The story lays the ground work early on for the development of Bash throughout the book and I have to say that as much as he was an ass to start with I actually took to him and wanted to see what the author had in store for him.
Life was one sea of irresponsibility until in the blink of an eye on one ill-fated night – everything changed but as his family garner around him in what you think would be protection you will be sadly mistaken because I got the feeling that it was more about them saving face than their son’s wellbeing.
Shipped off at his mother’s behest – he is forced to take a look at the person he is and what he sees is not someone he likes and is not what and who he wants to be and to his credit I think he finally sees that it is only him that has the power to change his future, not that his mother would agree.
I liked Bash – I could have bashed him around the head at times but he had a naivety in a way that spoke to me, he loved his Nanny and had a fabulous relationship with his tutor Tess.
But could he cut the apron strings and stand tall being the man that he needed to be, not for anyone other than himself.
I felt like he could finally grow into the man he was supposed to be and with Tess he could find a love that he had never really experienced before.
Tess was like a breath of fresh air in Bash’s life and she breezed her way through the book and I loved that about her, she wore no airs and graces, she was determined and resolute but she cared for those around her and most of all she cared for Bash.
The end appeared at first to be a tad surprising but I have to say that on reflection it was pitched perfectly and I am keen to see where the story goes next.
When he is in England he has all the things that money can buy but after an unexpected event everything changes. He goes to America where his budget is more limited, and he starts to realize about the pleasure to get things by his own effort. There he meets Tess, a class mate who teaches him a lot of things about life and goals.
Sometimes funny, sometimes sad, full of twists that change everything in a second, it’s a book young adults and adults alike can read and enjoy.
I gave just 4 stars (I couldn’t give 4 and a half) because of the grammatical errors and misspelt words, not important but annoying.
Sebastian Irons' life is out of control, at only 17 he's out partying, drinking, doing drugs and womanizing to the best of his ability. But when he flunks out of Eton, and his friend Colin dies at his home his mother has enough and banishes him to America where he meets the understated and intelligent Tess, who helps him change his life around and become the man he can be rather than the man that he was.
Firstly I couldn't help but draw some comparison to Brideshead Revisited while reading Life's What You Make It (made even more apparent to me by the fact that Sebastian was reading said book at one point), particularly in relation to the rich boy at school not really having any direction and partying his life away...though it does stop later in the book so the comparison only works to a certain level.
What I really liked about Life's What You Make It was the juxtaposition of Sebstian and Tess' personalities. On the one hand there was the all out party boy, and on the other hand you had the intelligent good girl who is so determined to do well in school that she ignores other aspects of her life. Though what I enjoyed even more was seeing the effect that the two characters had on each other, even in a none romantic setting, and how they grew together.
There was also a definite theme of who the parent actually was going on in Life's What You Make it, in this case it was whether Sebastian's mother was really the mother figure in his life, or whether it was Nanny who he seemed to garner genuine love and affection for. I can't help but always find this kind of topic moving in books and this was no exception.
