the uber rich the obsession with celebrity and suspicion and exclusion of those who are different from us The number 11 keeps popping up tooMy favorite parts were a Survivor type reality television show and a laughably over the top prize ceremony banuet At times I had trouble fitting all the pieces together in my mind which reduced the impact but overall it works The biting critiue never detracts from the characterization and the b

That was how much I enjoyed it so much that I felt distraught when I knew it was overCompletely addictive – and what a fantastic return to form after the lacklustre Expo 58 I read this at breakneck speed barely able to tear myself away from it It tells inte

    MOBI Number 11 Kindle Ê ´ posthd.pro number epub, Number 11 MOBIWhat’s happened to Jonathan Coe? Did his publisher insist he write another book and Coe shrugged his shoulders and said “Oh if I must”? Or has he simply run out of inventive steam? This book reprises many of the themes that made his previous novels so entertaining and incisive biting satires on all the evils of modern life – greed capitalism political ambition – and here admittedly he comes up to date and adds a few – reality TV bullying on social media and so o
