Summary

Oligarchy is Scarlett Thomas' fierce and brilliant new novel about power, privilege and peer pressure. When Natasha, daughter of a Russian oligarch, arrives for her first day at an all-girl boarding school, she finds herself thrown into a world of fierce pecking orders, eating disorders and Instagram angst. Then her friend Bianca mysteriously vanishes, and the world of the school gets ever darker and even weirder.

Scarlett Thomas' first adult fiction since 2015 is a major return. Wildly frank, funny and full of humanity, Oligarchy reminds us how insightful, vulnerable, brilliant and misunderstood teenagers are, never more so than now.

Great narration

I love that the book is read by the author. That means the intonation is along the lines of what she wanted when she wrote the book. She does it really well, and we get a clear impression of these often sulking and bored teenage girls.
