An accomplished work. Finely observed and humour in dark places. Would highly recommend. Loved it!

I simply LOVED this book! I was concerned that the unusual and dark subject matter would be depressing and grim, but I need not have worried. Written with warmth and affection, it moved me to tears in places, but also made laugh out loud. Yes, you kind of know how (or hope) it is going to end, but this certainly didn't spoil my enjoyment of the book. An uplifting read.
