Bright Young Things
By

Rating
'Bright Young Things wanted for Big Project.' They're in the prime of their lives but our bright young things are all burnt out. Six sparky twenty-somethings just out of university and working dead-end jobs, they are all bored to tears with their lives and looking for a way out. When a mysterious job is advertised in the newspaper, they all apply. What they least expect is to find themselves prisoners on a deserted island. There's food in the fridge and they have a bedroom each, but there's no telephone, no television, and no way to escape.

Reviews

* A generation defining masterpiece Matt Thorne * Invigorating, sexy ... clever. Daily Mail * A break for the big time. Independent on Sunday * Pacy writing ... an impressive debut. Big Issue * Compulsive, edgy. Loaded * An exciting read. FHM * This book might just change your life Independent on Sunday on POPCO * Thomas pulls off this intellectual rollercoaster of a novel with dry humour and panache, the ideas sparkle and the protagonist is wryly appealing The Sunday Times on THE END OF MR Y * Thomas can discuss quantum physics and philosophy while making you think you're reading a sparkling romantic comedy. Kate Saunders, The Times on OUR TRAGIC UNIVERSE
