In another thread I rated Amis as my favorite contemporary author. Since I'm back at school and I thoroughly enjoyed Time's Arrow, I decided to give this title a shot.
It's hilarious. I'm about 1/3 of the way through, and I know for sure that this book is the best-written profanity-ridden work I've read yet. It's heavy (on the vocab) and very dark, but the wit and thought process of the main protagonist, Richard Tull, gives me a laugh like every five minutes.
Good stuff. One thing, though, is that he uses some British slang and sentence structure in dialogue which can be confusing.
