It took a while to warm up this book. At first the language was off-putting. I have to admit that I was putt off by A Clockwork Orange as well. However, the protagonist in Black Swan Green is so likable and so real that I finally got over it. He isn't perfect, but you get a sense that his concerns and feelings are real. You feel like you are actually finding out what it is to be him. Nothing too exciting happens. There is no real all encompassing plot. We just get a year in the life. While that might sound boring to some, it is written in such a way that it is anything but.
