    Summary Ë The Mark and the Void The Mark and the VoidI just read SIX three star novels in a row and here is NUMBER SEVEN which I am not going to finish because 219 pages of Paul Murray’s extremely mild investment banker related humour is enough for me this year I would like to break the asphyxiating cycle of this middling 3 star morass by rating this one or two but I can’t It’s not bad it’s just not what I want It’s extremely readable but after a while it’s wait a minute yes – no yes the prawn cracker effect again you eat and eat and you taste nothing just a plasticky ambience in the mouth area but you don’t stop eating no no no there’s nothing anyone could point out as being in any way unpleasant about prawn crackers except to say you could be using your teeth for something else Now this is the follow up novel to Skippy Dies which got a massive FIVE stars from

    Summary Ë The Mark and the Void The Mark and the VoidThe good news is that the Murray's satire is funny in places it is so funny that I was that odd commuter chortling away to himself The topic Murray picked is ripe for a tragi comedy bankers working in Dublin post financial crises One in particular Claude on the run from parental disapproval lives a life of total isolation outside of work and is therefore delighted when a writer approaches him to be the subject of his new novelAt its best the book does a great job of showing some of the bizarreness of the financial world I particularly liked how the book showed the complete alienation of the people employed by the bank from the low tax regime they maybe located in The open ending cast of characters in both the bank and the writer are really good Unfortunately as the book goes on the flashes of brilliance become rarer and rarer The author star

    Summary Ë The Mark and the Void The Mark and the VoidI'm not sure I can recall another novel which nudged into my imagination in uite the same way as The Mark and the Void It's a comic novel with a kernel of serious assertions perhaps philosophic observation at its center Hilarious situations and dialogue swirl around this center as huge storms encircle Jupiter Bits of Paul Murray's weightier views appear to have been torn from the novel's heavy core and can be encountered careening amidst the zany circulation around itMurray's a funny writer He's created dialogue and circumstances and outlandish characters that'll make you smile and might make the bubble of a laugh rise in you It's a novel of the recent financial crisis but located in Dublin where Claude Martingale is an analyst in the taxing work of making money for clients while rival banking institutio

    Summary Ë The Mark and the Void The Mark and the VoidThis is a hilarious and very important novel about how our financial well being essentially rests in the hands of gamblers aka the banking system Fate depends on where the moral compass is directed at any given moment in time The story is told through the eyes of French banker Claude whose personal circumstances lead him to Dublin's once Fair City in the lead up to the financial crisisMurray has created a wonderful lead character who is professionally at the pinnacle but emotionally vulnerable Murray injects the novel with his uniue wit and perspective and creates a page turning caper that turns the mirror onto society as a w
