Dead famous – ben elton. Big brother and reality TV in general is the target of this Ben Elton satire, blended together with a murder mystery. The question posed is hence fascinating – how do you commit a murder and get away with it when you’re being watched all the time? Unfortunately the answer is quite obvious and although there are funny moments generally the book, though very readable, is not as entertaining as some of his earlier work. More interesting to read for some background insight into how TV works than anything else!
