Entertaining but generic.,
This review is from: The Best A Man Can Get (Paperback)
This is an easy and entertaining read - good for the train or beach - being formulaic with basic but sympathetic characters. The plot is pretty predictable and the characters, while likeable, have no depth. To exist as both father and 'lad', is a nice concept and worth a daydream.
Rather than this, I would recommend Tony Parson's 'Man and Boy' or Nick Hornby's 'About a Boy', which are far superior novels, with a greater depth of character and emotional pull.
