There were many moments during Martin Martin when I felt the book was reaching for true greatness, and it was going somewhere amazing. And then those moments, inexorably, slipped away. We revisit the same incidents in the life of Martin Martin over and over again, from slightly different perspectives, until his life starts to feel as redundant as his name. And the book's ending, which I won't give away, feels like a major letdown.

"Fresh out of Study Centre 16, Jensen wants to pay off his student debts as soon as possible and blag his way to the top, helping the government instil its dream and mantra: Unity and Success. And there will be other rewards: a life of government-sanctioned vice is guaranteed, he'll get to live out his days in the floodlit safety of south London, never venturing into the wastelands of the north with is povos and tramps." "His first assignment is a simple one: keep an eye on Reg Rankin, leader of the Martin Martinists, a small group who believe that Martin Martin, a TV psychic consigned to the daytime schedules back in 2008, was the saviour and a prophet. The government murdered him. Now the Martin Martinists are plotting the Revelation, which will finally bring justice, truth, revenge." "Jensen infiltrates this small cell, which is not without its benefits - there's a pretty girl named Claire." "Then the floating starts." "Jensen floats out of the window. Or he shuts his eyes and finds himself in the past, in the TV studio with Martin Martin. The world is not what it seemed. It is turned upside down, sometimes literally."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)
