fabulous book. one I will (unusually) read again. Beautifully written and very emotional.

 Very descriptive author

I have read this book twice now. The author writes so descriptively you can almost feel yourself being there. He brings his characters to life and you feel like you know them personally. This is a great story about a cultural and class divide. How one boys perception of life is influenced by those around him. Only hope the film is as good as the book

 Serious, emotional and brilliant

Everyone suggests this book or has heard about it so i decided i should expand and read some more serious books.

In summary it has some gruesome parts, it's real, it's honest and you can really think about how people live.

A gripping but completely engaging book to read.
