    The last Michael Frayn novel I read was Skios and I spent the book feeling like I was reading a movie pitch albeit a long one Maybe it would have made a good movie but it failed as a book perhaps because of these conflicted purposesThe other day I discovered sitting in the bookshelves unread as yet Now You Know Written or rather published twenty years before Skios and shortly after the splendid A Landing on the Sun I had great expectations Which were unmetWhy did you start doing this Mr Frayn Having your cake and eating it Writing novels with an eye to the stage Don't write novels if that's your plan I read this thinking just like Skios that it was the detailed plan for a play A play this time not a movie which was the sense I got with Skios maybe because it had an exotic location This time felt wrong because the characters spoke in some way characters speak in a play and not in a novel I can't say exactly what that means it's just my intuitive reaction I kept seeing some stalwart of English TV playing the main character I kept wanting to speak his lines out loud see lines That's how it felt And at the same time none of the characters took form in my mind's eye the way they should in a book It's like I need to see the play in order to flesh them outrest here

    Frayn is in good form with this satire about secrets and lies Terry runs an organization that campaigns for open government Perhaps predictably his own life is a tissue of obfuscation cover up and delusion There's nothing biting here and the characters might well come from a West End farce Terry as lothario is particularly implausible But Frayn is a master of plot and he is fully in control of this one Not his best but still very enjoyable

    We rhad 'Now You Know' with our book group a few years ago We had all loved previously 'Headlong' and this was amusing but not uite as funny nor uite as interesting for us as 'Headlong' has proved Great writer though


  5. Michael Martin Michael Martin says:

    The weakest novel I have read by Michael Frayn The shifting narrative makes it incredibly difficult to discern who is speaking much of the time I think it would have made a far better play than a novel


  6. Robert Wechsler Robert Wechsler says:

    This novel gets off to a rocky start due to the primary narrator’s annoying voice But other voices are added to and as the novel progresses until all the characters get a chance now and then Clever tough to follow when you don’t read straight through and yet both effective and entertaining in Frayn’s hands

    i tried and tried to like this book but i just couldn't get into it at all and i figure i have too many books to read to waste my time on something that doesn't grab me right away unless someone out there tells me i'm making a huge mistake it's going in the donation pile

    Crazy Just crazy Great for farcical entertainment


  9. Jef Jef says:

    enjoyable but a bit difficult to read because of multiple first person narrative once you get past that it's smooth sailing
