A review of this — 6 years ago
I was really glad to have finally read this book, it was sitting on the shelf for years, I kid you not.
Anyway, it always kind of struck me as a book for reading in school, I don’t really know why that would be.
So I read it, I had no expectations of it, I like when I have no expectations of something, that way you can’t be dissapointed. Well, it didn’t really go anywhere, so I can see why someone would be kind of let down with it, but I saw it more as a snapshot of the guys life. Like how he came to realise certain things about him in a very short space of time, I like how he learns as he goes along in his rather haphazard way. He is so typical of us all at that sort of age, you don’t see more than you want to, but it sort of happens to you anyhow, I don’t know if that makes any sense at all, I have had 2 bottles of Grolsch whilst watching the rugby…
