Dead Air   by Iain Banks

Read: 2004-02-04 Reviewed: 2004-03-11
Re-read factor:
This is a nasty, nasty, horrible book. It is fully of totally obnoxious characters, a straightforward plot which contains banter that you hear on the radio every day, and an ending which is totally god-awful in every way.

There is a section in the book where a man is hiding out in the house of a gangster whose wife he is banging, and it is admittedly suspenseful although anti-heroic. The resolution is unexpected, and does round the book off well, but with hindsight is not very surprising.

Question I want answered is, who finds this stuff even remotely entertaining? I certainly don't.
