2012 book 288

Scarlett Thomas' Bright Young Things
I'm a pretty big fan of Thomas' writing, but this book has been out of print for years and so I've never read it . . . until now! It's about a group of six young people who are basically kidnapped while applying for a mysterious job, and find themselves stranded in a well-stocked house on a deserted island. It's an entertaining read, but I wished the bigger picture had been made more explicit. B/B+.
