5.0 out of 5 stars The most poetic, pithy and poignant prose I have EVER read., March 20, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Patrick Melrose Novels: Never Mind, Bad News, Some Hope, and Mother's Milk (Paperback)
I too didn't want it to end, wanted to savor it yet could't help greedily race through it--lost many hours of needed sleep unable to put it down. As the mother of a young boy I almost threw the book across the room when I came across the wretched scene, but am so grateful that I stuck it out. I was incredibly moved and inspired by the protagonist's struggle to be a better man and just how beautifully and humorously the author was able to articulate the human struggle. Will read everything this author ever writes. I should write a much more in-depth and thoughtful review-- this novel certainly deserves it, but I just started "At Last" and can't bear to be away from it. If you have any soul at all, it will devour this book and have such a relief from the insipid.
