5.0 out of 5 stars The funniest and most honest memoir I've read in a long time, 8 Jun. 2014
This review is from: The House is Full of Yogis (Hardcover)
This might seem like an unusual story of a family turned upside down by a father's decision to follow a spiritual path, but actually it's a sweet, funny and touching account of how it feels to be a teenager in an uncertain world. Will Hodgkinson describes exactly how all of us struggle with life at 13 although his parents are a little more unusual than most. Although his Dad has taken to wearing robes and meditating and his Mum is busy branding her own version of feminism, Will describes his childhood without self-pity or anguish and is just as concerned with getting a girlfriend and his hairstyle. It's this approach to his account of his 'parents going weird' that makes it so enjoyable. Hodgkinson really captures teen angst, but never takes himself seriously. He's obviously taken a lot of time to think what his parents choices really meant to him and how they affected him and his brother. By the end of the book we see the family reconciled to Nev's decision and both sons emerging relatively unLarkined. I laughed out loud consistently through the book even when I was on the tube.
