Review: Going Out by Scarlett Thomas

Going Out - Scarlett Thomas

I had no idea this was a rare book and just donated it to our local thrift store .... Oops!

The reason I donated it however was that it was cluttering up my bookshelf, using up space that could be filled with something worth reading.


I love Scarlett Thomas, I really do. I enjoyed The End of Mr Y, I loved Popco, I even found some entertainment in Our Tragic Universe (that took some doing, believe me!) ..... But Going Out? No.


Boring, irritating, self absorbed characters who take a lifetime to get to the point. Long drawn out plot that ended with a serious anti climax. And I saw the twist (if you can call it that .... ) coming a mile off.


Really, Ms Thomas? Really?
