Show of Hands, by Anthony McCarten

Absolutely incredible book- wonderful.
Set at a failing car dealership, 40 people begin trying to win a new Range Rover in a contest of who can keep one hand on the car the longest. As days go by, contestants drop out, learn about each other, learn about themselves, and the reader is in for a devastating ride.
This was impossible to put down- I'm so glad I read it.
Heartbreaking and also an incredible glimpse of people's stupid, vain courage and determination to have one, shiny thing.
Hell of a good book.
