4 months later and I finally read this! It was the first book I'd read on my new paperwhite kindle.

Overall I enjoyed it. I liked that it was pretty easy read and not overly-long so it didn't feel like it was pushing the point. I found myself telling my OH about funny/ interesting bits of the story which is normally a good indication I'm enjoying it. I too was intrigued throughout whether it was a breakdown or not. I was also happy it made me listen to Clair de Lune. The list at the end was too long and a bit pretentious, but Leonardo Da Vinci made me laugh too.

Finally finished this myself the other day and I really enjoyed it. I thought the whole list thing was actually quite nice, and whilst some of it was a little trite, I could imagine something like that making a difference to a troubled teenager.

My two young teenage boys have just finished this and thought it was very clever.
Which probably explains why I didn't like it at all :-)

I know what you mean, pesto. :)
It was primarily marketed to a YA readership and I think that was a good move by the publisher.

Not sure who, if anybody in particular, Matt Haig was writing for.

As I recall, he was writing it for himself

You should not feed your dog peanut butter, it is not good for them.

Got something to say?
