I'm on a roll at the moment with audio books, the latest book is...
By Ben Elton
ISBN: 9780552999953 (Book)
ISBN: 9780753118368 (Audio)
The war on drugs has been lost. The simple fact is that the whole world is rapidly becoming one vast criminal network. From pop stars and royal princes to crack whores and street kids, from the Groucho Club toilets to the poppy fields of Afghanistan, we are all partners in crime.
High Society is a story about Britain today, a criminal nation in which everybody is either breaking the law or knows people who do. It takes the reader on a hilarious, heartbreaking and terrifying journey through the kaleidoscope world that the law has created and from which the law offers no protection.
I really enjoyed this little gem from Ben Elton, yet again he has touched on another topic with such forethought and insight that it is hard for you not to think he has insider knowledge. I found myself laughing out loud on the bus to the amusement of all the other passengers. If you haven't read any of Ben's books before I think you should start off with 'This Other Eden' ISBN: 9780552771832 or 'Gridlock' ISBN: 9780552773560.
