Customer Review

22 April 2012
It is perhaps best to start when commenting on this book with the end. It comes as a shock but somehow we feel as terribly inevitable after all that has happened with these two characters throughout their amazing road journey. In a way this ending makes the book, and at the end we feel deflated but we also ask ourselves could it have been any other way? Neil and Jack, so different in nature, are an odd couple and the book delineates the difference very well. Neil, at once dangerous and unstoppable and Jack, more deep-thinking and anxious, set out together to try and find themselves, penetrate the phrase 'meaning of life'. What they do find is interesting and believable but always taken on board quite differently by each character. Neil, a one time young offender, and Jack, a hopeful writer, see the world in completely different terms. Neil beds his women while Jack is much more reticent. But what both characters do find is love even if it is only in one another's unique friendship. A must-read book for anyone interested in a culture clash which results in deep feeling and an uncommon bond.
