So I know the book well.
I like that there's a lot of questions in the book that arise about social class systems, as well as how men and women view sex differently. I'd be very curious to hear what women think of this book as the lead female is actually more into sex than the lead guy is.
This is a far more polished novel than one generally expects from a first time novelist. It is also a page turner, very funny and unusually honest and frank, particularly the childhood and teenage scenes, which are bound to strike a chord with all readers.
Mr Hourigan has a knack of turning the mundane into the fascinating or entertaining, whether it be place or people. The novel is populated with all kinds of unique characters, but to my mind it is the character of Lily who really steals the show. A nymphomaniacal exploiter of men and women, Lily is a deeply interesting, entertaining and wild character who lights up every page she is on.
I highly recommend this novel to anyone who likes to be surprised when they read, to chuckle and to cringe, and to feel you are in the hands of a writer who will take you where you want to go.
I throughly enjoyed Hourigan's first piece and look forward to the next installment for Christmas?
Thank you for the gift of another perspective.
There are several very vivid and engaging characters, and Joshua, the main character, immediately draws you in to their meshed stories. I really enjoyed the story and look forward to reading the second book in the series.
I loved the way that the novel was set up, starting out in present day and building up to the moment when Josh meets Ellie, his future wife, only to be taken back to his childhood, building the story back up again until that moment of climax. The structure seemed very original to me, and it worked very well as a way to center the story on the dream Joshua once had about who his soul mate would be. By the end of the novel, I felt fully immersed within the stories each character had to tell, and as it left off rather abruptly, I as a reader wanted to find out what was going to happen to Josh next.
Joshua and Lilian are two very frank characters of the book that can bring out your childhood sins (if you have any). It takes you to the beginning of how it all started.
I love this book because there are excellent character development and clear narrative. I enjoyed Joshua's desire of becoming a writer and his struggles with love and ambition. It's honest, perverted and funny book.
It is written with detailed "precious" moments that reminded me about my school days and first love. Many books I've read takes me to new experiences but not many take me back to my forgotten ones.
I really enjoyed it and look forward to reading more of his books.
