Longlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2011. The socialist state is in crisis, the shops are empty and old Bucharest vanishes daily under the onslaught of Ceaucescu's demolition gangs. Paranoia is pervasive and secret service men lurk in the shadows. In The Last 100 Days, Patrick McGuinness creates an absorbing sense of time and place as the city struggles to survive this intense moment in history. He evokes a world of extremity and ravaged beauty from the viewpoint of an outsider uncomfortably, and often dangerously, close to the eye of the storm as the regime of 1980s Romania crumbles to a bloody end.

    " This book was right up my alley. I thought it was intelligently written, unusual and loved the combination of historical facts wrapped up in a fictional storyline. I can see the validity in other book reviewers who have called this book dry. It does have a tendency to be dry and depressing in the description of Romania during the period of time that it is set in. I have heard this book called "dark" but one must remember when the book was set. I did have a difficult time with that, but found that is actually what kept my fascination with the book. I have not come across a large number of fictional books written during the time of Nicolai Ceausescu and Romanian history. "

    " It's a bit of a slow burner and a bit flat in places. The last chapter was the most enjoyable for me as the drama increased. Throughout though it's a very descriptive read obviously written by a poet, rich with satire and humour. "

    " A great insight into life in a communist state. Good characters in a tumultuous period of time. Great writing. "
