I really don't understand what everyone is on about in relation to this book. I am giving it one star because I can't give it any less but I didn't dislike it, I loathed it. I thought it was crass, sick, gratuitous, badly written and absolutely depraved. The characters are all assholes (which is the point I guess), sexual degenerates and utterly underdeveloped. The dialogues are strained and pathetic, the premise could have been explored in so many other better ways and overall is was a waste of my time. I hated the caricature of English men and food, it was completely off and clearly written with American ignorance and clichés in mind, perhaps serving to further reinforce these stereotypes. It is going to the second-hand bookshop today, I am not embarrassing myself by having that shit on my bookshelf.
