4.0 out of 5 stars Gentle (ish) Giant, 12 Nov. 2008
This review is from: Carry Me Down (Paperback)
I have had this book on my shelf for a while, and picked it up this week for the first time. I finished it in 2 days on a return very long train journey.

It is a story of a boy, that thinks he has a gift and his frustration when people doubt it. He is no 'ordinary' boy for sure, but that is more to do with his appearance.

It is also a story of relationships, between the boy and his parents, and their own relationship and issues, and I enjoyed the realistic picture the author paints of a young boy trying to understand the complicated lives of adults.

A good read, and an easy read. I have read it for what it is, a book on my shelf that needed reading, and I am glad I did, and I ignored the hype of it being shortlisted for the Booker Prize.

I would certainly recommend Carry Me Down.
