Ambition, fifth and final part

Adult
Rated 1.00/5 based on 1 reviews
Imagine a world where you are young, hot, hip – and published. Picture a long, hot summer in West London, literary prize shortlists, an alcoholic French agent you keep bumping into at random parties, priapic friends and vapid ex-girlfriends. Consider a life in which even the sight of your own reflection fills you with anxiety and where mirrors give you fear.

About NFH Walker

Since graduating from St. Andrews University six years ago I have kept myself busy working as in a major London advertising agency.

To give a brief flavour of my life, to date I have lived overseas in Shanghai, China, as an English Teacher, in New Jersey, USA as a Golf Caddie, and spend my early years in Muscat, Oman, where my father worked in the Oil Business when I was young.

Review by: Adam Smith on March 09, 2009 :
Pure self-indulgent rubbish. The story is non existent, the characters are all unlikeable, made so by the fact that you are never able to connect to any of them because the story is told by flipping back and forth in time every couple of paragraphs. They are all also nearly the same character, just divided in which profession they are seeking (one is a budding photographer, one a budding musician, one a budding actor, one a budding author, and somehow they all catch breaks at the exact same time.)

It's a book about an author trying to get published who wrote a book about an author getting published. It's a book that is looking for a story rather than a story that is looking to be written. Poor writing compounds the problems found within.

This review can be applied to the previous four segments as well, as all of them are almost identical in all regards.
