5.0 out of 5 stars ...possibly the best book I've read this year., 1 Nov 2008
This review is from: The Silver Linings Playbook (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Pat Peoples is just out of `the Bad Place' - an institution where he's been for the past four years after a massive breakdown. He believes his life is a movie written and directed by God. He has a terror of Kenny G who haunts him in the night. He's lost his life and his home, and only lives to build the perfect body so he can win back his beloved wife, Nikki.

Pat is so angsty and damaged and utterly adorable. He knows he `screwed up' before with his rages and selfish demands. Now he only wants to 'practice kindness' as he moves through his small world, making friends wherever he goes - with his mom and his football-crazy brothers, with his analyst Cliff and his friends, the equally football-crazy, all-Indian, Asian Invasion Bus. Even with his sister-in-law, the deranged Tiffany, who, it seems, everyone thinks would be the perfect partner for him.

Hilariously funny, touching, delightful and heart-breaking, and possibly the best book I've read this year.

Tiffany isn't his sister-in-law; she's his best friend's wife's sister...
