I picked up this book for my husband who was born and bought up in Harrow and thought he would enjoy it. He didn't bother so I read it instead. He actually thought it would be full of stereotypes and not be all that funny. He was wrong and Im going to get him to read this now!

It is a kind of coming of age book about the main character, Amit, growing up in Harrow and attending a white private school. He doesn't quite fit into the rich white school but doesn't quite fit into the Asian community in Harrow either. Where he does seek solace is in music - hip hop.

Where do I start.... this book is just amazing. Its one of my favourite books of all time. The writing is just genius. The descriptions the feelings the emotions and the story - wow. Its just so original and the author takes you on an amazing journey. I loved the ending - it just comes together in such a way (i dont want to spoil it).

Read it!

This book was OK. Not bad but then not overwhelmingly good.

Its quite simple, basic and straightforward. I get that its about human nature, our roles in society and what we box ourselves and others into. I just think other books have covered similar themes a lot better.

It was a bit over emotional and played at the heart strings (all recent books seem to do this to the extreme to get that movie deal). I personally do not like this as it seems a bit fake and contrived. For some people, this gives them that emotional outlet they love to get from reading.

Oh well.
