Enjoyable in small chunks
I have to confess that I've not actually finished this book yet, but I do have every intention of getting there. I found this book to be really interesting simply because it was about an ordinary life in the most part. I found myself laughing out loud at some bits, and reading certain stories aloud to my partner, but I can't keep reading it for long in one go. From the outset Simon is humble about his skills as an author, and at first I liked this, but after a while the book did feel a bit rambly, and I was eager to get further along. For the time being I've put this down as I got caught up into the next book club book, but I have every intention of returning to read the end.
