Interesting & readable novel, 12 Jun. 2007
The novel "About a Boy", written by Nick Hornby is about the special relationship between Marcus, a 12-years-old boy an Will, a 36-years-old adult. They are completely different but they help each other in their problematic situation of life. Marcus doesn't want to be alone with his mother, because he has no frieds an he has a depressed mother. Will thinks that he has to live alone, he doesnßt want to have a family or friends. At the end, they are happy because Marcus shows Will that it isn't better if he is alone. So, Marcus become friends an Will become a new girlfriend.
It's a gripping, modern and realistic story about am everyday situation for a lot of people in the world. It shows you, that no man "is an isle".
I think that it's interesting and written in a funny way but if you are a naive person, you shouldn't buy it because you need a little bit of imagination...
