There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
It's a very odd book, for sure. The narrator seems to switch between seeing how time happens in reverse, but then switching to perceiving time as moving forward and taking what he sees literally, depending on his emotional needs, dictated by what he's witnessing. It's overall a very cool effect, if difficult to explain. I'm impressed, though. I've certainly never read anything like it before. I like it enough to where I've decided to order a few more Amis books, this being the first of his I've ever read.
I highly recommend this book.

Incidentally, although it is not vital, the best way to read this book is without having any idea of what it is about, apart from the fact that everything (and I mean literally everything) happens with time reversed, to the extent that effects cause causes - for example, one is "cured" by the knife being pulled from one's heart; at a dinner table the food comes from one's stomach, in a mess, and forms in neat segregated portions on the plate. And so on. Please don't be put off by my clumsy attempt to describe the format. Read the book.
