Inconceivable by Ben Elton

Book Description

Sam and Lucy seem like the perfect couple. Successful, happy and in love. But life isn't that simple. Lucy thinks thinks Sam is a sad, cold sensitivity-exclusion zone who would rather read a newspaper than have an emotion. Sam thinks Lucy is blaming him because she can't walk past Mothercare without getting all teary. The problem is that they might be infertile. And in more ways than one. Lucy wants a baby. Sam wants to write a hit movie. And given that the average IVF cycle has about a one in five chance of going into full production, Lucy's chances of getting what she wants are considerably better than Sam's. What Sam and Lucy are about to go through is absolutely inconceivable. The question is, can their love survive? Or are the odds stacked against them once again?

Time and Time Again by Ben Elton Time and Time Again, Hardback (December 2015)

Ex-soldier Hugh Stanton learns from a Cambridge academic that time travel is possible and decides to return to June 1914 to prevent the First World War in this page-turning sci-fi thriller.

Two Brothers by Ben Elton Two Brothers, Paperback (August 2013)

As Germany marches into its Nazi Armageddon, the ties of family, friendship and love are tested to the very limits of endurance. And the brothers are faced with an unimaginable choice... Which one of them will survive?

Meltdown by Ben Elton Meltdown, Paperback (July 2010)

For amiable City trader Jimmy Corby money was the new Rock n' Roll. His whole life was a party, adrenalin charged and cocaine fuelled. If he hadn't met Monica he would probably have ended up either dead or in rehab. But Jimmy was as lucky in love as he was at betting on dodgy derivatives, so instead of burning out, his star just burned brighter.

Blind Faith by Ben Elton Blind Faith, Paperback (May 2008)

Imagine a world where everyone knows everything about everybody. Where 'sharing' is valued above all, and privacy is considered a dangerous perversion. Trafford wouldn't call himself a rebel, but he's daring to be different, to stand out from the crowd. In his own small ways, he wants to push against the system.

Reviews

UK Kirkus Review » While all Elton's ventures (stand-up comic, TV sitcom author) have enjoyed considerable success, his writing has had a hit-or-miss quality that alternates between witty and inventive writing and crass or unfunny work. It's good to report that this novel is Elton at his very best: tightly plotted, with a wealth of well-developed characters and (most importantly) splenetically funny. Starting with a joke in the very title, Elton introduces us to Sam and Lucy, who seem to be enjoying the good life, with Sam's BBC career in full expense-account flourish, while Lucy plans for their first baby. But are the couple infertile? Sam, while not objecting to the idea of fatherhood, has ambitions to write a hit movie. Although the series of undignified tests strain the couple's relationship, the life-affirming qualities of Elton's warmly involving narrative has us hoping for a happy resolution. Possibly Elton's most mature novel - and certainly one of his funniest. (Kirkus UK)
