This review is from: New Boy (Mass Market Paperback)
Well, this book is so relatively short I read it in one sitting. Once I was done, I had the feeling that I had spent the last few hours in the company of a really unpleasant person. I so disliked the lead character I found it hard to enjoy the rest of the book. I understand that his attitude fitted into the scene in the 1980s, but it still taints what is quite a touching tale. Having said that, I found the story really quite predictable and, with such short chapters, a little hard to get into.
Generally could have been a lot better.
