Couldn't wait to read this,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bottle (Paperback)Having read 'Nails', I could hardly wait to read this sequel, though I agree that it could have stood alone. I did wonder about the title, thinking perhaps it referred to the British slang meaning: courage. I still think it possibly might, even though the actual reason is made obvious within the story, as well as the contents of the bottle (yuk!)
I am not going to give away the entire plot in this review, as I feel that has been well enough done already. Suffice to say that this book deals with Kevin's shock, subsequent emotional turmoil and grief upon hearing of the death of a former lover. Anyone who has ever lost anyone can fully empathise with Kevin's state of mind as he tries to 'act normal' and put on a brave face to his friends and dismiss his unworthy relationships.
An extremely good read, once you get used to the constant switching from past (not passed) to present. But that's what Kevin's mind was doing - and he takes you right there with him.
