I decided that from now on every book written by this Author will be read and the decision is final.
He has this talent of describing everything so well that you actually feel you are in the characters heads , you feel what they feel and you see what they see and you relate to every single one even if they were the complete opposite of you.
The story is about a dysfunctional family (which family isn’t) and the events surrounding the marriage of the rebel daughter Katie to Ray who is by the family standards just wrong.
The book begins with the 61 year old Father George who finds a weird spot on his hip which he is convinced is cancer and he starts slowly but surly and hilariously losing his mind. The way Haddon describes him loosing his mind is funny and touching and just amusing that you think going crazy is actually fun.
The dysfunction is complete with Joan the cheating mother and Jamie the gay brother.
I want to just tell you the whole story here but I don’t want to ruin it. Go buy the book and be ready to laugh out loud and be lost and absorbed by this family drama.
A must must read, 5/5.
