Weird but worth a read

A very dear friend quite some time ago lent me a little book by Iain Banks called The Wasp Factory.  Its protagonist is violent, completely unbalanced, and at times darkly funny.  This is not a gentle or sweet book, but it grabs your attention in sharply pointed teeth and won’t let you go until it’s done with you.  This crazy book kept me up very late at night and then completely surprised me.  If you can handle some, no a lot of violence, cruelty and simple madness, give this small book a try.

By the way, Jane would not approve.
