Will Excellent! Another 5 star rating. Glad you enjoyed it, Lee.

message 2: by Lee (new) - rated it 5 stars

Lee Impossible to rate it otherwise. So much to love and admire, and it goes straight in the pantheon. All those ***** can't be wrong!

It's just one of those novels that is immediately mentally filed away with a certain kind of book - Dog Soldiers, Going Native, Huck Finn, Continental Drift, The Impostor - that are merciless, hard-won but ultimately very human. Rough-hewn art. And all ***** and timeless.

Susie Amiatu Great to see another five star review for this. I wish you all could have heard him read an excerpt. An amazing experience. He read the intimate scene with the girlfriend.

message 4: by Lee (new) - rated it 5 stars

Lee Oh boy! That scene! Yes, would've loved to have seen him do that. I for some reason saw during that the TV adaptation...

Susie Amiatu Yes! What David said about what Doug said about what Trudie said. Best rating I ever did see.

message 10: by Lee (new) - rated it 5 stars

Lee I already feel bad taking off that half star. Joint-fave from 2018 so far! And thwomp is still a ***** word.

Vicky "phenkos" Not heard of this, but your excellent score has got me intrigued... Straight on to my tbr list!

message 12: by Lee (new) - rated it 5 stars

Lee Vicky: Excellent news! TSH has been curiously ignored in a lot of the end-of-year lists but I think it will find a wide audience in time.

Claire So glad you loved this!
