Man Booker Prize recipient DBC Pierre won effusive praise for his debut novel Vernon God Little. His second novel, Lights Out in Wonderland fulfills the promise of his first with a tale of 21st-century disaffection.

Caught up in his decadent lifestyle, 20-something Gabriel Brockwell decides to kill himself. But before he does, he embarks on a quest for Wonderland - a bacchanal to end all bacchanals. His journey takes him around the globe, from London to Tokyo to Berlin, to taste all of life's wildest pleasures, only to emerge with a renewed spirit and a desire to make up for some of the terrible things he's done.

    " Poor Gabriel, all set to kill himself but first he has to save his friend who is in jail for murder by fugu. All this and lots of anti-capitalist sentiment. I would have made the ending a little rougher but still a fun read "

    " Simply incredible. Since I don't have the words to do the book justice I'm going to steal a few from DBC Pierre. It's a bacchanal of pure nimbus crafted for and by the Enthusiasms themselves. Exhausting, invigorating, depressing and life affirming all at once. An enthralling read. "

    " Writing style was interesting, but the story just didn't grab me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mikhail Baskov | 1/19/2014

    " Didn't like it at first. Drugs, booze, nonsense. But it is very deep. Severals levels... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jodi Boulier | 1/18/2014

    " I enjoyed reading this book. Makes one think about life and the purpose's of life. Wouldn't have been a my first pick off of the shelf by the looks of the cover, but it proved wrong. Nice work and well written. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rachel Wallis | 12/27/2013

    " I loved loved loved this. Although similar in tone and style to Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, this actually has a plotline and a structure and is very, very funny. I would say, don't take it too seriously, but an excellent book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jo | 12/11/2013

    " Can't fault the incredible imagination or the strong narrative, but man, I really wanted to punch this guy in the face. I concluded 2 things: 1) I'm now too old for disaffected 20's protagonists and 2) books really should be situationally appropriate, and this was not honeymoon appropriate. "

    " clever and engaging. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Amy | 12/26/2012

    " I did not enjoy this book. It did not at all hold my interest. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katrina | 11/4/2012

    " Enter Ikea stores at your own risk. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mindy | 9/8/2012

    " Enjoyed the writing, just couldn't manage to gel with the story exactly. Brilliant man, nonetheless! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lucy | 1/20/2012

    " I struggled with the first third of this book - it was chaotic and not particularly interesting. Once the character got to Berlin things improved & I really enjoyed the last part. If you do read it - persevere! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Liam Brown | 1/15/2012

    " Pierre's use of language is beautifully free, inventive and occasionally funny too. The plot is a bit thin and the end seemed a bit rushed. Still very enjoyable to read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kate Sidley | 11/23/2011

    " A wild and rather confusing rant against modern capitalistm, greed and alienation. Pity it didn't work - he is always surprising and occasionally inspired in his writing, and you always feel you should admire his bravado, if nothing else. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Casey Allan | 10/1/2011

    " Stunning albeit bizarre read. Highly entertaining. DBC Pierre's style is fantastic, as usual. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tuck | 9/7/2011

    " very nice story of why, or why not,you should top yourself. "
