    Liza Cody has pulled out all the stops for this intriguing novel, and the result is better than ever. Freed from the voice of her innovative Eva Wylie character, Cody creates a new collection of individuals for us to enjoy and care about. We get to know not only the beautiful, talented, and deceptive Birdie, but also her sister, her niece and a boyfriend, two generations of rock musicians, some crafty dealers in the rock music business, and even a couple of private detectives. As always, Cody draws us to the woman who is tougher than life, and now, the plot is as thoroughly engaging as the characters. Even Cody's signature dream references are top notch. Gimme More should please Cody's fans and attract new readers.

    A masterpiece, of sorts. It depicts the rock n' roll stage, the rockstar bachstage and the music shark wings marvellously, showing how these sharks use the naiveté and at times simplemindedness and inner hostility of these rock n' roll groups to provide them with golden crumbs when they keep for themselves the gold ingots though these are nothing but the proceeds of the rock n' roll bands' work. In other words these bands are robbed of the money they make and their fame is hijacked into narcissism, drug use and hangover, the three things that make them blind to the highway robbery they are sumitted to. Then the book is also a masterpiece when dealing with copyright, not author rights, but copyright in England or the US where author rights are not recongnized. If you know what she is speaking about you will understand the demonstration. If you jknow about the debate concerning the downloading of music by Internet users you will understand what she is aiming at : denouncing and exposing in the most attractive, thrilling and fascinating way possible the freedom Internet users want to enjoy when downloading music, which means they want to do it for free though the only people who will be ripped off are the musicians, composers and authors because be quite reassured about the producers and other music sharks : they will make billions from the technology necessary to digitalise the music, to transport the digitalized music and to download this digitalized music. You will even enjoy how this sly Birdie is managing the official « producer » of Jack's music, the owner of the copyright of his music into refusing to sign a contract which allows her to go and negociate with a competitor, because in this copyrighted world, when an artist has been copyrighted by a producer, he cannot change producers as long as the first one does not refuse to sign a contract with him for new music pieces. The artist is enslaved to the copyright-holding producer. Liza Cody makes the adventure, the fight, the struggle, the debate so vivid that we are persuaded it is a thriller and convinced we are dealing with gangsters and thieves, though they are realistically perfect, these copyright-holders in the book. Liza Cody then is a lot more than entertaining us on two essential subjects : roch n' roll music for young people and the exploitation of the musical slaves. Then she makes some producers and slave-exploiting kapos appear as perverts and bad losers, but and because they are perverts and badlosers. This is not an illusion nor a fantasy : they have to be perverts and badlosers in order to survive in that harsh harsh world. So the ending, though slightly sentimentalese, is refreshing : you could escape the sharks by dealing with some other pikes, in other words fresh water sharks who are reducing the tension a little, at least for a while.Dr Jacques COULARDEAU, University of Paris Dauphine & University of Paris 1 Pantheon Sorbonne

    And if you don't believe it, read Gimme More, or Bucket Nut, or the short story called Lucky Dip (the first story in "A Woman's Eye," a female mystery writer compilation edited by Sara Paretsky). I want to find all the rest of Liza's books sometime in the next six months and read them and share them with my friends who like quirky, street-smart, character-driven, plot-twisting tales about women and girls who think on their feet, who aren't predictable (or necessarily likeable), and who are at the center of stories that are very human and yet very suspenseful. Liza's books are those that you can't put down. And they don't let you down if you're looking for a memorable read.
