Great at the beginning. Loses some steam in the middle. Crashes and burns in the end. This book is as tasty as a regular Wonka's Scrumptious Fudgemallow Delight but don't expect any golden ticket inside.

Lori Have you seen the movie? The book and the movie are a near match.... Enjoy!

Rauf No I have not seen the movie unfortunately. I want to. I already read a few pages of this and I was instantly hooked. Hooked, I tells yah! I reluctantly had to put it down 'cause I want to finish Road to Wigan Pier first.

Lori Great book, great film. You must see it once you are done!

Grace Tjan I much prefer About a Boy to this one.

Rauf Me too, Sandybanks.

Grace Tjan How To Be Good is OK too, although not as good as About a Boy. I didn't like Long Way Down (the one about the suicides) that much, although it's not bad.
