Yes and no

Just finished with the latest offering from Irish crime satirist “Bateman”. I’m happy to state that this was a funny and intelligent outing for the “mystery man”. I do enjoy the allusions to other crime fiction writers and if nothing else this book can fill your reading list for many years to come.

However, I do think the hypochondriac elements of the mystery man’s character, are a touch overplayed to the point of being boring. I my opinion it adds little to the overall enjoyment and is not actually as funny as the author thinks it is.
