The war on drugs has been lost but for want of the courage to face the fact that the whole world is rapidly becoming one vast criminal network. From pop stars and princes to crack whores and street kids. From the Groucho Club toilets to the poppy fields of Afghanistan, we are all partners in crime.

High Society is a story, or rather a collection of interconnected stories, that takes the listener on a hilarious, heart-breaking, and terrifying journey through the kaleidoscope world that the law has created and from which the law offers no protection.

    " another great novel by elton, this one centred on drugs in society and their impact and influence... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Luke Smith | 2/12/2014

    " Favourite Ben Elton book. Engaging characters, interesting insight into drug legalisation. Loved it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hope | 2/9/2014

    " My favorite Elton work. I read it on my honeymoon in Thailand and it was a topic of conversation for about 6 months following. Everyone loves a good "leagalise everything?" debate "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jayne Charles | 2/5/2014

    " This is noticeably more slick than Elton's earlier work. Less prone to surreal ramblings, more mainstream. The story explores the modern drug problem from lots of different standpoints. Entertaining and thought provoking. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tim | 2/2/2014

    " Seemed like an interesting concept for a book, but I don't think he pulled it off. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pedro Martinez | 1/27/2014

    " A fable of redemption and punishment depicting the London upper class and its relationship with drugs. Constructed in short bits that collide together is a provocative and very quick novel to read "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelly | 1/24/2014

    " I thought this was a good read, parts are fairly grim, but it gives a good overview of drug use/abuse within the UK. I think Elton does a good job here "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Megan | 1/10/2014

    " This was really interesting and showed the 'War on Drugs' from the British perspective. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelly Smeeton | 1/5/2014

    " Easy to read, funny portrayal, of life with the possibility of legalised drugs. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tim Saunders | 11/30/2013

    " This really made me think. Where is the moral high ground, you guys? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Krista | 10/3/2013

    " Interesting story--not only for the plot, but for bringing up some issues regarding drugs and society. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Simon Mccarthy | 8/7/2013

    " Great book and examination of a culture. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Giselle Evans | 12/6/2012

    " Quite insightful and funny for a few pages then it was just more of the same. Unsurprising plot. Skipped to the end which was just sad. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jo | 9/15/2012

    " This was great - his usual biting sarcasm, but with a very thought-provoking central premise that has challenged a lot of my ideas about drugs. It's also pretty funny in a sick kind of way. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shameema | 3/22/2012

    " Interesting take on drug use and abuse. There need not be any two schools of thought about Elton's abilities as a humorist/satirist. Great crispy writing but not quite as good as Gridlock , the first book I read of Elton. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mark | 9/18/2011

    " Legalize it! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ewan Wilson | 8/22/2011

    " meh it was decent enough. cool scenes in a hackney club when a fucked up white chick is saved fro some predators and a great scene when some burglar is smacked over the head by a 20 stone afro caribbean wifey. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Saya Hashimoto | 7/16/2011

    " Lucid argument for legalising all drugs. Amusing as Elton's stuff usually is whilst reading as easily as a trashy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michelle | 6/12/2011

    " hilarious! one of the few books which claim to be funny and actually is. fab! "
