Lent me by a friend.

I had some comments up for this one, but they've gone, so re-writing. When I say I've read, I only managed about 60 pages. It wasn't for me, despite some good writing. I may re-read when I'm in a more whimsical mood. Fat boy who works in a gym, loses his job, works in a chip shop, gets burnt, meets a strange child in hospital.. that's as far as I got. I kept thinking he's telling me too much, why am I being told this...

Having said that I passed it on to my eldest (21 year old) and she loves it, so maybe it's an age thing...

and I was just saying (on another review) how I don't abandon books, but 'Volt' came along, and that called to me and told me to stop everything and read it: two stories in, it's brilliant. Terrifying and riveting and bone melting. Should put this information on that book's review i spose..
