A solid 4.5 stars, but I feel the need to reduce the score a tiny bit, as somehow - for once - the film is better than the book. However, this shortish novel is both moving and profound, despite (or perhaps precisely due to) the narrator's limited and at times rather crude vocabulary, and the second half especially is full of hilarious moments. I've been chuckling away on my flights today, and must admit I let out a moan of utter disappointment when I finished the book. Definitely one to recommend!
