100 Word Review: His Illegal Self

His Illegal Self is by twice winner of the Booker Price Peter Carey and from reading this book I can certainly see why has has won those awards. The structure of the novel, with no speech marks, constant change of narrative voice and flashbacks to the past, would be extremely difficult to the average writer and would normally make the book far too confusing to read. However, Carey does it wonderfully and instead of getting confused, the these things only enhanced the story and made it much more original and interesting to read. Everything about it is fantastic, I loved it.
