How he does it, we may never know... but Nick Hornby has crawled far into the recesses of the female mind and from it produced a winning novel of love, life, and the inevitable conflict brought to us by our own responsibilities. Our anti-heroin grabs hold of the most sympathetic parts of us and rips them to shreds, only to piece them back together again with precision and a smile. I finished it and started it over immediately.
Laugh out loud funny - I hardly want to part with this book!
How much is too much to have when others have less? This story is a fascinating and funny account of what would happen if your spouse suddenly wanted to do good in the world - in a big way.
Turns your ideas of everyday life upside down.
A bit different than Hornby's other novels. Still just as funny and witty, this one struggles with an ethical dilemma of what to do when your life partner suddenly decides to start acting like an angel.
An interesting and entertaining parable; how good is "good?" What happens to your "goodness" (if you are a relatively "good" person) when your spouse has an epiphane and becomes "saintly?"
