AMNESIA by Peter Carey

My review of, here: http://www.spectator.co.uk/books/9360262/amnesia-by-peter-carey-review/

I ought to add that under normal circumstances I'd "never ... lose an opportunity of reasoning against the head-dimming, heart damping principle of judging a work by its defects" (Coleridge quoted by P.J Kavanagh in the Spectator a few years ago now) - but I had been very much looking forward to Amnesia, and I was seriously disappointed (as will be fairly obvious if you read the review).
