it was amazing

There is so much to love about this book.

Okay, I'm biased because I'm a Melbourne boy, and this book is very Melbourne (in the same vein as Metzenthen's equally wonderful Jarvis 24) and really struck a chord with me.

This book finds a perfect balance - wonderfully understated yet brimming with attitude, inventive without being contrived, outrageously-flawed yet very real characters, and stupidly romantic without being gushy. And there's a sublime poignancy about family, which kinda sneaks up on you without you noticing it.

Of course, I wouldn't recommend that readers go out and cheat on their partners with the next person they meet at the tram stop. But at the heart of this book is an important message that it's sometimes okay to take risks, and go with your gut feeling.
