Top Customer Reviews
Sean O'Neill has written a clever story. It centres around a character called Clean Weiss. Clean should have been called Klein after his uncle but for his father's Italian accent.
Clean has a computer expert brother called Redford who is confined to bed in the basement as he is too obese to move.
Clean is on sick leave from his accountancy job and signed up for group therapy to counter his depressive moods. The members of the group provide much ammunition for comedy as Clean reflects on them and their various problems helped by insights from a notebook 'accidentally acquired' from his therapist, Brian, and Redfords hacking abilities.
Clean and Redford discover that all the patients have links, four degrees of separation, hence the title, but is this accidental or part of some devious plan?
Sean O'neill's writing style reminds me of the late lamented Keith Waterhouse and the book reminiscent of Billy Liar but that is no criticism; the book is very well written with just the odd (forgiveable) typo.
I did find the cover photograph misleading as the briefcase is full of dollars which has no bearing on the story which is set in London where Clean collects and loses £50,000 worth of redundency money.
All-in-all an entertaining and amusing bit of light-hearted escapism.
It's really funny.
