STAR RATINGS GUIDE
Endearing, witty, an entertaining commentary on human nature.
💛 This is one of my favourite books and has influenced a lot of my own writing, particularly The Lottery Club.
🧡 More about the characters than the plot, it is a darkly funny exploration of the point of living and the meaning of happiness.
💚 Nick Hornby's style is so distinctive it's hard to compare him to others. But if you like this, try Nick Spalding for light humour, Mike Gayle for flawed characters and - one of my faves - Paul Torday, for both.
