    About a Boy Kindle à About a Epub / Paperback about free, About a book, About a Boy PDF35 starsNot sure who I'd recommend this to but I enjoyed it well enoughIt's basically a story about a fucked up guy with zero substance a fucked up 12 year old dork and his fucked up crazy hippie motherTo me none of these three were very sympathetic characters I mean Marcus was the only one who even slightly deserved any pityBut even for a kid he was gratingly dense I just wanted to shake the shit out of him for being such a pussy

    About a Boy Kindle à About a Epub / Paperback about free, About a book, About a Boy PDFI have weird habit of reading books that were made into movies AFTER I've seen the movies Dopey right I don't know why I love to do this I guess just to see how it all turns out on the other endAnyway this review is pretty straight forward About a Boy is awesome Like the rest of Hornby's work that I've read it's hilarious in such a BRITISH way so dry the laughs usually coming from some poor uptight Brit's bumbling embarrassment I also admire Hornby for writing consistently about men in a very honest and entertaining way In this case he also gets into the mind of the eccentric troubled Marcus who's twelve and being raised by a depressed hippy mom who sings earnest folk songs with her eyes closed this most spot on description of Marcus' mother and uncool people generally comes up often in the book and always cracked me up beautifully Marcus is that tragically unhip kid who is completely deprived of television and pop culture We all

    About a Boy Kindle à About a Epub / Paperback about free, About a book, About a Boy PDFAbout a Boy is a book that I've dreamed about a meaningful book about human relationships as opposed to adventures that is to the point and not chock full of rambling and embellishing imagery Sadly I'm very honest and I can't rate this 55 The reasons why I like this book and why I can't give it a bogus score are the same I'm very like Marcus The old me is like the old Marcus from before he changed at the end The newer me is still like him But enough of us The titular reference to Nirvana hit me after the umpteenth mention of the grunge band It was kind of daft so many dropping references to Nirvana But though I can see the point it felt still gratuitous The tricky thing that Nick Hornby has gotten into was that it was difficult to pull off treating the death of a real person so when he's such a celebrity I onc

    About a Boy Kindle à About a Epub / Paperback about free, About a book, About a Boy PDFLike most I have read this book after seeing the movie adaptation with Hugh Grant years and years ago The movie turned out to be a rather faithful adaptation of the novel but featured a completely different endingThe general plot of About a Boy is well known Will is a 36 year old single man who lives off royalties from a famous Christmas song that his father wrote Will doesn't have to worry about money and work and spends his life largely without responsibilities and commitments Looking for a new way to pick up women willing to go out with him Will invents an ingenious scheme he makes up a fictional ex wife and son which are to be his ticket into a single parent group where he hopes to interact with eager single mothers Despite having to constantly pretend to have a family the plan seems to be working until Will meets Fiona and her 12 year old son Marcus who ui

    About a Boy Kindle à About a Epub / Paperback about free, About a book, About a Boy PDFBrilliant ok that's just a bad homage to the Brits but really this was a funny sweet book I'd have given it a 35 but with no half stars at my disposal I'll give it the benefit of the doubt Anyway bought it bc I was looking for High Fidelity at our local used shop but this was the only Hornby on hand I'm glad since I saw the movie version of HF but not this so it was a good surprise It's a love story of sorts but not between lovers Rather between a mid thirties man child Will and a peculiarly wonderful twelve year old Marcus It's a book long uestion as to just who is the 'boy' in uestion but ultimately we find maybe both are and again maybe they're both men as well The cast of characters also includes Marcus' hippie dippy suicidal mom a handful of Will's female conuests Marcus' Nirvana loving fifteen year old dream girl the setting is early 90's London In combination they tread what could be dreary ground with endearing funny psychoses se

    About a Boy Kindle à About a Epub / Paperback about free, About a book, About a Boy PDFOriginally I picked up a friend's copy of this while watching babysitting simply as a means of amusing myself while the kid was happily playing with some toys I'd already seen the movie and figured the book would probably be something that I could pick up and put down fairly easilyI was wrongSee I went into this thinking I obviously knew the story and the characters but what happened was I uickly forgot about the movie version and became fascinated with the story of Will the selfish slacker who doesn't really have much of a point and Marcus the nerdy little boy who makes Will realize that yes he doesOnce I started reading I was hooked and ended up purchasing my own copy which I uickly devoured in about 4 days
