Wow this is a book with many layers to it and it was not like anything I ve ever read before First of all this is a book about the infamous Winshaw family who is greedy and completely irritational and unbelievable The introduction tells of us this dysfunctional family as a whole but during the narrative we zoom in on the children and how they ve grown up into greedy and unsympathetic adults Second of all this is the story of the writer Michael who is hired to write a biography of the infamous Winshaw family His narrative works as a frame to the whole story and we freuently turn back to him and his endeavour to write down the family s history Third of all this book is based on an old horror movie called What A Carve Up a movie that works as a parallel to the story of the Winshaws and the writer Michael This novel comes with some very memorable scenes that were perfectly described and that have carved themselves into my memory pun intended It was a fascinating read but it was also a book that taught me to be patient and stick to the story through the rather long and dragging descriptions of the greedy family members not all of them were that interesting to read about but once you reached the end of their story it all made PERFECTLY sense What a book What a carve up
