's review

really liked it

The main character Alex is a teacher who hates teaching, has very difficult relationships with his co-workers, and a awful record with women, and to top it all off, he still lives at home with his mum! I felt that Alex was a typical ad that had not grown up in some ways, but as i read further into the book, i felt maybe it was his lack of social skills that were holding him back. He had had his heart broken but was unable to forget the past and move on. I felt that Alex was a possibly on the autistic spectrum with his awkwardness in social situations and his very focused and orderly life. I really began to warm to, and feel for Alex as his life at home moved from one disaster to another, and he became more and more alone. The return of his ex girlfriend and all the twists that involved was great, i found myself desperately wanting it to work out for Alex and 'Lucy'. The end was not as i was expecting, it could have gone several ways and kept me guessing right to the end. A good book with twists and turns, and great characters with plenty going on.
