review 1: I would not have picked this on my own, but it was an ARC given to me. So, lovely story that I won't rehash here but this story has a quiet beauty and lyricism that is made more remarkable in that Emma Hooper is a debut novelist. I certainly recommend this novel to anyone interested in a story with warm three dimensional characters that will stay with you a very long time. And James? What is there about James that is so special? Read the book!
review 2: Hmm, despite quite a few people I know raving about this book - or perhaps as a result of this - I was fairly underwhelmed and unmoved. My main problem was the unlikely premise of the main story, which isn't a good start, and I couldn't help but compare it to Fredrik Backman's A Man Called Ove. This just didn't
... morebegin to affect me in the same way. If you're looking for a story about determined, belligerent old buggers then Ove's your only man. less
