  • (4/5)
    Brilliantly funny in parts, a fever dream of female friendships and experiences and - at times - unexpectedly heartwarming.
  • (5/5)
    Animals tells the story of Laura, an aspiring author whose ambitions are somewhat curtailed by her hard-partying lifestyle courtesy of flatmate and best friend Tyler. Both women are in their late 20s/early 30s and take full advantage of the drugs and drink on offer in Manchester in 2012. Laura is also engaged to a newly sober pianist who frowns on the excesses that he once partook in, and her father is being treated for late-stage cancer.I loved so many things about this novel that I'm not sure where to begin. Laura herself is a wonderful character - deeply flawed but likeable, as you can see she has good intentions (sometimes) but is too tempted by various vices to follow through on many of them. I loved the interplay between Laura and Tyler as they get wrecked in various venues around Manchester - and I LOVED the way that Manchester itself is written throughout the novel.The novel is definitely laugh-out-loud funny, but only if you're not easily offended/disgusted and are happy to stick with characters who might seem unlikeable/unpalatable at first. Luckily I was prepared thanks to the 'like Withnail...' quote on the front cover, and even more luckily I'm a huge fan of Withnail and I, so I would say that the quote rings true in the very best way! The writing itself is excellent - Unsworth has a wonderful way of aptly describing something/someone in a few choice words instead of indulging in long paragraphs of detail. I zipped through Animals in a couple of days not just because the novel is fairly short, but also due to its very readable style.I'm definitely going to get hold of Adults by the same author soon, and also watch the film adaptation of Animals (although it's a bit disappointing that it's set in Dublin rather than Manchester!).
