What a brilliant book! I got it as a Christmas present and when I saw that it had 133 000 words or so in it I thought How am I going to through this? I’m now reading it for the second time and I’m still laughing at things I laughed at the first time.

I bought this book because I was led on by the cover and the blurb and also the first page. I thought, ‘Well, if the rest of it is anything like this then I could be on to a winner.’
I was. The Fabricator is the funniest, saddest, most romantic thing I ever read. You start off thinking ‘This guy’s just making it up as he goes along. He’s a fabricator for God sake. But before you know it you’re sitting there believing it.For 4 days The Fabricator lifted my mind and my heart. I didn’t want it to end so I spent as long at the last 50 pages as I did at the previous 290. I’m going to read it again starting tomorrow. I loved this book and highly recommend it!
