Great teenagers book
, 19 July 2007
This review is from: Billy Liar (Mass Market Paperback)
I read this first when I was about thirteen and loved it although at the time I didn't really appreciate just how bitter sweet this book really is. It's packed with laugh aloud moments and I adored his descriptions of his parents, particularly his mother's 'motherisms' Coming back to it as an adult it is still very, very funny but much more poignant with the benefit of a bit of wisdom and hindsight. There is a sequel Billy Liar On The Moon but it lacks the innocence of the original. Billy Liar is also a great stage play and fab 1960's film.
