BOOK: About A Boy – Nick Hornby

Brief Synopsis: Will is a confirmed bachelor swanning from one failed relationship to another. Marcus is an oddball 11-year-old dealing with a depressive mother and bullying.

 Good Points: This is a sweet tale about friendship and acceptance which doesn’t wind up being too syrupy.

Bad Points: It’s very simply written – the prose isn’t particularly beautiful to read.

Good For: A quick and simple story for a train journey.

Overall: 3/5
