Review:

" Wildly original, brutally gruesome, a dazzling performance that will outrage as many readers as it delights. Vulgarly, bitterly funny, it will not be forgotten by those who can take it" ( New York Times)

"Blessedly, monstrously, bloatedly, cynically funny and fantastically unique. No one has ever written a book like this" ( Financial Times)

"The greatest satirical work in the English language" ( Philip Toynbee, Observer)

"My all-time favourite war-novel" ( Andy McNab, Spectator)

"The first real adult book I ever read, aged 13. It taught me 1) even grown-up books can be funny, 2) I never want to enlist in the armed forces" (Lionel Shriver Marie Claire)
