Editorial Reviews

Review

"I started reading "Almost Home" by Frank Marcopolos under the assumptionthat it would be a very sports-centric novel and was therefore surprised to find out that it was actually much more than this. The plot hasseveral twists and turns and explores the overall drama of college lifewith particular attention being paid to the more seedy aspects.I found the book to be cleverly written, fast paced and interesting inthe way it explored multiple elements of University life, from the wildparties to life in the dorms. I also appreciated how Marcopolos givesthe readers a narrative that alternates between the viewpoints of bothBarry and Enzo. This alternating viewpoint ensured that I could attemptto understand the way in which the characters were acting to the pointthat at times I couldn't actually decide if I actually liked or disliked them. There really was no good or bad guys in the story, these weremeant to be characters with both negative and positive aspects which Ienjoyed seeing." - Killien Reviews

"A bildungsroman, a satire, a conspiracy theory, a grotesque parody, thoroughgoingly entertaining, and a sports novel....a wonderful read." - Hopeless Books, Uninc.
