  1.  Good read

    Posted: 

    Good read, finished this in a couple of days. Was a page turner in true Linwood Barclay style, the only downside is that becuase the pace is so fast you didn't really care for any of the characters as there isn't much room for chracter development. But nevertheless a gripping read!

  2.  Hilarious

    A must read for all Partridge fans, love the passages about Alan's early years and his relationship with his parents which gives great insight into why Alan is Alan! Very well (and grammatically correctly) written!

  3.  Disney Classic!

    Absolute Disney Classic, perfect family viewing, an absolute must have for your collection!

  4.  Good concept, dreadful book

    Posted: 

    The concept of dipping in to one day of someone's life over a period of years is a great one so a good idea for a book. But the characters are badly evolved, total opposites to the point of terrible cliches and without any depth. There were passages in the book that were beautifully written but these were few and far between, the majority read like an attempt by a first year English student at a bad university.

  5.  Definitely recommended

    Really enjoyed this and started to race through it but had to slow down in order to prolong the process. What was great was the way Hill can flip the narrative from being coarse and action packed to being poignant and tender which makes this book a 'complete' story.

  6.  Enjoyable but predictable

    A little too predictable in places and feels a bit like its been written as part of a production line, but nevertheless an enjoyable, easy read.
