This book is not easy reading, due both to the content as well as the density of the writing. The characters are all deplorable, and it was therefore difficult to like this novel.

"Jelinek's fragmented style blurs reality and imagination, creating a harsh, expressionistic picture of sexuality," -Scotland on Sunday (review)

Fascist people trying to get what they want with no empathy and a lust for a life of selfish desires and control. Loved it. They are not likable and that is what makes it a great novel. It is easier to write about likable people but to get people to care about characters like this takes talent.
